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.

Finishing Friday

 Yesterday, the notification  for this year's ornament from Barbara Jackson through Shining Needle Society popped into my inbox.

Well, of course I had to order it, and then I thought it would likely be a very good idea to assemble her Christmas is Coming Etui before the ornament kit arrived. So I got a start last night.

So that leaves the needle book and the tray that holds everything. I need to read through the finishing directions again.

And, who knows? This may precipitate a flurry of finishing.

Don't hold your breath.


  1. Great finish , a sweet design .
    Enjoy your weekend .

  2. Two or three times a year I set aside a whole month devoted to finishing. Once I set up the iron, cutting board, craft knives, rotary cutter, mounting boards, interfacings, fabrics (you get the idea!), it is easier to complete a bunch of FFOs. I'm usually amazed at the amount of projects moved to the finished pile. Linda E.
