I painted the box from A Stitcher's Heart. I wanted a teal color and I took the floss "Fennel" to Hobby Lobby with me to select a color. I found a paint color that was close to the floss and thought I was all set. Then I had to go to the bathroom. I left the paint just outside the bathroom door. When I came back, it was gone. Was it the cosmos telling me to pick another color?
I walked over to the paint and picked up the same color. I looked at the box this morning and I don't like it. It is too dark.
So what do I do? I could try another color. I could mix a color. I could just live with the color. I could distress it with sandpaper like I did the Blackbird Designs box. I have to think about this.
I stitched another Barbara Jackson egg.
I plan on finishing it off today.
I'm sunburned. I put some stuff in a friend's yard sale yesterday. I was out working in the sun and have some red bits today. I also got 18,000 steps in. That is almost a record. Yes, I was tempted to take a day off from walking but I didn't. Who knows if I will take time at the retreat next week to walk? I usually do, but last year I got lost and barely made it back.
