I have excuses for not posting yesterday. There was a long line at the Arby's drive-through. (What does that have to do with the price of chickens? Well, actually I just wanted to try their fish sandwich and a jamocha shake but I gave up after seeing the backup.) I had to go to Walmart. Enough said. Everybody and his brother was in line at the Post Office sending stuff to their mothers, including me.
I sent off the birth announcement and the baby quilt too.
Now it is tomorrow and a new day. On my walk this morning:
I tried two more threads out on the Flemish Ornament.
It has become clear to me that I will start over on the new Duchess silk satin when it comes in the mail. There is still a lot of residual glue on the back of the satin I'm working on. I'm going to back the new satin with muslin and proceed from there. I will also be way more careful in tracing on the lines. I haven't decided what thread I'm going to use. I'm leaning toward the Soie de Paris.
Then since Staci is watching me stitch on Buzz, I better show her my progress.
It is slower stitching on a dark fabric but I think I can be half done with the sides today. There is a beehive for each side of the cube. Cute!
One week till the road trip, I'm getting excited.
