I still have to put in her mouth. The front door is done! Yeah! I like the gnarled tree behind the Lady.
I think I can finish the house today. This is going to be a good top for the small box. After stitching this project, everything else I stitch will look huge and easy. I want to go back and work on A Case of Indian Ink just to see if that is easier now. It is over one on 35.
I did the finishing for Needle Nut. Wow. Isn't it cute? It looks way smaller now that it is done. This was a fun project and I got it for free playing bingo at the NG of MN reteat. Nifty. Of course I had to buy the threads.
I traced the bug from the Cabinet of Curiosities class on a scrap of 40 count. I going to find a gold Krenik thread to chain stitch the edge. The pattern I am imitating calls for "reverse chain stitch". Why make it harder than it has to be? Why not regular chain stitch? I am not decided if I'll try the reverse chain instead of the regular. It depends on how masochistic I am feeling.
I had another idea. After looking at the Cartouche for the October Retreat, I thought of designing my own. I want to take a circle of flowers from the Sajou book I bought and find a scrolly "A" to put in it. I also have a circle design with needlework tools in it. That would be cute too. I have more ideas than time!
It is another beautiful day here. I wish I could bottle up this day and save it for January.
