Today was a day spent crafting (and well spent). I've misplaced my camera, but I'll get pictures up as soon as I can.
I returned to the first pouch where all of this began. This was before I'd bother with measuring or anything, so the dimensions were worked by eye. I used plain brown flannel that I enjoy a great deal. Taking a piece of fabric that I had been using to practice the stitches from my new book, the encyclopedia of flowers (that might not be the exact name, I'll have to check), I pinned it to the pouch. I've decided to try and crazy quilt it onto the pouch. It's definitely going to pop!

It looks interesting!
The Red Rose necklace was completed today. The focal piece is red rose carved out of stone. I used a formal sort to set up brown beads and red beads, then loosened up as I went along. I like how it turned out.
I've picked up some more fabric & beads on my day off, so I plan on sitting down with them soon. Pictures to come!
