Having a positive attitude makes everything go better. I am going to finish the Queen's Ruff this week! I started the last row of the Ruff. It isn't really hedebo stitches but detached buttonhole stitch.
I am loving how it looks.
It is the perfect touch for the bottom of the ruff. I was worried about the points from the last row not being very "pointy" until I saw what comes next. You don't even see the messy points. There are about 48 loops around the bottom edge. And you have to do them twice.
I know when this project is done I will look at it and wonder how I did it. Amy Mitten is a genius - again.
Then I decided to face my fears. I picked up the end side of Home Sweet Home and decided since this is my WIP that I am determined to finish this year, I need to get started. I had to figure out where I was and get that darn leaf finished. I am not good at long and short stitching. But I finished two leaves. Next is the caterpillar. I couldn't find the thread for the base of the caterpillar. Then I looked at a blog by someone who finished it. She substituted many of the threads and even showed a list of her substitutions. That gave me courage to just go looking for something caterpillary. I think this will be fun to make. In fact, I'm going to add some flowers as I go along.
The bathrooms are clean. It is going to be warm this week. Maybe even warm enough to walk outside. Yeah!
