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.

Last Day at Jeannine's

Today was my last day at Jeannine's.  Tomorrow we head back to reality.

I'd rather stay here.

Anyway, today I totally, completely, and thoroughly completed one part of the class project.  I am taking home a finished item. This is nothing short of miraculous, considering that I started the morning by attempting to use a rotary cutter with the blade closed and could not get the very special glue dispenser to dispense without assistance.

However, I did succeed in making this:

This is a woven ribbon bodkin case.  You will note that it has a couple of bodkins in it already. And I will also mention that it's harder than it looks, which is why I was astonished to have it done.

Now I just have to make the purse it goes into along with all its friends.  I also need to make the friends.  However, today we will celebrate that I'm going home with a finished project.

And I would like to put in a plug for Sherri Jones of Patrick's Woods, who comes up with all these charming ideas and teaches them very well.  I'm looking forward to taking many more classes from both Sherri and Catherine Theron who were teachers at Jeannine's this year. They made it fun and challenging and enjoyable.


  1. WOO WHOO a finish to take home - love it!!

  2. That is beautiful, she always comes up with something different and interesting.
