One of my Jazzerbuddies took a pretty nasty fall during class a couple of weeks ago. She has no idea how she lost her footing, but she went down during the cardio portion of the workout and broke her ankle in three places. Required surgery no less. Luckily our class is in the same building as the Rescue Squad and they gallantly carried her to the ambulance and whisked her to a nearby hospital. I think the worst part for her is having to miss class for so long. Meanwhile, as all good stitchers would do, I made a little stitchy gift for her. The sampler for this little zippered case is from a freebie called "Tea Time" and you can find the pdf on Echevette's blog. My friend should have plenty of time for tea in the coming weeks. This is stitched on 36 count Edinburgh linen (and re-stitched, and re-stitched due to excessive frogging I might add).
These are the finishing fabrics I used. The blue is the back side of the case and the red is the lining:
Hope this brings a little cheer to an unfortunate situation.
