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.

Progress report

I was getting ready to turn the scroll rods on my Carmen frame, and decided I wanted to see what I've done.

This is the body.

And the outer handle with the inner handle.

And the bottom of the interior of the body with the two pieces that make the removable tray.

My gracious, this is more stitching than I thought. And there's a little bit more. I need to stitch the panels that constitute the inner structure of the carrier and the appliqu├ęd pin cushion, plus the pin cube. Then I think I'll have everything embroidered and it will be time to assemble everything.

I'm leaving for Williamsburg at the end of the week. Do you suppose I might have time to get it put together before I leave? Maybe if I don't sleep . . . 


  1. Wow Ann you have been stitching allot . All so Beautiful .
    I have been cleaning up after 3 yes 3 storms over 100 mph storms.
    We are out this morning and will have lunch out .
    Enjoy your day.

  2. This is looking fabulous, Ann. Enjoy your time in Williamsburg.

  3. Ann, I am taking this class in June and wondered what size your scrolls were so that I could take some with me. I just love your stitching and that made the class a "yes" for me. Thanks.
