Mr. Mailman brought me some spangles yesterday!
Now my little naked fishie is dressed in sparkly glory.
I love how he turned out. I love how his tail sticks up. He wasn't hard to do at all. Every little step in the project I am afraid I will mess up but so far, so good. I appreciate how fast Hedgehog Handiworks sent my order from L.A. Next step on Hampton Court is the sun. Let's hope I don't mess that up.
I finished up the needlebook front on the Toy Box and started the back. The back is going slowly since it is almost all over 1. ARGH.
I put everything down yesterday to get something done that has been hanging over my head and must be done in time for the wedding. I'm making a ring bearer's pillow for Son#1's wedding. I stitched this C.A. Wells picture frame a while back.
Yesterday I stitched the names on it using some Krenick #4 silver braid. Now I need to make it into a pillow using silver lame fabric.
We'll see how that goes. The lame is very stretchy so I may have to stitch it to some stabilizer (muslin) first.
The Farmer's Market was very busy today. They still had some tart cherries so I got some while I could. I hate pitting them but they make the best pies and crisps.
I should work on the front of the Toy Box but we'll see what I feel like.
