I got just a bit more done on the crown of the Edinburgh Etui.
Then I wanted something different. I was reminded of the Madras things designed by Jackie duPlessis. She is having a "Madras March" where she is selling some of her Madras kits. Well, I had started one of the Madras projects that was in Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly (Fall 2012).
It has been languishing in the corner of my sewing room on a frame. It was recommended to be done on a frame. Since it was 36 count linen over one mostly, I complied. But then I deserted this project and it has been in the corner for a very long time. Like years. Probably since the Fall of 2012. I decided that in my old age I can work it anyway I want. So I took it off the frame and worked on it in hand. I had the front done and the back was 3/4 done. I finished off the back border in pretty good time.
Hey, this is going well. So I wanted to start the next page but I couldn't find it (story of my life). It had become separated from the center of the magazine. So then I decided to start the pin keep. It is going well.
Then I found the missing pages (somebody upstairs likes me). I want to keep going on this as I really like the design. Jackie has just designed a carry-all for this. Cool. I ordered it. There is another matching project in Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly called Indian Ink Needlebook (Fall 2010). It has a scrim on the front that I am hoping to get.
The bathrooms are clean. The walking is done. Now to work on the pinkeep. Can I get it done by tomorrow? I bet I can.
