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.

A little squirrel-y

So, I have another finish:

I started this little guy back in February, so it was very definitely time to get him completely stitched.

He's only about 2" square, so I'm not quite sure how I want to finish him. There are five other designs in the series, all on the smaller size, so I'm thinking I may be able to get my framer to float them all--somehow--in the same frame. That is a discussion for another time.

I also finished the stitching for the accessory carrier for Tsubaki:

And I started outlining one of the pieces for the cover:

I think outlining all the pieces will be my goal for this week.

Is anybody else freaked out by the fact that the year is now half over? I'm also freaked out by the low number of finishes I've been able to accomplish thus far this year. Hopefully my mojo is going to return for the second half.


  1. Yes, It's so hard to believe it is July 1st tomorrow!!! Your work is looking great!

  2. Your squirrel is simply darling. Hard to believe we are into the 7th month of 2019!

  3. Love your little squirrel - he turned out great!

    I can't believe it's July - I'm still wondering what happened to April....
