Tall Square Etui SAL

It’s three weeks since I last showed you my Tall Square Etui, I’ve made pretty good progress, so I’m almost ready for a mini happy dance! This is a design by Betsy Morgan which is in the Classic Inspirations magasine, though I’m using my own choice of threads. Each side represents a different season so I’m just going with colours I associate with the season.

Last time I showed you I had just finished the centre panel with the acorns on…DSC_0029 (2)

…three weeks on and I’ve finished the autumn side…Tall Year Square Etui

and I’ve almost finished the matching side for the thimble cube in the middle.DSC_0195 (2)

I wasn’t sure about the Autumn colours at first, but I love them now, rich and earthy!

I’m planning to take winter away with me next week and crack on with it, so hopefully there will be some progress next time.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
