Sewing from the Toronto trip

I made a little leaf enclosure for a USB stick I wanted to send to Peter, I think it came out rather well. I’m tempted to make a great many more little leaves like these and sew them to things. this picture really shows the pattern stuck in my head of late.

I am trying to get the purple outline out from the design so that it only shows the threads that have been overlaid and pinned down. I’m not sure what I’ll do with it, but it would make a cute cover for a notebook.

 

 

Finally finished my populous badge

I also finished my marshal badge, but I forgot to take a picture.

This has been many months in the making, don’t start with 28 count for your first counted work! It’s about an inch and a half across.

Yay for getting my competency on counted. Also got working knowledge in couching for the marshal badge. WooHoo! I’m now a journeyman!
