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.

This may take awhile

 I've started filling in the background around the strawberries.

Tent over one is going to take some time, and time is something I won't have for the next week.

I am taking an online course on Tudor Embroidery, which has just started, and I need to get my homework done. There is also a zoom class to attend either Friday evening or Saturday midday.

EGA meets tomorrow evening.

My old workplace, from which I just retired four weeks ago, has asked me to do some product evaluations and pattern proofing and a wee bit of design work.  

And we are going to visit the Big Kid and The Flash next week.

I wasn't quite ready to have a schedule again, but it looks like I have one, at least for the next week to ten days.


  1. Your work is looking so beautiful , I love the look of the material and color, which one are you working on ?
    You sound like you are going to be so busy , but exciting have fun.

  2. Your work on this piece is lovely, as usual, Ann. Please tell me what the name of the design and the designer is.

    1. This was a class piece from Catherine Theron called A Stitcher's Envelope.

  3. Ann, you may be busier in "retirement" than you were in full-time employment!!

  4. After weeks of no obligations, this one has turned into a doozy!
