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.

Strawberries for Mother's Day

 I may not have real strawberries, but I do have a couple of stitched ones:

I thought I might get the leaves worked as well, but I got a late start.  I stayed up past my bedtime last night, finishing the outlines of the panels for Bird in Hand. However, that may be just as well--I have to work the leaves in trellis stitch and I need to think about that a bit before I start. They're going to be worked around and around from outside to inside, so it may be like spiral trellis in a way. I think I may have to doodle a little.

Meanwhile, I have talked to son and daughter, daughter-in-law, and grandson today. It's been a lovely Mother's Day--and Dearly Beloved is cooking tonight! Perfect way to end the day . . . 


  1. Lovely progress , so happy you had a lovely Mothers day.
