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.

Fiddly, fiddly

 Why are the things that look the easiest always the most fiddly? 

This is the needle book for Ode, and I believe this is supposed to be Jane's profile. The piece is designed to look like a tiny volume--the front is about one inch wide and two inches high. I love little books, and this is adorable.  However, I do think I need to give it another good pressing before I can call it completely done.

I am trying to decide which accessory piece to put together next. There is a container that holds little bottles which I can fill with buttons. There is a pinkeep. There is a messenger bag that holds a spool of thread. There is an etui with a pocket and pin cushion--that last one is going to take some effort. And somewhere in this house, I have the scrims that go with the whole set, so that means a search-and-destroy mission to locate.

But tonight I have an EGA meeting, so all decisions are postponed until tomorrow.
