I got the biggest piece of the Spring Fling Friday night project all done. I like it. I couldn't help but change it a bit here and there. I opted to put long arm cross stitch around the edge instead of the nun's stitch. I happen to hear from Jane and she asked what the edge was on my Button Lover's Brag Book. It was long armed cross stitch on each edge whipped together. I like how that looks. In fact, long armed cross stitch is one of my favorite stitches. I love how it looks braided. So that's what I put around the edge. I can't just cut the material off though, it will have to be folded to the back.
I put panes in the windows. I changed the thread used for the heart - and forget those stupid smyrnas. Also, my little bird is blue. Like the bluebird of happiness.
Now I am working on the last piece for Spring Fling. I think it goes inside the box and has our initials on it. I though about putting my first name on it as it has three letters. But I think I will go with the initials.
Hey, Spring Fling starts one month from today. It will be lots of fun.
We enjoyed going out to eat last night and I have enough left over for dinner tonight. I had a rootbeer float for dessert. Yum. Here are my flowers.
