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.

almost . . .

Here is Pocket for Posies, nestled in its carrier:

And an inside view:

I need a snap to hold it shut, which will require a trip to a fabric store since I want to get one of the clear plastic ones. However, for all intents and purposes, I'm calling it done.

There are things I would do differently if I were going to do it again--like maybe put skirtex in the bottom as well as on the sides to give it a little more body--but overall, I'm pleased. I did find a thimble in the stash that would work, with some persuasion.

Today is organization day--I need to put away the instructions and leftover threads from several completed projects, and I have the print-outs from some of the online classes I'm taking to put in their notebooks, and I need to do a little bit of housekeeping.  I think I may start on the side piece for Fair Maiden later.

Or I could start on the side piece for Fair Maiden now and do the other stuff later.


  1. This looks wonderful!! Great finishing job.

  2. It looks fabulous Ann! I'm headed to JoAnn's now; wish I could pick up that snap for you. I would stitch - the clean-up will still be there later!
