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.

Flowers in a Pot

Much to my amazement, I managed to stitch the entire big pot of flowers.

Sharon shared some more information about Mary Ann with me. Mary Ann was about 9 years old when she stitched this sampler. When she was 21, she married--and over the next 17 years, she gave birth to nine children.

Nine children.

 I have a feeling that her stitching was limited to making and mending clothes for her brood.
