Well, I'm working on the dreaded detached buttonhole for the Spring Casket Keepsakes. I'm trying to get them done before the Summer ones get here and the on-line lessons start on Saturday. I've made some progress. Two and a half of four petals for the carnation are done.
My goal today is the get the other drawstring woven and to finish the third petal. I'd like to also get one of the cornflower petals couched and started but we'll see how it goes.
I have been working on the Edinburgh Reticule. The needlebook is done,
the scissors fob is done,
one side of the reticule is done and lined and beaded and tasseled.
I only have the second side to finish and I can put it all together.
I can see the end on this one. I made a change to the first side, I added two more stained glass rectangles. I like how it turned out. I'm am slightly altering the shape of the shamrocks on the other side.
There is just not enough time in the universe to stitch all I want to stitch. I was able to buy and download a digital copy of Inspirations Magazine #82 last night. Oh do I want to stitch two things that are in there.
I love the butterfly by Trish Burr and the Bluebird by Nicola Jarvis.
Oh may I live long enough.
