Mostly ramblings about two of my passions, needlearts (mostly cross stich and quilting) and my three pugs Molly Malone, Clancy O'Shay and Aoife Meadhbh MacKenna and the departure from my normal, the Black Labrador Retriever Isibeal Siofra.

Scissor Case Finis
I finished up my scissor case over the weekend. I'm very pleased with how it turned out. Two down and ?? to go. :-) I really don't know how many little treats are coming with our casket class (I have instructions for four or five at this point). I laced up the next one and started stitching - it's a little pin cushion. I'll take a photo the next time I work on it.
Here are my two little treasures together. These will have a home in the casket someday.
This is a set of hand made needlework tools I purchased from the UK. They are made of English Yew and are all hand turned. I'll need them for the stumpwork that I'm doing on the casket. Of course I don't know how to use them yet but that will come in the second 18 month course. I can't wait.
