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.

Radio Silence

I didn't fall off the face of the earth. I went to the mountains (Weaverville, NC, just outside of Asheville) to take a class from Jackie du Plessis, sponsored by Sassy Jack's.

As you know, I am a total fangirl when it comes to Jackie's classes. Totally. And this is another of her completely unique projects.

Soft, soft colors, little accessories for stitching, a precious holder--what could be better?

And I stitched a little:

This will be the scissors fob, once I get one more leaf stitched.

It was so good to see people I see only at events like this. I shared a table with one of my favorite people--normally we are not allowed to sit next to each other because we have some problems behaving with decorum--so I had a great time in class with her. We met a couple of ladies we know from being in the same FB groups, and it's always nice to put faces with names.

Kim from Sassy Jack's was a lovely hostess, and I'm looking forward to going back for more classes. 

And, it never fails. I go to an event like this, and all I want to do when I get home is stitch. And that is exactly what I'm planning to do as soon as I hit publish. The dust bunnies can wait.
