I also finished the stitching part of Lady Catherine's Slipper. I tried fixing the curlique that didn't match the corresponding curlique. I discovered that the permanent marker line was under the stitching. After pressing it, the transfer line doesn't show up so much. I also took a string of linen and tried to weave it in so as to cover the transfer line. Right now, I can't even see it. So maybe it worked.
I am in the process of finishing the slipper. I have to put in some tufting (where the white dots are), ladder stitch the soles together and make some black cording. I like how it turned out. The gold and black together are cool and I really like the silk lining fabric. Nifty.
I decided not to go to exercise class as my calf is still very sore and I limp a bit. I am not happy that I can't get in my steps. That will slow down the weight loss a lot. Rats. But I look forward to being better next week and getting back to walking. How could I have hurt myself just walking? It's crazy.
