Yesterday it was raining. That's my excuse for not posting. I went walking and then it started to rain and DH came and picked me up and then I went to exercise class and then I cleaned the bathrooms and by that time it was lunch and The Young and the Restless was on and yadda yadda yadda.
I got half of the pastoral scene done. I hope to make a big dent in the other half today.
I got all the way around with the buttonhole stitch on my mermaid. Then I gave her a tummy and some boobs. Next comes the hair. No, actually I do the features of her face next. Let's hope I can make her pretty and not grotesque. Now that I see the photo, I think her belly button is a bit off center. I'll have to fix that.
I had a wonderful mail day yesterday. I got the Kit 2 of Cabinet of Curiosities with a lot of interesting goodies inside.
Lots of colors of Pearl Purl. I wonder why it is called that. The silver tape looks so cool. I love the piece of marbled paper. It is so professionally done.
I think the plain paper is what is applied to the wood of the casket before the stitching. I will have to get busy on the trinket box sides so I'll be ready to put it all together.
I got some magazines I ordered off of ebay that had some Barbara Jackson designs in them. It took two weeks to get here from Colorado. Good grief.
I got an extra chart that my BFF had. Can't wait to try that out.
I got my monthly order of Hand-Dyed Fibers.
I got confirmation for the Dyeing to Stitch Retreat in October. I got in the track I wanted with Shepherd's Bush and Pam Reed.
Then Son#2 and DIL sent me my very very favorite flavor of taffy - Cherry Cola!
What a lucky girl I am!
