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.

Here and There

 I did a little jumping around today.

First I added some rows to the Stitcher's Envelope:

Then I sewed the front and back panels for the bottle holder for Ode to their linings.

Now I need to add Hedebo edgings to the top and bottom of each panel. And this is going to take some time.

For some reason, I cannot keep the Hedebo stitch in my head. I've done it a number of times previously. Usually, once I've done a stitch, it will come back to me fairly easily. Hedebo, not so much. I think it's just enough like buttonhole for that to interfere. So, before I go any further, I'll be looking for diagrams and doing a few practice stitches before tackling the edgings.

And I know, full well, that I'll have to go through the same process the next time I have to add Hedebo knots to a project.


  1. Your stitching looks so beautiful, I enjoy watching your progress.

  2. I have hedebo "block" too....mine always twist no matter how careful I am and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. If you ever figure out a secret, please let me know! You're stitching looks wonderful!

  3. I agree with you and Stasi... complete Hedebo block. Unless Jackie is standing right there telling me what to do! ;)
