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.

Mountain Grows Higher

The mountain of projects in the finishing basket just grew higher.

I finished the last part of the Tasmanian Needle Tidy last night.

This is a pocket that fits inside the Tidy.

I would really love to say I was going to assemble this immediately. However, this is Prep Day for The Procedure I have to undergo tomorrow. I am not sure that even attempting to thread a needle--much less pull out the rotary cutter, a danger on "normal" days--would be a brilliant idea. And, depending on ensuing events, there may be radio silence for a day or so.

I understand that medical procedures become more and more necessary as one slides into ones Golden Years--but they certainly do tarnish them!


  1. I find it disconcerting to get the reminders at 67 that my life is finite. Lovely stitching as always, and best wishes on the exam.

  2. All the best for tomorrow .
    Love your needle work pocket.

  3. Sweet finish! Hoping everything went well with your procedure.
