It's Friday.  Every fifteen minutes its breakfast.  That's how fast time seems to be going!
I got the center band of Ebony and Ivory done along with the pulled thread band next to it.  Great progress!

 Now to some of the ebony parts.  I started the thread weaving.  This project is made easier since I have done a fair share of large Shepherd's Bush kits that also use some of these same stitches.

I got a lot done on the hard side of the mermaid's shell.  I know it doesn't look like much and that I didn't make my goal.  So I'm keeping the same goal: get everything above the horizontal basting line done.  It may take me another week.  But once I get that much done, I know I can finish the rest.

I saw a photo of Tricia finishing the inside parts of her casket, probably to show us how to do that in our last lesson of Cabinet of Curiosities.  Just seeing the photo is exciting as the first ordered caskets will be delivered next month.  Am I at the head of the line?  I don't know, but I sure hope so.  We'll have to wait and see.....  I've got my fingers crossed.
