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.

Second Day of Ode finishing

 And after a second day of finishing, I have the bottom panel, the lid panel, and the opening tab assembled and attached to the desk:

Jackie has made a frame available that can be used for the sampler that fits on the bottom of the desk. I was tempted--I think this is one of the prettiest pieces she has designed. Then I thought about it, and decided I like having it in the bottom of the desk. It's like a surprise every time I open the top.


  1. Beautiful, Ann! I like the sampler in the box too....for the same reason! I was just thinking about pulling this out to start on the smalls before I forget what I learned in class.

  2. Just beautiful , love it .
    Enjoy your day.
