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.

Minor Whoopee

I am having a minor happy dance.

The base of the etui is assembled.

While I am not deliriously happy with the results, I am relieved to have this much completed, and I can say I have learned a few more things to improve my finishing in the future. That was the reason to take the class, so it's all good.

Now onward to the lid.


  1. I think you're being too hard on yourself. It looks gorgeous! Stand back and look at it as though someone else had stitched and assembled it. Then you can admire what you have accomplished. Good job.

  2. I agree with Needle Nicely. It looks wonderful and I can't wait to see the rest of it!

  3. ooOoo! It is gorgeous so far.

  4. Be proud girl!:):) It is gorgeous and also think about how many hours of work is put into this piece. Your casket looks stunning and lovely!
    Hugs and take care,
