Done n Dusted

I did something with one of the pieces of 'fabric' we made the other month - yah!
in other news, my Mum is booking me into 2 classes for next year already :) one is a day in Dunedin with Alison Cole doing some gold work & the other class will be at her guild... or soon to be my new guild! Oh in case you missed the memo - I'm moving to Oamaru in December :)

Sometimes the hardest choice is making one

a minor detour to my project was had, but this only took me 3 days & then was posted off to the person who is putting loads of these together to create a larger display? I think, I dont really know the whole story, but happy to be distracted by something little that took very little brain effort (compared to my other project).
then back into the main project... the thimble holder - although I have only done the outside parts, there is still the lid lining to be done, but that has to be done on different materials & I haven't chosen that yet, so it will just have to wait.
Here are the top and base:

here is what the sides will be:

 And to give you an idea of size, here is the 3 pieces together
So now I have to decide the next pieces to do: Needlebook, Spool holder, or Tape Measure holder... I'm just not ready to face the Beaded thread counter or the Thread Cutter cover - yikes! Don't even think about the actual box!
