It was 56 degrees when I went walking this morning. Wow, was it nice! It is supposed to snow tomorrow so I'd better enjoy it today.
Yesterday was a mixed bag as far as embroidery goes. I got the peas sewn onto the boat.
Did I get the book cover attached? No. It was because my hoop was otherwise occupied. I have another hoop on order and it is in the mail. I was finishing up the backstitching on the Queen's Ruff. Then I cut out the padding for the Queen's face. I goofed that up as I cut one out of batting that should have been cut out of felt. Oh well, no harm, no foul. I stitched down about five pieces of batting.
I had a real problem finding her nose. She has a little foam piece for a nose. I looked all over. I was ready to give up, I looked through everything in the kit for the fourth time and boom, I found it. It was small and I overlooked it several times. Then I got to the exciting part, putting her face on. When I was about half way around, I discovered my error. I had assumed. You know what they say about assuming. I thought you matched up the front and back dots and stitched through them. Nope. You want to stretch the front a bit so the dots are 1/16 inch beyond the back dots. Ugh. So I took out what I had done. And that's where I am, ready to redo the backstitching of the face.
But what a face! She is beautiful. This is a fabulous kit and Amy Mitten is a genius.
DH is off to the grocery store to get the stuff for next week and Thanksgiving. I should get my Paper Pumpkin kit today. I have so much fun with those. With the cost of cards, this is a bargain. That's besides the fact that I have fun anticipating it's arrival and fun making the stuff in the kit.
I hope you have a fun day too.
