A Townhouse Sewing Case (68)

This is definitely one of my all time favorites, A Townhouse Sewing Case by Gay Ann Rogers, but I can't remember how I got it. It could have been a class through the Shining Needle Society or through Gay Ann herself. I can't find the charts/instructions and the ole memory "ain't what it used to be". I did have it in my records that I stitched it in 2009. I used Vicki Clayton silks for this and stitched it in 28 count linen rather than congress cloth. I added the pink JABCO buttons as closures and a bone bodkin, silver awl and scissors as my "treasures". I did a regular nun stitch around the house but did Gay's version around the inside pockets. This reminds me of a house on Rainbow Row in Charleston, SC.
