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.

Life gets in the way

 I truly thought I would have this teeny portrait finished and finish-finished by today, but life got in the way.

I had a meeting this morning, and a doctor's appointment this afternoon, and things I had to do at home yesterday. And all those things kept me from stitching.

But I have accomplished this much:

It's teeny. That's a size 28 needle above her, if you want a way to determine the size. However, it is tent over one on 40 count linen, so there are a lot of stitches in that small space.

Hopefully tomorrow will see her all done--unless, of course, life gets in the way again.


  1. Gosh Ann it's beautiful , I stitched on 40 count on a box once .
    I liked it but my eyes did not ha.
    When I retired I thought I will do loads of needle work , but there is always something getting in the way.
    I am happy if I get a hour in for stitching each day .
    Enjoy your beautiful stitch .

  2. This is going to be so pretty….and since I am a month behind I bet you are finished by now.
