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.

Zen Finishing . . . NOT

I got it in my head that I could do some finishing after work.

Now maybe I could do the sewing part of it, but not the measuring, cutting, and ironing part. I should not be allowed close to a rotary cutter after either a visit with my mother or any intense work day--and I've had both since last I wrote.

So I decided to go back to Zen stitching and have picked up the kit for Ode to Jane Austen again.

Here is where I am after an evening of stitching:

I'm enjoying the rhythm of the leaf pattern and it fits into the soothing type of stitching that fits my life at the moment.  After work, I need to have something that will be easy to pick up.

But on the week-ends, watch out! I plan to wield that rotary cutter with a vengeance tomorrow and get the carrier case for Tsubaki underway!

  1. Good idea on keeping to Zen stitching during the week and then move on to Zen finishing over the weekends that don't include a visit with your mother. Enjoy your weekend!
