I finished the the rose on the Double Pocket. It looks a lot more delicate than the over two rose.
I am still not sure whether I must take out the first "v" that I put in. Now I have to study the directions to see what to do next.
I put in some more vines and a pomegranate on the crest. I like how this looks. Now to find a worthy box to put it on.
Then I started the sides for the small box. It is going well. I am getting used to 40 count.
The retreat person wanted to know if we want to substitute 36 count linen in our kits for the retreat. I told her I did. It sort of feels like deceptive advertising. When I signed up for this project, it was described as on 36 - which was a stretch but I thought I could handle it. I bet other people feel the same way.
I wrapped the temari ball to just barely the correct size and now I can start the guidelines. Since it has been a while since I started all this, I forget just how to do those lines. So I have to go back and read what I should do. But I'm glad to have made some progress.
I also read a bit in my book. I want to read a little bit everyday but it seems I never get around to it. I always run out of time. At 11 p.m., I say to myself, "Well, I guess I have to quit." I am so lucky to get to do what I want.
