Slow



Okay, I'm slow to post today. It's all because I ran into an old friend at Panera. She is just the nicest person and has not aged a day in the last 20 years. We played soccer together in another life (when our kids were small).
The tour of my curio is complete but I thought of other stitching that I could show you from around my house and behind my sofa and in my closet. There is much more.
I worked on My Storybook yesterday and got most of the back done. I have a little of the border left to do. I started the name plate on the front but the floss isn't showing up very well so I will have to change it or use two strands.
I cut the mat board for Buttons and sewed some buttons on the front cover. Gorgeous! It is starting to look like a book. I don't have the buttons for the inside cover or the calicos page but I've decided I can go ahead and sew those together anyway and add the buttons as I find them - or buy them off of ebay.
I put in some nun stitches on Winter Cottage. The outside cover is all nunned. Now I am outlining the shapes on the front cover. It still doesn't look like anything yet.
My back feels fine today, thank goodness.

  1. Amy, You are certainly making good progress on your projects. I haven't put in even one stitch tonight and now it is almost time for bed. The Button book looks lovely
