I just finished up stitching the pocket to the main piece of Friesland. I'm not sure what comes next. I think reinforcing the eyelets. It's so funny. One thing I have learned from reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up is that it benefits you to know what you have. That was reinforced this week when I went looking for a micro pen to draw a cutting line for the thread winder inserts on Friesland. The micro pen I was using was running out of juice and I knew that I had more pens somewhere. When I went looking, I didn't find any micro pens, but I found this.
I had to laugh as I remembered reading about this kind of pen on somebody's blog. I thought, hey, next time I'm in JoAnn's, I'll look for one of those. And I actually did look for one next time I was there but didn't find any. Then come to find out, I already had one! I used it to draw the inserts' cutting line. Then I fused the two sides together with my iron. The line disappeared. Evidently that is how you get rid of the line. So when it came time to sew on the pocket sections, I used the Frixon pen to draw the sewing lines. I haven't iron out all of the lines yet.
Anyway, the pocket is all attached. Yeah!
I also finished stitching the second side (back) to Drawn Thread's Pastoral pocket. It feels so good to make progress.
Now I have started the last side. I've been waiting to do that robin. He (she?) is so cute.
I saw the next part of Shepherd's Fold on the Shepherd's Bush site this morning. It is a needleroll. I have a collection of Shepherd's Bush needlerolls. This will be fun to stitch. They have been mailed too. Cool. Can't wait to get mine.
Two weeks from today I go to Arizona. Nifty!
