I am old enough (and so are my clothes!) that I just throw everything together in the washer. I confess that I threw in Mr. Snowman too. Don't worry - he survived. He washed up nicely and I ironed him. He looks much better now. I have to find some fabric to finish him. I think maybe something "snowy" in blue and white. I have to look through my stash and see if I have anything. I finished a stocking for my niece in blue and white and sparkly material so I probably have some left over.
I must have been on a finishing kick yesterday. Sometimes I have to mull things over in my head for a few days before I am ready to act. I decided how to finish the little slipper. I glued the top to mat board. Then I glued the wool to the mat board. I found just the right color of rick rack and am going to glue it on the top edge. Then I made some twisted cording and I am going to glue it around the edge. Then it will be done-done.
I also sewed together one of the stitched-on-a-plane strawberries. I am still deciding how to do the leaves. The pattern has a spider web in green on top but I don't like that look so I cut some shapes out of green wool. I haven't got it exactly right yet. But I will get there.
I am working on "L" on Beautiful. Three more letters and I will reach the other side. That's progress.
I decided to change the bottom stitch on Briar Rose. I used a long arm cross instead of cross stitching over one. Why make things hard when you don't need to? I looked up some other overdyed pinks to make flowers out of.
I put in just a few stitches in Mute But not Silent.
So the goals for today are:
Finish three more letters on Beautiful
Work on the bottom corners of Mute But Not Silent
Try a new pink on Briar Rose
Get the guide lines on the next sunflower on Temari #1
Stay calm and carry on.
