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.

Ain't No Sunshine

 We have had what feels like weeks and weeks of cloudy skies and afternoon thunderstorms. I haven't had my morning sun for stitching in days and days.

Yesterday I decided I couldn't face sewing dark linen with dark thread again, so Betsy Morgan's Tasmanian Needle Tidy came out of its project bag. I was in the mood for bright and cheerful colors, and this has those clear pastels that appeal to me--especially on a gloomy day.

I might try to finish this panel today, or I might cut out Mylar for finishing, or I might grab something else from the stack of project bags.  I'll see what I'm in the mood for when I plop into the wing chair for stitching time.


  1. Isn't it great to have options? Will I see you at SY in September?

  2. Looking wonderful ,you should keep stitching on this one .
    Light is bad here to some days .
    We get the sunset at the front of the house so hubby can't see our TV so he draws the curtains and I can't see my stitching !
    So I have to put my stitching light on .
