That's my goal for today, to make a box. I finished the stitching on the hive box lid.
I even ironed it. Now to turn it into a box. Then I'll feel like I am making progress on the Pioneer Girl's Book Etui.
Strike while the iron is hot! (That's a saying my Dad used to say. He thought it was funny.) I also ironed the lining for Mistress L. I told Paola that I would bring Mistress L to Williamsburg and have it all lined so she could see. So now I have to get busy and do it. At least the first step has been taken. I need to pin it on but first I have to go back and check if I need to do any more stitching. I put my initials near the alphabet but there is a space left.
The AW looks like AM because of the font. If I add a y then it would look like "Amy". I've been trying to decide whether to do that. It is now or never. When I stitched the queens the first time for my casket, I put little paillettes (spangles) in the background. Do I add those?
Again, it is now or never. What do you think Paola?
I got the label on The Owl and the Pussycat.
There is more that goes on around the label but that is done later. The next step is leaves on a Bong tree. I've never heard of that kind of tree. I'll have to google it.
I've just looked at the Home Sweet Home posts on Janet Granger's blog. Oh, my, I want to get back to making that. What has stopped me? A leaf. Or should I say a lack of confidence in embroidering a leaf.
It was 65 degrees for walking this morning. Lovely!
