This is something I made for someone I admire- a politician who has been having a rough time of it lately. MT works for issues I deeply care about (namely child poverty and conservation in our fine land) and last year, when reading the newspaper, I saw a photo of her crocheting in Parliament.
Tom crosses paths with her through his job, and deduced that she didn't have a case in which to keep her handwork. So hopefully this will do the job. It's made from dark grey linen, red silk ribbon and this fabric for the lining. Free-form plant embroidery in white thread.
