Miladys Little Quakers Ruler Pocket

Success!! The construction of the pocket over which I almost had palpitations is now almost complete - only a twisted cord to attach to finish the edge. But I can't resist a a photo at this stage. Do you like the lining fabric? I thought it went really well with the brass ruler. This was a fun stitch, a worrying construction and a very satisfying finish!!

I have started another piece- a gift for an unsupsecting friend. It is to be another Quaker Chicken Pincushion. These are a little addictive! I think this is the third or fourth that I have stitched but they are immensely rewarding and quite therapeutic.

Hope you are all well and stitching productively.
