I stuck with it and finished the Cricket design. Yeah! I added a bit to the crescent moon and I like it. I went back and put in stuff I forgot like padding the witch's lips and that iris in the mummy pumpkin's eye.
So two weeks after the event, it is finished. Of course I still need to finish-finish it into a trick or treat bag for Claire.
In cruising other blogs I see that a kit I want should be sent to me soon. A special Jackie DuPlessis kit, Pocket of Posies, was designed for and available to Swan Sampler Guild members. So I joined the guild early this year. I hadn't heard anything about the kit for months but someone got hers in the mail. So maybe mine is on the way too. Hurrah! Another reason to stalk the mailman.
I have a very sore foot. It is so silly. I dropped a big bar of soap on my foot, right on the big toe joint. Boy, does it hurt. I have a bruise. It is hard to walk 3 or 4 miles in pain. I did it this morning and I've got my fingers crossed that it will feel better tomorrow. I really should ice it though.
I printed out the directions for the knot stitch and the Antwerp stitch so I have no excuse for not working on those today.
