At my house today

Come join with me at my house today for the
The Naxos Necessaire is finish-finished!
So a few photos to show off







I learned a few new techniques with this including how to make a small detached buttonhole stitch button which the tutor assured us would be unobtrusive enough to allow the splendour of the stitching to shine forth.  Huh?  A year after the class and I managed to finish-finish this and to feel happy with it.   Now all I need to do is to find a place in the cabinet for this.   Shall I displace Grandma's Royal Doulton bowl or the HD3QBEM's wedding present tea set???

  6. This is a stunning piece, you should be very proud of it. As you said, the pre-stitching preparation was worth doing properly, every wobbly line would really show!
