Today was the perfect day for walking. Cool but not cold. Beautiful blue sky. You would think it was Santa Barbara (one of my favorite places).
I am almost done with Elsa. She needs another sleeve and a couple of hems. Yeah!!
Hopefully she will fit Miss Claire.
Then I can be on to other things.
Santa has a face. However, if you look closely you will see that he needs an arm.
Mistress L only needs the blackwork finished and a couple of finishing touches.
If I hemstitch the edge that means I can display the sampler in all its natural glory, like a quilt on the wall. I don't like to put my stitchery under glass anyway because to me the texture of what I made is a big part of the design. But that's just me. I understand some people want to protect their work from dust and dirt and other unmentionables.
BFF#2 is coming over to stitch today. Yeah! That will be so fun. I want to hear all about the class she just went to.
