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.

Little things

 I finally managed to stitch the scissors fob for the Christmas Spirit etui.  I do like figuring out double running patterns, but I don't think I worked any two of the leaves the same way.

This leaves only the needle book to stitch, and it's been started, so I hope to get it done this week.

I was trying to decide what to stitch in the evenings after work when this project is complete, so I tottered upstairs to rummage in the stash for a bit. And I discovered a bag of small projects that have been aging since the last century. There are a couple that need just a little more stitching to complete, and three or four more that need to be put together.

So . . . the ones that need to be assembled are now in the pile by the chair to be finish-finished, and the ones that need stitching are in that pile.  I seem to be adding to those piles rather than subtracting from them.

I do not think I will have a problem with boredom when I retire.


  1. More beautiful stitching .
    It's great to be able to have a pile or a box full like myself to pull out when you need to .
    Enjoy your week.

  2. I can't wait to see what all you accomplish once you retire!!!!

  3. I have a feeling those piles will grow even more when you retire! So many projects; never enough time, haha:D
