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.

Memorial Day

I hope everyone had the Memorial Day you wanted today. Ours was quiet, but we've gotten used to that over the last fifteen months. There was some mention of hamburgers on the grill, but then we decided we would be just as happy with the pizza in the freezer. So that was our celebration.

I had meant to blog every day in May as part of Maynia. I realized I hadn't blogged yesterday at about 3 a.m. this morning. Best laid plans . . . but not much to report on the stitching front. I did finish the framework for the rest of the motifs on the Queen stitch needle case I've been poking at for years, literally years:

At least I can tell exactly how much is left to stitch on this one. And, once again, I have been reminded of just how long it takes me to stitch anything. 

But, now that I'm retired, I do have an extra nine-plus hours a day to stitch, so my productivity should rise. I should be able to accomplish a few things in those additional hours!


  1. Your stitching is looking great ,I think that's the best way to stitch the back ground and then fill in .
    The sun is out here for another day so I will be outside all day almost finished planting all my plants .
    Hoping to get back stitching again then.
    Enjoy your day.

  2. Congrats to posting every day in May!

  3. Love that the framework is done. I did the same with a wool pocketbook full of bargello, the frame work makes you feel successful. And that extra 9'll be done in no time.
