I got most of the next letter done in the grand niece's name pillow. It is starting to look like it has too many colors but I think that will change. I don't know how much I can get done today.
I got most of the hydrangea done. I like how it looks. I may have missed a stitch or two, I have look it over using magnification to see if I have missed anything. Now the question is, how to I do the background and what color? I sort of like the 3D effect it has without background. I could make it into a small round pin or pendant. I want to do as little background as possible as I am lazy and easily bored.
There is talk of a new tutorial by Amy Mitten. I was hoping she would do a tutorial of her Mystery Mansion Etuii. But she won a needlework contest with a mermaid mirror that has accessories and has mentioned maybe teaching that. Whatever she offers, I'm game to try. I so enjoyed her Vierlande Winders Keeper. I am still tempted to sign up for the Friesland Winders Keeper even though I know how much work is involved. I have it in the back of my mind to ask Santa for it.
I took apart bookmark #2. I just didn't like the finishing. I had a piece of silk left from the Vierlande Winders Keeper and I restitched the bookmark using that. I took out the skirtex that was inside and just put iron-on interfacing on the back of the linen instead. I am much happier with it. Now I need to get off my lazy behind and do that woven edge with pearl cotton so that it will be totally finished.
I have to do some cleaning this week. Cleaning always cuts into my stitching time.
It is pizzas today for Dylan and me. Yum!
