Working My Way Down




I am working my way down on the English Tapestry Sewing Box. I finished my goal for yesterday. I got a big fat leaf done - and it was the last big fat leaf left to do. Then I got a bit done on two vines. When I get several vines done, I can do like four flowers at the same time. So my goal today is to get to the point where I am ready to stitch those flowers. Actually I would like to get the flowers done too. Hey, aim high.
I stitched on the Berry Thief companion just a bit. I want to get to the point of starting the bird. I like how that big strawberry turned out. On the pattern it is round, like a raspberry. I added a queen stitch here and there to make it more strawberry-shaped.
I plan to make potato salad today. If I am very ambitious, I'll make an apple pie too. It is a nice cool day here. It is quite a treat since we have had such a hot summer. It is finally comfortable to sit out on the back porch. Although, DH thinks it is cold.
The bathrooms are clean. All is well.
