surrender to stitching...

I promised Mum I would make her a case for her glasses…the one she has is scratching the lenses… so I surrendered to this over the last few days…

I drove a friend into town yesterday; a doctor’s appt, hairdresser’s appt, groceries and errands… so... I had quite a bit of time to sit and stitch! We did manage a nice lunch at the gallery and afternoon tea before we trekked home. Jan has just had an operation on her foot and like most of us; hates the temporary loss of wheels (being able to drive) and with that-her independence!



I don’t think I could add too many more stitches to this if I tried! I love the colours and frayed edges and the variegated threads! Now to sew it up with a lovely soft batting lining and find some sort of closure... I hope Mum likes it!

I *love* it. The colors are wonderful and the stitching adds life. If she doesn't like it...ahhemm...my birthday is coming up =-)

Your work is beautiful. Love your purses using the sari silks. I have just made several purses with silks, velvets and mohair (form our goats). You can see them on my blog. We live also on a small property down on the far south coast of NSW.
Heartfelt cheers.
