Getting Ready

I enjoyed finishing the guild kit yesterday. I think it turned out so cute. I started on the finishing of the English Tapestry Sewing Box. I picked the lazy way. I sewed the linen to the lining on the sewing machine as much as I could. I have turned all the pieces right side out and now have to whip stitch the openings. Then I have to hand sew the sides to the main part of the box. If I were really ambitious, I would have stitched a design on the sides and the bottom. But I was sick of going over one. So it is what it is.
I finished stitching the back of the Berry Thief companion. I stitched the same design that was on the front. So now it needs finishing too. I read the finishing instructions and they are pretty straight forward. Jackie DuPlessis is an expert finisher and is clever in her finishing designs. I think it will be easy to finish this one.
I still have to finish the Holly and Ivy ornament too.
But who knows how much I will get done today since I have to get ready for my trip. I see laundry, ironing and packing in the works for today. Also, I haven't kitted anything up yet. I can't possibly go anywhere without some stitching to do. The leaves are starting to turn color here. I'm not ready to see summer go!
