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.

One Ginormous Strawberry

 Well, the stitching is finished and it's going in the assembly pile:

I've gotta think about the construction for awhile. The directions are not very detailed,. There's one photo that just shows where the basting lines for the top go, and that's it, so I'm going to have to punt. 

But not today. Today I am collecting all the computer equipment and cords that came home with me so I could work from the corner of the living room. I want to get it turned in--another thing to check off the list of things to do before my last working day.

Only five days . . . WOO-HOO!!


  1. Wahoo! Five days to go! Congrats to you. I retired 01/10/2020 and haven’t looked back once.....and haven’t run out of things to do either. Have a great last week, tying up loose ends, saying so long.......

  2. Can't wait to see the finish .
    Enjoy your last week and look forward to the future.

  3. Just stunning! I love Barbara’s patterns and you’ve done a great job on it. Beautiful! And enjoy the retirement - after a little time away you’ll wonder how you ever had time to go to work! LOL!
