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.

Catching Up

As I predicted, I did not thread a needle while I was away from home for a business trip.

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.
