Going out with a Bang!

Here's my last finish of 2008 and it's a biggie!

CA Wells - Pyramid Etui

I took the class through Hanging by a Thread in November 2004, it has sat in my workbag till November last year when I got it back into my rotation. I completed the stitching in July and have been working on the finishing ever since. To say I'm thrilled with it would be a massive understatement

every surface is stitched - I put 2004 for the class on the pincushion

Karoline, CONGRATULATIONS!! I have longed to take this class from CA for a very long time, because I think this etui is just about the neatest one in existence! Sadly, I've never been able to get anywhere CA is teaching, and she's never come here that I've know of. I'm jealous but so happy for you...what an accomplishment! =)

Karoline, that's amazingly gorgeous! I'm trying to get caught up on blog reading and saw that and just couldn't stop staring at it. So lovely. What a great way to end the year.
