Many times after I have stitched something, I think "If I were stitching this again, I could do it a lot better since I would know what to be careful of, what not to do, etc". That is what I was thinking while working on the needlebook to Ebony and Ivory. It is a little tricky to sew the ribbon on and have it look nice. What do you sew it to on the sides? I was trying to think of a better way to put this together. I was also thinking that maybe this will look like an antique when I get done.
It is a little bent. The stitches show more than I want and are a bit uneven. I'm not sure what the point of the white bone slats is. Just decoration? They do look cool. I think there is a must be a better way to weave them in and to keep them close together. The corners are still messy and rounded and uneven, don't like that.
So you can tell that I have mixed feelings about this piece.
I finished up the Renaissance Button Box.
I really like this project. It is now on display in Curio Cabinet #2.
I went to Walgreens yesterday and bought a ton of candy for stocking stuffers and gingerbread house decorations. It was a dream come true for my 5-year-old (inner) self. Boy, are those cherry cordial M & M's good.
I only ate two but they were great. I know that those Cherry Cordial Hershey's kisses will be just as good. I haven't dared open those.
