A Side and A Row

I just couldn’t do it. I couldn’t resist doing the surface stitching on the first side of the etui. I could not make myself stitch more border! I just had to see how it would look! I told myself, just the grapes. Then before I knew it I had done the whole side.

Now I can’t do more until I have done the next square of border. I hope I didn’t make a terrible mistake with my impatience, but this first side is quite pretty don’t you think? Each side is very different, almost like a whole sampler was cut up and built into a box. It is nice to just have snippets to work on too.

I also worked hard to complete another row on the Bargello Roll last week. Only one more red/blue row to go! And the next green and brown band is almost done. There is only one more (partial row) of those too then. This does move along nicely if I work on it consistently. Go figure.

  1. You won’t have done any harm filling in that first side, it would have to be sooner or later and I think that is the way I would work, that way, you don’t get too bored with the border. I do think Betsy’s projects work up quite quickly anyway as those designs with tiny motifs often too. The Bargello roll is looking fabulous too. Look forward to your next post.

  2. I can totally see why you couldn’t resist stitching just one side! Love the variegated thread you used in there.
