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.

Prep work

I've been cutting out stuff that will be used to assemble the Virgin Queen etui. I now have little piles of materials in a state of organized chaos on my worktable.

I had plans to do some pressing and folding and mitering, but The Boot had other plans.  It announced that I had done quite enough, thank you very much, and it was time to prop up my aching ankle with an ice pack. So I have.


  1. I do like your choice of lining fabric - it will certainly give a different look to the finished wallet. It appears you're quite ready to make finishing progress - nice orderly sets...

    Ice packs are heaven - listen to the boot. (how's the knee doing?)

  2. Can't wait to see the finished project!!! But don't overdo!!!

  3. I so admire your ability to finish class pieces and then do the sewing and assembly finish as well. A quick perusal of my list of partially stitched and unfinished class pieces cries out for a diagnosis of severe stitcher's ADD.
