I may have made up for it yesterday.
The Fair Maiden Etui now has a drawer:
It also has tassels and cords.
What it needs now is a top and a handle with embellishments. That may be today's task.
And why am I so motivated to finish this project?
The finishing directions for Briar Rose have been posted, and the scrims to adorn it arrived while I was away. And I would like to get one project off my work surface (aka kitchen table) before I put another one on it.
