Sometimes you have to get the boring stuff out of the way before you can do the fun stuff.
On the accessories for the Stitcher's Envelope, that's the Nun stitch. All of them are outlined in Nun stitch.
I do not enjoy working Nun stitch.
On the scissors sheath, I stitched the design almost all the way, then did the Nun around it, then finished the design. I've decided I'm going to work the Nun stitch first for the rest of the pieces. Otherwise, they won't get done in a timely manner, meaning any time soon, or perhaps even in this decade. Lesser things have derailed projects.
So, this is where I've started. And will continue. And I am liable to be cranky, so I beg forgiveness in advance.
Of course, tomorrow is Sampler Sunday, so I'll have an excuse to
procrastinate schedule the other sections for later in the week.
