Pretty Sad Looking

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?
