I am a competitive person. I'm also very suggestiveable. That's not really a word. I have to be careful when watching food shows as I end up wanting to make what they made on the show. So when I saw that Kathy on The Unbroken Thread was starting her heart brooch. (She was my original inspiration for getting the kit) I wanted to do mine too. So I took out some of the stitching and restarted. It is working out well. I think the experience I got doing the round brooch is helping me do this one better. I am on row three of the couching. There is another row to go after this one. I wore my round brooch to exercise class and someone even noticed it! Heart's are very tricky as you can tell if they are a little off. So I'm trying to be very careful.
I made a bit of progress on Along the River James. I want to finish the River James. The small tree was supposed to be stitched with one strand but I used two by mistake. Oh well, no biggie.
I put in the sides of Romina's Box pincushion and the date. I'm going to stitch my name around the other sides before I put it together.
I figured out how to use Google Play and downloaded two books. I got one recommended by USA Today, The Silent Wife. I even took some time yesterday to read a couple of chapters.
