I changed her a bit here and there. There is going to be a Yellow Queen and a Green Queen on either side of her.
I like her a lot.
This is Ophelia's doll being measured for her dress:
No, I wasn't brave enough to cut it out yet.
I wasn't going to go to very many retreats next year. I was going to cut back. But I just signed up for one. I couldn't resist. BFF#1 and BFF#2 are planning on going also so it will be a blast.
I was asked how I stitched trellis stitches. The answer is, I follow the directions. Amy Mitten gives great directions in her kits and I've had good results following her instructions. I also looked up directions from Thistle Threads and gotten directions from a Catherine Theron kit. Since I don't do trellis stitches very often, I always need reminding about what direction to point my needle and to always wrap my thread over the needle.
It is the perfect summer day here. I wish I could keep this day in my pocket and use it next January!
