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.

December? Seriously?

 How did it get to be December? Already?

We are planning to put the tree up today. We were planning to do it yesterday, but then Dearly Beloved decided today would be better. I am not sure why today was better, but as he is the tree wrangler, I don't question.

Meanwhile, I have stitched this week's class assignment for my online whitework class. As it is a gloomy day, the photos I took just look like white blobs. I will try again when I have sunlight.

However, I have been working on Love That Red in the evenings, and this is where I am:

The darning patterns were addictive to stitch--hard to put them down--and the horizontal bands of stitch samples are proving to be the same. And then there are 28 (I think) bands of drawn-thread patterns, which I think will also be hard to stop.

But today we are decking the halls--or at least the Christmas tree.

  1. This red sampler is looking fantastic. And if you haven't heard yet, the shop in Williamsburg opened on Nov. 30th.
