So I have been trying to do some finishing as I wait for the coif to come back to be lined and made up. I don't want to start my Cabinet of Curiosities projects until the coif is finished. But this sweetbag is sort of a CofC project. I started it before the class began, but the tent stitch motif lesson inspired me to finish it - as I mentioned in my last post. I thought to do the background in faux silver but when I did a small test, I realized it would catch on everything and not wear well, so I did it is a light grey silk instead. I was especially happy with the cord and tassels I found to finish it with.
I picked up this pillow kit at our chapter silent auction. I made it for my SIL who loves to garden. It was really easy to stitch so I could watch TV and stitch with no problem.
