~ A New Finish ~

I have just completed my latest project in my SAL with Sandra and here is how this finally ended up.

Here are our two different finished versions of....

Tricia Wilson Nguyen -
"Victorian Card Case".

I added the tassel as I thought it added a bit of Victorian elegance and also made some little cards just because :))

Sandra made a beautiful button for her version and used slightly different colours. I always love to see how the two different versions turn out.

So another addition to my 'cake stand' and in Sandra's case...her beautiful sewing treasures cabinet. I must ask her if she will allow me to show you some photos of that one day. I have to say if she agrees, you will be in for a treat!!

  1. These are both beautiful, congrats on the lovely finishing work too. CJ ok;-)

  2. Both of you did a perfect job :)
    Beautiful pochets! :)

  3. We are certainly making ourselves some lovely treasures Chrissie, and I'm sure neither of us would have had the confidence to 'go it alone', so thanks for your help and encouragement.

  4. More delightful finishes from the two of you! They're both so well made. I love the little cards you added to yours, Chrissie.

    Happy belated birthday too. Hope you had a wonderful time!!

  5. Both of you have made a gorgeous job of your little cases - they are so very pretty :)

  6. I've already admired Sandra's card case in her album but nice to see the two different versions side by side.
    I love how you finished yours with the tassel and those little flower cards are the perfect finishing touch.
    You and Sandra are a dynamic stitching duo. I get great pleasure from seeing what you make.

  7. Hi Chrissie,

    I don't know why I've missed some of your blog posts but am catching up now!

    First, a belated Happy 60th to you! I agree with you about Oscar W's quote. I think it's quite funny. Was he being satirical I wonder?

    Anyway, I see you are Sandra have been making lots of wonderful treasures. I just adore the latest one - very beautiful and useful too!

  8. Oh Chrissie, what a lovely finish. It is just beautiful!

    Sandra's cabinet sounds wonderful, I hope she will share it with us.

  9. Both cases are gorgeous, congratulations

  10. Chrissie, each and every time I come here to see another of your lovely creations, I want to get out my needles and thread but I always get distracted with something else. Hopefully when I have winter I will take the time to produce something pretty.

  11. Another terrific double finish for the two of you. Lovely work!

  12. Chrissie...
    Hoping your birthday was everything you'd hope it would be...
