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.

Engineering, Phase II

Way back in March, I started working on the assembly of the Fair Maiden Etui.  I did OK at first, then had a major measuring malfunction, and then allowed myself to be distracted by other things that would also need assembly.

Today I said to myself that I really need to get some of these lovely things put together so I could actually enjoy them.

The pieces for Fair Maiden were still strewn about my finishing table, and I decided it was time to pull up my Granny panties and get something done.

So here is today's accomplishment:

I'm trying to figure out how to ease that ripple in the silk out a bit, and I am not even halfway through with the finishing, but I think I'm going to find something small and easy to do to stitch on for a bit.  And it's going to be something I don't have to put together!
