Oops

I've been working on the Quaker Bag but progress is frustratingly slow.  I was able to finish the accordion pocket.  Yeah!

Then I started on this panel:

But I discovered that I miscounted the backstitching.  Am I taking out everything I put in?  No way.  I fixed the backstitching but I will put in everything I can.  I may have to leave out a letter or two of the alphabet.  No biggie.  There is a lot of stitching on this panel.

I started Monica's skirt.  I got her apron all done and ordered more floss which came last week.  This is great for when I get fed up with the Quaker Bag.  This is done on Wren Wing (?) Legacy Linen.  It is 34 count, I think.  I like the in hand feel of it.

I walked at the Y and the bathrooms are clean.  DH has gone off to soccer for an hour.  Time for me to play.
