hiding...

...in the house.
It's pretty brisk out there ....-24C and the wind is blustery at 25kph ... that means it's ..uhm, .... cold.  Too cold to go out.  The snow isn't conducive to building snowmen anyway..

Pinned a silk backing to my pouch.
















Stitched around 3 sides and a portion of the fourth and then, turned it through that opening.  Now I need to close that opening by hand... stitch a portion of the folds closed and stitch all around the outside edges  ... buttonhole around the edges.... ... hmmm... still quite a bit of stitching to do really.  But... happy to get this done today and see how it is going to look... still haven't decided exactly where it will fold over... and..... it's a pretty large pouch...hahhahah...
















The back in this folded configuration.... who knows if it will stay like this... maybe it could even be overlapped and have buttons or toggles or ties.... We'll see.

That is the coolest piece of lace stitchery.

Best to stay in. I heard that winter is going to last till next winter... at least that's what it looks like around here.. I think you will have to start stitching big thick parkas.

Nice to stay inside and produce something beautiful like that :D)

We are so lucky to be able to while away our time when it's so cold outside with our stitching. Looks like you've been having fun!
