So after exercise and about 7 trips around the walking track at the Y, I went to the fabric store to get stuff for Claire's busy book. I want to do a page a day. I've been thinking about the cover. I want to cut the top off a pair of jeans for the cover. But I have to see if, first of all, I have a pair of jeans to cut up and secondly, can I get a large enough flat piece of jean to use. Then the first page is peekaboo. I ironed freezer paper to muslin and cut it out so I could run it through my printer. It worked! So I think I'm going to use my muslin face but use the felt for the hands - unless it looks creepy.
It is going to be messy making this book as I have to dig into stash and find things.
I got some new directions for Mermaid Treasures. I am stitching on the stumpwork mermaid mirror part. I don't think I could do this if it didn't come in just small easy steps. Thanks to Amy Mitten's great instructions, I am doing fine. I started the cloud at the top. Doesn't look like much yet.
I finished Spring Jumble. I love it and want to frame it and hang it up. Maybe in my bathroom. I haven't gone looking for frames yet.
There is a new Needlework Nibble on Thistle Threads so of course I had to order it. It is called Lady Catherine's Slipper. Nifty.
