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.

Back in the Habit

 I am totally out of the habit of blogging.  However, I'm taking a week off from work. Right now, I have two goals:

  • Stitch something every day
  • blog about it
I did finish Barbara Jackson's Fair Flowers Sewing Basket this week.

I might need to trim the leaves on the big strawberry just a tad--or I may leave them.

That strawberry gave me fits, by the way. I was supposed to work the berries, choosing the shades of red randomly. I am so left-brained that random is not in my vocabulary. I was literally trying to chart out random, and if that's not a left-brain thing to do, I don't know what is.

I am very pleased, though, with the way it turned out, especially those happy, happy colors.  They make me smile every time I look at this.

Now I am going to plunge my hand into the basket by the wing chair and see what pops up first for this afternoon's stitching pleasure.


  1. I like your basket of strawberries. Sweet work. hugs

  2. Oh Ann love your stitching in the strawberries basket.
    Enjoy your week.

  3. Your basket finish looks fabulous, Ann. Can't wait to see what your hand pulls out next.

  4. Love your little basket, Ann. This is one of Barbara's that I do not have. Your work is impeccable.

  5. LOVE the basket! Beautiful work!
