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.

Puttering, Day Two

I had a few things I had thought about doing today, but I didn't. I slept late, had a leisurely breakfast, read for awhile, decided to waft a dust rag around the living room, and finally threaded a needle just a couple of hours ago.

I decided to take a day off from finishing and pulled out my travel project instead. Since I've done very little traveling this year--all the workshops I wanted to take have been cancelled--it hasn't seen any love.

The name of this project is A Chinese Imperial Yellow Queen Stitch Needlecase. The name is almost bigger than the project:

It was a class from Joanne Harvey.

I like Queen stitches. I like doing them, and I love the texture they create. I'm not so sure about the yellow--it is very yellow--but it is lively.

The only problem is that I think the strawberries look a little like radishes. I'm trying to get past that.


  1. Looks great ,lets hope things get back to normal soon.

  2. Puttering Day 2 sounded super. Your travel piece is looking good.
