I got started on the new lessons for Mermaid Treasures. The basting is in. Then I got brave enough to try putting on the wool roving. Luckily there are lots of photos to help along the way. I wasn't sure if I was using too much or not. So I email Amy Mitten to ask her if my mermaid was too fat. She said she looked fine so I am good to go on to the next part. I think the next thing I do is put the satin on. Eek! I'm a little afraid of that but I'm following Amy 's directions.
I worked the next cartouche (I love that word) on Needleworker's Pocketbook. I changed some colors of floss based on how pale the other basket of flowers looked. With just a few tiny stitches, you have to go darker than you think to have them show up. Now, do I go back and change the first one? Well, yes, probably parts of it. I'd really like to finish up the top two bands today so I can go on the the landscape.
Mr. Mailman hasn't brought me anything all week. Will he redeem himself today?
And how on earth can it be Friday again already??
