I am ready to hop on a plane and fly to Cincinnati! It is also the hottest day of the year. It used to be that people dressed up to fly on an airplane. I usually wear pants but today I may wear shorts for comfort and coolness. Nobody cares or will notice what I am wearing. Who will notice a lumpy old lady? Of course on the inside I am beautiful and have a sparkling personality.
I started working on the Hall of Justice down in the corner of Mute But Not Silent. I like the roof. The window went in fine and I really like the brick like look of the weaving over one. So far, so good.
I am trying the first of the sunflowers on the temari. It is rather crude and I am going to take it out, read the tips for stitching this and then try again. I've already realized some things I could improve on. This is way farther than I ever got trying to make a temari on my own.
I stitched most of the bird for the other side of the thimble purse. This is a French pattern and I don't know if I am doing it correctly. There are spaces in the middle of something (hightlights?) and lines that don't make sense to me. I may redo some of the shapes to make them more recognizable. Are they leaves and berries? Are they branches and blossoms? I think I need to define them for myself. The scale of the bird is way bigger than the scale of the design on the other side. I don't really care as you only see one side at a time. It is good to try out this bird before trying to stitch a bunch of them for the casket.
I skipped Step Class this morning to save my energy for sitting! I'm meeting my BFF at the airport in Cincinnati and we will have a blast!
