Patterns of the Orient Goes on Vacation

Just finished the tiedowns on the lower right quadrant that has gold and blue trellising on top of red silk.  Not as hard as I had expected.  However, there were many anxious moments when I wasn't sure there would be enough blue Soie Perlee for the tiedowns.  It all worked out, though, as there is about a yard left and there are no more areas in the piece that call for it.  Whew! Dodged a bullet there.

But, Patterns has to go on hold for a while as I want to work on this stocking for our grand-daughter.  Isn't it the cutest thing???  Santa will be very busy making those dolls, their house, the cradle
and tea set.  I wonder what's in the unopened boxes.
