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.

Stinkin Cute

 What a surprise! The Post Office delivered a package today! On a holiday!

And it was a new project from Jackie du Plessis. It's called "Stinkin' Cute" and it is. A teeny, tiny wooden basket:

And it will become this:

I am soooooooo excited--I may be upstairs before the afternoon is over, looking for the correct scroll frames.

After all, it's Labor Day, and that still means a beginning for me. When I was in elementary school, the first day of school was the Tuesday after Labor Day (and the last day was the Friday before Memorial Day). I still have a strong urge to buy a new binder, and notebook paper, and a box of pencils when this time of year rolls around, even though decades have passed since then.

I am trying to be disciplined and finish a few more Phd's (projects half done), but oh, I am being so tempted!

I have a feeling temptation will win.


  1. You are not the only one that gets tempted, me too. hugs lynda ruth

  2. Oh how cute love it , I would have been tempted to.
    I always start a new kit in January .
    But I am tempted almost every day .
    Have fun and spoil yourself .

  3. Ann, I can see you are enjoying happy for you! I love the PHD referral..never heard that one before...I may "borrow" it! I too get excited this time of year and am tempted to but new pens, markers, crayons etc.. Now, at least, I can justify by saying it's for my grandkids! :)
