Scissors, pincushion, lid. What else do I need?
I will have to invent a needle holder and a thimble holder - something small - and then this long-dreamed-of etui might be considered almost finished. This tin is not a Pandora's box and with limited capacity it will not hold a tape measure as well as a strawberry and a tiny biscornu.
I do like the black strawberry with its gold "seeds". I have been saving this teeny tiny pair of scissors for this project. I'm thinking of covering the yellow tip protector with black ultrasuede - we shall see. That may be too difficult and I'll need to live with the yellow.
What have I learned from this adventure?
- I have no passion for designing.
- I would not choose blackwork as my favourite stitching technique.
- I am never satisfied unless I can scientifically prove that something is completed perfectly and there is no method of objective evaluation for a self design :-)
