My right sacroiliac has been bothering me since Saturday. The chiropractor hasn't been in until today. Now I am fixed and can quit complaining already. It is amazing what a few whacks with a little rubber hammer can do. I have had a lot of help from a heating pad as well. But now I am back to normal. I took down the Christmas tree yesterday. It is nice to have things back to usual. We still have some caramel corn hanging around.
I am proud of myself for working on the leaves of the Trevelyon Holly ornament until they were done.
Now I am working on the berries with the Trellis stitch. The berries look raised and bumpy. I'm not sure I am doing it right but it looks okay.
I've decided this is going to be the back of the ornament. The front will be stitched much more competently I'm sure. I don't have the gold laying thread yet so I have to quit once I get the leaves and berries done.
I stitched the ugliest bead ever yesterday.
It really is hideous. Why those colors? Why leave the inside shapes unstitched? Then I got to thinking, hey, we didn't make the bead that is pictured for the class. That's bait and switch! I am trying to decide how best to complain, er I mean, ask about it. Or do I just try it on my own? It isn't that hard and I can do it. It is just irritating that you sign up for a class based on a photo of a bead that isn't included in the class. No fair. I tried fixing the Jessica stitch on one of the beads and it looks much better.
I'm actually glad to have learned how to make a Jessica stitch that looks continuous.
I see lots of projects that I have abandoned last year. I want to finish some of them up. So I'll locate some of my UFO's and give them some attention.
