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.

Before I turn the scrolls

The flowers are finally filled in on this side:

So now I can turn the scroll bars and start on the lower part of the freehand embroidery. Except . . . I do believe I will fill in the rest of the saw tooth border, mainly because I'm in the mood for something simple and rhythmic to work on.

I'm enjoying the surface embroidery, by the way. After all the years I've done counted thread on linen or canvas or congress cloth, I'm as surprised as anyone by this change. But change is supposed to be good, so I'm going to embrace it.

At least, I'll embrace this change . . .
