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.

Hyperactive Gnat

 I have had the attention span of a hyperactive gnat this week. I've been swapping out summer clothes for fall/winter, just in time to have 80+ degree days, so the swapping hasn't gone as well as I would like. Dearly Beloved has been a little under the weather, so I have been the hunter/gatherer (I've gone to the grocery store and the drug store for his meds).

But I have stitched a tiny little bit.

On Sampler Sunday, I stitched the basket at the bottom of the sampler and filled in more of the satin stitch on the border.

Then I finished the bud for the Tudor project. I have a terrible feeling that I'm going to run out of the gold Lizerine before I finish this piece, which makes me feel like I need to stitch faster. This is the same kind of logic that makes people drive faster if they think they're going to run out of gas, and likely to have as brilliant a result.

And, finally, I started the first part of Barbara Jackson's "Christmas is Coming" Etui.

I have absolutely no idea what I'll get into tonight. Maybe one of these, maybe something else . . . I do have choices.

And absolutely no attention span.
