And here is my status of Shakespeare's Peddler KEYS. I am not even sure I add any stitches since my last photo 10 days ago.
Last but surely not least my now completed Etui. What will a I do with? What's it for? I have been asked both questions. Well, I might consider putting it under glass and what's it for.......to marvel at that I accomplished it! The finishing touches were some of the hardest. I just didn't seem to have enough hands to hold it and manipulate in to the proper hold while I stitched the top. I had a brilliant idea to create a hinge by using bugle beads but alas my completion did not match my vision.
I attached the ribbons by making a loop and threading a bugle bead into the loop and attached the bead to the lining. I am pleased with my solution.
Through all of this, the rubber band and my clip-on cheaters became my loyal assistants!
