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.

More small finishes

I have actually managed to do some finishing after work this week, although Zen stitching it is not!

I have a thimble cozy and a thread and pin organizer, which is a series of accordion pockets attached to each other. I was planning to show it with the pins inserted, but I discovered that the pins I intended to use were too long and stuck through the bottom. I think I am in the market for shorter pins.

I could start working on the carrier but I think that's pushing it on a Friday night. So I've been trying to decide what to stitch.

Now I did get a lovely thing in the mail earlier this week:

Looks like a lovely gift!

And it was, basically from me, to me by way of Sassy Jack's, who also included a needle minder and a needle and the equivalent of a book plate to go on the back of the frame when I finish this beauty.

But I'm trying to avoid starting anything new quite yet. I'm still thinking about finishing 20 by 20, so I believe I will work on something that's already started. Now it's just a matter of making a decision before it's bedtime.


  1. The thimble cozy and the thread/pin organizer are lovely. Well done on getting them finished! What a beautiful project you received from yourself via Sassy Jack's! Have a wonderful weekend!
