Tiger Finish

Despite all my best attempts to goof off, sort and resort stash, and play outside in the dirt I managed my first finish of the year so I could reduce that insane WIP pile by 1, the Tiger Lee purse insert.  I still have to trim it and put it in the purse but we can't rush these things, haha

As I said, the WIP list is out of control.  As I've now touched every piece of linen I own I'm quite sure there are no more hiding out so now we try to get the list down.  I dug out the Birds and Flowers Nantucket basket from my mom to see how much work was really left to do.

Sadly I can't find the pattern for any of the accessories that were intended to go with the basket but I've got all the finishing fabric, ribbons and other bits to make the lining so I guess it will have to do.

 The most of the work is done, the cross stitch anyway.  What is left is the edging on the top and bottom, mom nicely chose to start a Danish picot edge that I get to finish.  It moves along well enough so lets see if I can't knock this one out soon.
Thanks for reading
