I got one more thistle stitched and worked my way over to the crown. That was when I realized that the crown is all worked over one. But hey, I like crowns so much that I don't even care! I would like to get this band half done today but that is asking a lot. We'll see. . .
The Traveler is so almost done. I finished stitching the inside pocket and sewed it on.
Then I started sewing the two panels together. It went pretty well but it is fiddly. I'm so glad I have a handy dandy pair of pliers to help.
But the question remains, where do the magnets go? I vaguely remember something about them holding the scissors in. I think the purse needs a little help staying more or less closed. I like the handles on the inside instead of the outside.
I tried using the ribbon to hold the little spools but it sags a bit and I couldn't get it to go through the small hole in the side.
I think I'll use pearl cotton and a bead instead and maybe put a ribbon bow on each side.
It is still frigid here. Minus six this morning. We are hoping for a 40 degree day on Tuesday. It was fun to peruse the Attic's latest newsletter today. I am hoping to see some posts about the Nashville market also. I more that just a snipet of those With Thy Needle and Thread designs.
