In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Going Around the Bend

I made it all around the saying with the vine and the ends met up!

Given some of the other stitching problems I've had lately, I feel a great sense of relief.

Now I have to get all the little bitty leaves and stems stitched and then add the flowers. That will be a good thing to do while we're visiting Mother over the week-end.


Today is a special day for me--had he lived, my father would be 100 years old. The older I get, the more I appreciate all he lived through, and what a gentleman and gentle man he was in so very many ways.


  1. Woo-hoo...that's always a good thing! My husband always says he's a gentleman and a scholar and there's too darn few of them left!!!

  2. So satisfying when the border meets up correctly!

  3. Congrats on the ends meeting up properly!! Always a good feeling when that happens.
