finished effigy stays

My stays are finished! Yay for mindless handwork when you aren't feeling well. :>

Working on the stays in the airport... I didn't want to risk my favorite scissors so I played it safe by pre cutting and knotting thread and only bringing a handful of pins.

And the finished stays. Purple isn't really my color (yay for using The Stash (TM)) but I don't mind this shade too much, especially with the pink binding...

I agree on the value of having "mindless sewing" sometimes. I have a few small accessory projects that I'm trying to get to that stage to take on an upcoming vacation.

I am so jealous of your binding skills...those turn arounds at the top of the tabs especially.

As already noted by.. well EVERYONE (lol) that is a fabulous binding job.

By the way, for flights or situations where I don't want to bring scissors, I have a medalion sort of thing that is a thead cutter. I put it on a ribbon around my neck while I sew so it doesn't get lost. I love it.
