I'm excited when I start a new kit. I dive right in and think I know exactly how everything goes. Then later I find that I should have read more carefully. That's what happened on the Summer Jumble. I just realized yesterday that I did the first motif, the bee, wrong. ARGH. I was supposed to do a specialty stitch on the the bees wings. After getting so far on it, I would normally just leave it. But I really like this specialty stitch and so I might go back and take out the wings and redo them.
I finished the third row and am starting the fourth one. It will be a fun row as I love the heart shape flag.
I finished the scissors rest and decided to try filling it with beads. I went scrounging for leftover beads and found plenty. I had some crushed walnuts shells too but went for the beads instead. What a pain when you spill the beads!!
I started and finished another "Afterthought" for Cottage Conservatory. It is a scissors fob with a red flower on one side and a yellow flower on the other. Cute.
Then I started another "Afterthought". It is a pin cushion done in a "magic square". All the numbers add up to 15 on each row. It is a fun stitch but I'm out of geranium Sampler thread. Rats. I'll have to go digging and see if I happen to have some. Otherwise, I'll have to wait till I can get some tomorrow - and keep my fingers crossed that my LNS has some. Guess what? There is even one more "Afterthought".
It is a lovely Sunday and everything is greening up.
