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.

Since I've been home

I have been industrious since I came home.

I decided to stay with Fragrant Fragaria, the class from Sherri Jones I took a couple of months ago. It's been a lot of fun--those little motifs are quick to do, even on teeny tiny silk gauze.

Actually, I've started the pockets for the inside, and I have one-and-a-half of those stitched. For some reason (crappy photography skills, perhaps?), those pictures came out in a major blur. I'll try again later.

Mounting the gauze on muslin, cutting a window so you can stitch, and working this way has totally changed my opinion of silk gauze embroidery. I have a couple of things lurking in the stash--one is partially done--but they were mounted on cardboard frames. This works ever so much better, so there may be silk gauze coming out of the shadows to be finished. This is, of course, assuming I can figure out which bin or box the kits are in.

There are times when finding things in my stash is similar to embarking on an archaeological dig.


And a little big of blog business.

Like apparently everyone else, I can no longer receive comments in my email, so it's making it harder to respond to them. I read and appreciate every comment, but if I don't respond right away, I'm not ignoring you. Hopefully, this situation will become resolved in the very near future.

However, if you post spam in the comments section, I will delete your comment. I don't have time for that particular brand of foolishness!


  1. Your stitch is looking good. Hmm, keep sharing the silk gauze stitching. Hopefully, Blogger will get the comment thing fixed.

  2. Your Fragaria s coming along nicely; I haven't touched mine since class!!! :)
    I sure hope they can do something about this comment thing on Blogger SOON!!!

  3. Thank you both! And I hope the comment situation changes soon, too!!!

  4. It looks lovely! Did a double-take when I read that you're stitching on silk gauze since it looks like high count natural linen ... finally noticed that your frame is sitting on *wood*. I'd say I need more coffee, but it's after dinner!
