Finishing




I must do some finishing today. I went to the fabric store and got some fabric for lining the English Tapestry Sewing Box. I can't believe how many ugly retro fabrics are out there. I like pretty fabric not ugly prints. Anyway, I finally found one that would do. I even went to the other fabric store in town just to make sure there wasn't anything better available. There wasn't. I guess my fabric is a funny color blue as it was really hard to find a compatible color. I looked at the dupioni silks as well but didn't find anything there either. I'd love to visit Delectable Mountain store sometime to see what glorious fabrics they have. I bet they would have the perfect one for my box. But I have never been to Vermont. I hope to go there next time I go to Celebrations in New Hampshire.
I finished stitching the kit I got on Sunday at the KSSG meeting. Fun! Now I have to finish it. I bought some wool felt to fill it with. I need to iron the ribbon and then I can hand sew it to the edge of the front and the back.
I went back and worked on the white flowers on the border of the Berry Thief companion.
I have to kit up some stuff to take with me on my trip Thursday. DH brought up the suitcases so we'll have to pack soon. It is supposed to turn colder today. Cooler would be nice. My camera just ran out of juice so I'll post some pictures later, after the battery has been recharged.
