One and a Half to Go

That's how many eyelets I have left to do:  one and a half.  Yeah!  I can finish those today.

The next step (I think) is the edging.  I have totally forgotten how to do that so I'll have to study the directions.  It involves Amy's special tool and a chair.

I finished stitching Drawn Thread's Pastoral pocket.  Happy dance!  I sewed on the button and trimmed up the pocket.

I don't really like the lettering font of "her work"  but whatever.  It is in desparate need of ironing.
It will look a hundred percent better all nice and smooth.  I have to dig through my stash to find some lining fabric.  I want something that uses that dark blue/green color of the needle felt.  I don't know if I have anything.  It doesn't have to be dupioni silk.  Just a cotton will do.

I started packing for my trip next week.  I'm trying out a new suitcase that is hard sided.  I hope it works well.  I'm getting excited.
