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.

Second Verse, same as the first

 And here's the other half of the second panel on Carmen's Etui.

Looks just like the first half,  doesn't it . . . 

That big open space in the middle will have a separate pin pad attached to it eventually. Meanwhile, I can turn the scroll bars and start on the panel that will make the bottom of the carrier.

I felt like I was making fantastic progress, but then I realized I have to do the bottom panel, the two side panels for the other side, the side pieces/handle, the lining for the bottom, the tray that fits into the bottom, the supports for the sides, the pin pad that fits into this side, a pin cube--and then I have to assemble the whole thing, plus the pin cushion and scissors fob I've already stitched.

I'm exhausted just thinking about it.


  1. Again beautiful stitching ,sounds complex .
    Looking forward to the finish in the future .

  2. Oh Ann, you've made a lot of progress already. Rome wasn't built in a day and neither are JDP pieces LOL.

  3. Just keep stitching, just keep stitching. Ha ha. Looks great and can see progress. There will always be more to stitch.
