No time like the present
Loose ends

One for me.

I designed this stitchery for a children's class but it didn't make the cut.  It was stitched on a scrap of Aida using a cheap sewing cotton that I found on a sales table for 20cents.  Just shows you, when you are stitching you should use good materials and thread.  I think this would have looked better on a piece of even weave linen.  I was going to just discard it but I like this little design, so it is for me.

There wasn't enough fabric for the back leaf so I had to improvise and used the same fabric I had selected for the lining.

If I keep looking at this design I might be able to make something else out of it.

It's turned out rather charmingly, even if it needed a bit of ingenuity!

I am using this all the time now and today it became a teaching aid. Who would have thought that could happen?
