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.

Flying Critters

There are about a bazillion flying critters flitting and fluttering around the sky around the big funky tree.

I was having a hard time getting the silly bugs in the right place. Every time I counted over from one motif to where I thought the next critter should be--then recounted to be sure I was in the right place--I came up in a different spot.

Wouldn't it be nice, I thought, if the darker grid lines from the chart were somehow superimposed on the linen so it would be easier to find the right spot for the butterfly/dragonfly/flying critter.

Well, duh.

The lines you see are the loose basting lines I stitched in so I could get the bugs where they belonged.

And now they're all stitched, and I am going to start the very last motif on the sampler.

  1. That's a rather extensive collection of flying critters! Great idea to mark your grid.
