I didn't make my goal yesterday.  I got distracted.  I picked up the cornflower from the Spring Casket Keepsakes.  I still have a ton of detached buttonhole petals to stitch for it.  I had just started lacing the measuring tape piece when  I noticed that I had a mistake so I took out what I had done and started again.  And again.  And again.  Now it is a challenge.  I will get this done if it kills me.  So I kept on it.  It isn't pretty or perfect but it is very close to being done.  Hopefully when the petals are attached you won't notice the edging.

Then I put a few stitches in the half doll.

Then I decided that I wanted to do the Jacob's ladder needlebook for the Toy Box.  I am almost done with one side.

 So I still need to finish the front.
Back to work


  1. WOW your cornflower is looking amazing regardless of the challenges it gave you. Great progress on all your wips. Especially the doll project - soooo pretty!
    love Annette

  2. You have a lot of stamina!
    Glad you finally got it, it looks good.
    The Doll is coming along nicely, and the Toy Box projects also.
