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.

Santa Claus is Coming!

 Well, actually, he has arrived, at least in the form of this year's ornament from Barbara Jackson for Shining Needle Society.

Now, I was planning to put the tray for Barbara's Etui together. Actually, I planned to start that yesterday, but it took me longer to clear things from the Tudor project away than I expected. I had to add the leftover threads and metals to the stash for future projects. I needed to clear out the project bag and decide what I wanted to keep and what I needed to let go. 

And then I got distracted by the stash while I was doing all that.

I need to stop making lists of things I want to stitch and just stitch it. All of it.

Anyway, I had decided to work on assembling this morning, but my old workplace requested some product testing, so instead of working on my stuff, I started working on theirs.

Tonight, though, I believe I need to put at least a few stitches into Santa.


  1. I absolutely love Santa's mustache ornament! Yes, stop making lists and pick up your needle! I can't believe how much stitching time I lose in planning, deciding, re-deciding, and making spreadsheets! 🤣
