*Michelle is here in Philadelphia, and I'm afraid I hounded her until she agreed to meet. Jenna, Michelle, and I and Terry, Eric, and the dude (who does have a name) went to Jones. I made little gifts for them because, you know, I only put 10,000 things on my to-do list for August--I've got all the time in the world! But they were fun--good stitching for the commute.

Graziano linen cream/natural
All sorts of fiber substitutions
Finishing: ladder stitched edges, "stuffed" with foam core board, organza ribbon hanger (unfortunately it shows through the back I should have put batting on the foam core board, but you know, the craft room is in boxes in the basement).
How perfect is that fabric? I am so impressed with myself! (With the match, the finishing leaves something to be desired. There's too much white, and I wish I had time to make a nice blue cord. It really needed blue cord.)
Treasured Trio I
Unknown white evenweave.
Called for fibers.
Fabulous finishing fabric found at Joann's; white cord also purchased.
Finished as flat fold.
Edited to add: Duh, I had fun! It was really nice to meet Michelle and Eric and to see Jenna and Terry again. Jenna, we are totally taking you up on the offer!
