I am almost finished with the Edinburgh Reticule.
Just a few more stitches and a couple of hedebos and a tassel. This turned out nicely and I like it. I am happy I got all the parts finished too. Usually there is one or two pieces that I will do "later" (as in never).
The next three things I want to work on are the Summer Casket Butterfly, Hampton Court (do I even remember where I was on this?) and the Giulia half doll. Of course there are 14 other things I would like to work on too.
Francesca asked me if the directions come with the beetle I ordered. The answer is I don't know. There is an app that you are supposed to download from itunes. So I downloaded it. What do I do now? It seems to have only a pencil sketch of the beetle's wings and points for the legs. I don't know how to print it out or what size it is supposed to be. There is also something about an in app purchase for the beetle. Will I have to buy the directions? I will wait and see if more information comes with the kit. I think I may learn a lot when I make Amy Mitten's beetle. Her beetle holds a thimble. I may try to make the kit like Amy's. We'll see.
My BFF washed her Shepherd's Fold linen with Rit Dye Remover to see what happened. So I tossed my in the washer to see if just washing it evened out the color. It improved the splotchiness a little. DH thought it was a rag and put it in the rag pile.
