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.

Pretty Stuff

Hi. My name is Ann. I am a thread addict.

But when the threads are this pretty, who wouldn't be?

 I took advantage of Tricia Nguyen's opening her Thistle Threads shop to add some wired silk and another spool of gold twist to the inventory. I'm playing with flowers for the big casket and this is part of that experiment.

I am SO going to love my retirement!

Three more days . . . 


  1. I retired 3/31/2021 and I'm loving it!! I've lost nearly 20 lbs since retiring and sleeping a lot better. Stitching this month has been very limited, I'm getting to know my new grand baby. You will love turning off the alarm.

  2. You'll be retired at the end of this week? Good for you! For some reason, I was thinking it would be a lot later in the year. Anyway, congratulations!

  3. What lovely threads you picked up, Ann! Yay on the upcoming retirement!

  4. You are going to love the future , and play with your threads.
