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.

blood, sweat, and tears

 All I needed to do was sew a circle of velvet to the Tudor project so I could transfer the design and get on with it.

This took way more time than it should have and I said words and combinations of words which frightened Dearly Beloved. I also stabbed myself--twice--with the sharp needle.

Silk velvet is slippery and wants to wiggle and this particular piece did not want to maintain a circular shape. Having beaten it into submission, I believe I will do something mindless for the rest of the day.

And for those wondering why I'm not in the kitchen flinging pots and pans around for the US Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow--ours is delayed until next week due to schedules, family issues, and a plethora of other things. So, tomorrow, Dearly Beloved and I will be enjoying lasagna, which has become our Thanksgiving tradition. Pot flinging will ensue next Friday.


  1. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
    Your making a lovely job of your beautiful work.
    Enjoy your day.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Ann!
