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.

Misty Monday

 After one beautiful sunny day, it's back to gray and gloom. Our winters tend to be gray--no rain, no snow, just overcast skies--but I was hoping we could have a little more sun before the gray settled in.

However, my stitching this morning was very bright and sunny!

Gold Lizerine has been applied around the outer edges of the petal of the front facing blossom, and the first layer of silk has been stitched on the back facing blossom. And, again, there will be layers more to stitch on it before I go to the next major step. I'll start on those layers tomorrow.

And I realized I had forgotten to show the beginning of one of the side panels on "Christmas is Coming."

I have the strongest urge to sing, "our house is a very, very, very fine house" but this doesn't have two cats in the yard.

You have to be of a certain age to recognize that song. 


  1. Yes I know the song too ha.
    Lovely progress and looking beautiful.

  2. I read Gold lizerine as gold "listerine" Ha! Very pretty stitching, as usual. And yup, I know that song too.
