Maybe today I can finish The Owl and the Pussycat. When I last showed my progress, I was working on the tree tops. They are challenging! I was not at all happy with this one:
It doesn't look even and some of the pieces are not laying like I want. But Paola said it was fine so I didn't take it out. I didn't really want to start over anyway. I looked at it everyday trying to decide. In the end, I left it. Then I worked on the label.
I added the mossy bits. I need to do a couple more stitches on the right side.
I worked the gold over the letters. I thought it would be really hard to do but it wasn't. You just do one side of the letter instead of having to cover the whole letter.
I sewed down the boat and the water around the bottom.
I'm working on the last tree top. These loops are going better that the other tree top.
I have the mast of the boat to do yet. I need to add the guitar to the boat too.
I will be really thrilled when it is finished.
Torrie said the Wren kit will be sent early next year. Can't wait!
Maybe today I will put up my tree drink some egg nog and address some Christmas cards. I made some shortbread yesterday and it was good.
