Son#1 has a shirt that says "RTFM". It's computer talk that means "read the directions" in so many words. That's what I should have done. I printed out some of the instructions for Harmony last night and came across information on how to do the Or Nue part. Too late! I just finished it.
I should have read it first and then I wouldn't have made so many rookie mistakes. But alas, I learned by doing or rather I learned by doing it wrong. But it is water over the bridge now as it is complete and it will do. As I usually say, it isn't perfect. But Yeah! It's done now. On to other things. I accidentally clicked on Lesson 16 and saw how to work the Tudor Rose scissors fob. It is soooo cute. So I thought I would just try one petal and see how it went. I didn't get very far before the clock struck eleven which is time to stop for the day.
Today I want to see how it goes. I am so looking forward to talking with Amy Mitten when I'm on the tour. I'm going to see if I can wheedle some information out of her on the next Casket Keepsake, Diligence. I can keep a secret, really.
I got a corner done on the Big Mermaid!
I worked to fill in some stuff so I could see how the corner looked all finished.
It is great. I love it.
I really should put a few threads in the Quaker Bag. I end up taking out half of what I stitch each time so it is a little frustrating.
I'd like to put a thread in Elizabethan Eights as well. I read through the directions but still don't know why the bottom border is sometimes over four and sometimes over six. I guess I should fix what I did wrong. Sometimes when I time myself I realize that taking something out only takes a few minutes.
I've been walking this morning. I started off when it was still dark. Then I've been to the Farmer's Market for the last time this year. It will be all over by the time I get back from the tour. I got some caramels to tide me over. Yum.
