You're probably thinking "what the heck is she thinking and what does it have to do with needlework???"
Satisfaction is finishing another UFO (Unfinished Object) albeit slowly like a snail. It gives me great satisfaction. I will think about the chosen project everyday and can't wait to get some precious time to slip away and work on it, however little. Case in point, this project: Gail Doane's "Liberty Trim Sewing Case". I have no idea when I took the class from Gail, maybe 2-3 years ago. I wanted something to work on while I was teaching at the SAGA Convention a few weeks ago especially since I had some extra time at the hotel for special events bookending the teaching. So I grabbed this one.
I set a goal of one flower a night, and just the flower. Slowly I crept through the 7 flowers. Then I set a goal of the stems and leaves. While at the EGA National Seminar I worked on the monogram and finished it after I came home.
I've worked everyday for the last four days on the case construction. I love the color choices in this kit, especially the floral Liberty Lawn.
The inside of the case has three zippered pockets and six small pockets. Plenty of room for my stitching essentials.
Here's the finished sewing case. It took lots of short spurts of time over many days, but it's done. Another UFO out of the box!
