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.

Downright Rebellious

 When I go off the reservation, I really go all the way.

There are supposed to be wallabies on this band of the Tasmanian Needle Tidy.

You may notice that there are flowers instead.

I have nothing against wallabies. I have no particular fondness for them, either. You could consider me wallaby-neutral. And I felt that the overall feeling of this project fits in with the 16th/17th century designs I love--so I repeated the flower motifs.

I believe this is the last of my rebellion for awhile. I'd like to finish working the background around the flowers tonight, then I have an appointment for my annual physical tomorrow. Once I make it through that ordeal, I have no idea what I'll be in the mood for.

Meanwhile, Happy Father's Day to both Dearly Beloved and The Big Kid.

And Happy Anniversary to Dearly Beloved. As of today, we have been married for 46 years. Neither of us is quite sure how that has happened, but we have accomplished it despite ourselves.


  1. It’s your piece, do as you wish. Love reading your posts. You remind me of me!

  2. Happy Anniversary! Love the flowers in your piece!
