Just Nan's Scissors Roll is totally finished!! I put on the pearls.
I buttonhole stitched the wool to the linen and formed the scissors pocket using the leftover pearls.
I sewed on the snap and charm.
I worked some on Beautiful and finished the vine/flower row. I have a few letters left in the second alphabet and then there is a different vine - and different colors to choose for it. That will finish off the top third. So I'm making good progress.
Then I worked a bit on Briar Rose. Another rose finished and a couple more started. I feel like things are under control now.
Nancy D asked what I am finishing the Dutch piece into. It is going to open up and have two pockets on the inside. But I really want to add initials and/or year to the back. How can I leave all that linen on the back unstitched?
I want to finish the second bookmark too. But that means I have to do some stash diving to find a backing fabric then set up the woven edge. And I still have to do that pesky stitch that I missed. But that means finding the chart to look up the color. Sometimes I feel like I spend half my time trying to find something.
