I finished the cover/bag for the stitch journal – something to carry it round in, and something to keep the sun off it now we’re heading for longer days.
It’s basically a quilted/lined tube with a circular base and a casing around the top for some hand-dyed ribbon to tie it closed. Initially I was a bit disappointed because it turned out bigger and bulkier than I intended, and the stitch journal rolls up quite small. And then I saw this:
I bought the large wooden bobbin some time ago with no real purpose in mind. But – what do you know – it fits the stitch journal cover *perfectly*. And furthermore, the stitch journal itself fits the bobbin *perfectly* if I hem the edges:
So the over-sized cover is actually exactly the right size, I have a purpose for a spare bobbin, and a permanent home for the stitch journal when it’s finished. I don’t know about you but I call that a roaring success. An accident for the most part, for which I can’t take much credit, but a success nevertheless.
So I’m taking this as a little life lesson: most things really do turn out OK in the end.

synchronicity is such a wonderful thing … and I continue to enjoy seeing your finely wrought stitching up close
Synchronicity is like magic. It delights me when this kind of thing happens
Serendipitous successes are still successes, and this is an absolute gem!
Ha, I’m happy to take any kind of win wherever I find it 🙂
Your subliminals obviously knew what they were doing. 😄
Ha, it would appear so! If only they could sort all my other problems 😆
