Yet another HD :)

Thanks to everyone for your comments on Earthdancer. She has waited so patiently for me to get her finished and I am so excited to see that finally happen its just beyond words :)

While this one hasn't been a HD in the making quite so long as Earthdancer I'm excited to see this one done just as well. This one will be framed with an hexagon mat in a square frame most likely. I have to make a trip to the frame shop and see which color mat will look best though as I will probably just use a simple frame as to not take away from the piece itself.

This is going to be one of my new starts once I gather all my fibers. It was in the Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly Winter 2005 issue. This is a case to hold sewing accessories. Thread as the picture shows will fit inside and then the sleeve on the top will hold a pair of scissors. I am thinking of using some of the thread in the picture but I have to pick up the fabric and see how everything will look together, I'm not so excited about the overdye, I think it needs to be a bit more subdued of shades but I do like either of the green ribbons for the accent. This is going to be a group project with one of the groups I meet with on Thursdays for sit and stitch. It will be interesting to see all the different colors that they each come up with for the design.

  1. Fine China came out wonderfully! Do you know how you plan to finish it off? I have often wondered how best to frame or otherwise finish off that cool shape.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
