I put together my Stitching by the Sea pin cushion. I used #12 pearl cotton for the backstitching and whipping the stitches togethere. It worked very well!
Then I wanted to start this JBW design.
I saw it all made up at the Silver Needle and thought it was gorgeous. It looked familiar, I might have that design. I went through some stash and found it. But as I was working on it, I was not happy. First, it is hard to work on a piece of linen that is attached to the needleroll. Then there is a major error on the chart. The symbols for Light green and dark green are switched. So after stitching half of the stem and wondering why it was so light, I realized the mistake. Rats. I had to take it out and redo it. I changed the light pink (which I couldn't find) to a darker pink to make the flowers look like strawberries.
The bathrooms are clean and I have reached 10,000 steps. Time to relax in the air conditioning.
