I am determined to have two finishes today. I am going to finish Mistress L and I am going to finish the Elsa Costume.
BFF#2 helped me keep my nose to the grindstone yesterday and fill in that blackwork space.
There are just a few finishing touches needed and the stitching will be done! I wanted to add a few flourishes to the top of the arcade.
I wonder when I started this back up. I'll have to look on this blog to be able to remember. It seems like forever. But it was a very big project. I am very proud of it. I can't believe I did it on 40 count linen. Now I'm not afraid of 40 count like I once was. I also learned that stitching over three is no big deal, I can handle it. I have made changes to Mistress L so this sampler is truly my own.
Then on Elsa, there are many tiny mistakes. I hope they aren't noticeable.
I counted seven small things that have to be done today. Four hems, a repair, a hedebo and a button. Then off it will fly to California. I haven't sewn any clothing for a while, I'm a little rusty.
I got the Ornament issue of Just Cross Stitch in the mail.
The ornaments were nicely organized. I didn't find anything that I wanted to make. There were a few designers missing. I didn't see one by Shepherd's Bush. I'll have to check but I don't think I saw a Jackie one either. Maybe I'm not into ornaments as much as I once was. Does that mean I'm getting old? Or maybe I just have too many other things to do.
