I finished stitching Sakura! I didn't think it would take all day but it did. I cut out the two parts and today I hope to get it all put together. Then it will be done done done.
I started the white flower. I wasn't sure whether the satin stitch padding was supposed to go inside or over the split stitch edge.
The book didn't say. So I chose to do it inside. There are two satin stitch padding layers and then the top layer will go over the edge. I'm sort of on-a-roll with this and want to work on it while I have some momentum.
I got a Fitbit report on last year. I walked 1161 miles (miles!) last year. DH says that is half way to Peoria. (That is a play on words based on the song Marching to Pretoria). That makes me think of the saying " a journey of a thousand miles begins with just one step".
