I made three petals for the Tudor rose scissors fob.
I thought I would get better at it as I went along. Sadly, not. These are pretty rough looking. The best one is that one of the left. I am going to wait and see what all five look like when I put them together.
I started the finger loop braiding for the fob. Sadly, it too did not go well. First off, I cut all my threads in half so they wouldn't get so tangled up. That meant that I didn't have threads long enough to do the finger loops. I "borrowed" some threads from the Quaker Bag that I hadn't cut up. But then I got a knot after doing this much. Sometimes the universe works against you.
Rats. I'm going to try and untangle the loops and keep going. Again, I'll wait and see if I have enough for the fob. Some days things just don't go well. I should have just done something else like read a book.
It was too slushy to walk outside today so I went to the Y. The main streets aren't too bad to drive on.
I found a video and pattern on YouTube for a nice sailboat for the new baby's quilt. I ordered some brown fabric for the boat part that matches the Guess How Much I Love You fabric. I love the internet as you can find all kinds of things. How did I ever do without it?
