Great Strides

I am making great strides in getting Mermaid Treasures to the finish line.  I put together the other side of the mirror frame yesterday.

Then I started the lacing together of the two sides.  Not easy.  But I'm using a different technique than when I put the snail together.  (This is the reason I am remaking the snail - so I can lace it together more neatly.)  I like this way much better.  So far, so good.  Now all that is left to do is the backstitched edge.  I am ready to start that.

It is still snowing.  Our street hasn't been plowed yet.  My knee feels better today and hopefully I'll be able to get back to my walking tomorrow.

I finished stitching the Queen Victoria Scissors Case.  I love the flowers on her skirt.  I've decided to just finish her off with fabric rather than make her double sided.

We got the last instructions for Barbara Jackson's Peace on Earth ornament so I want to get busy on that.
I think I will try to put together the large gingerbread house kit so that Dylan can just decorate it tomorrow.  He forgot his glasses last week so no Pizza Hut personal pan pizza this week.  I think maybe I'll take the ingredients to make a smoothie instead.  Of course, I have a few gifts for him.

  1. I love the way the edges of the mirror are laced together. Is it to be needlewoven or back stitched. I look forward to tomorrow's photos to see progress. I hope you and Dylan enjoy the gingerbread house.
