Holly and Ivy



I sewed my English Tapestry Sewing Box back together. (Doesn't it look nice ironed?) I could have fiddled with it, worked a couple rows of backstitches and then whipped them together making a hand stitched solution. But in the end, I opted for the easy way out, I sewed it on my machine. I wanted to get the interfacing ironed on and the fastest way to fix it was to machine sew it. So I did. I have to get the perfect lining material. They make some William Morris reproductions prints and I would look for something like that. But I don't think I'll find a compatible print. I think I am going to end up with a fabric that is the right color(s) with a minimal design in it like stripes or dots.
I am very excited because I am about to take off for the Kindred Spirits Sampler Guild monthly meeting. I have to drive over a 100 miles. So that tells you how much I want to go. I will see some friends there and I am taking some "show and tell" stuff. I am looking forward to getting a kit made just for the guild that I paid for last month.
Yesterday I worked on and finished the Holly and Ivy ornament from Drawn Thread. There a couple of mistakes in it as I misread the chart. But it looks fine to me. It sure is nice to work on an easy quick project after that over one ETSB.
Not much stitching to be had today but lots of fun.
