I finished off Lady Catherine's Slipper. I am happy with it. If you haven't done it, do not transfer the outside edge line. Mine shows a bit on one side. I knew I shouldn't have transferred it. It was good to get some experience working with the #9 gold thread.
I picked up a Just Nan kit that was on my sewing room floor. I get the automatic from Silver Needle for Just Nan's smalls this year. I made the bunny and gave it to Claire. This is the bee. It is nice to do something quick and easy after the impressionist's painting project. I am putting on the beads. I have to backstitch around the edge and I can put this baby together.
Just as I was looking up the finishing instructions for the slipper, I got notification that the next three lessons for Mermaid's Treasures was up. So when I feel brave I can do the grotto rocks for the mirror. It doesn't look too hard but it involves the trellis stitch. So we'll see how it goes.
I only got in about 800 steps yesterday waiting for my calf to heal. Today I went to exercise class and walked a mile. I am over 8200 so far. Big improvement! I'm so glad I can get back to walking.
