I finished stitching Sakura!  I didn't think it would take all day but it did.  I cut out the two parts and today I hope to get it all put together.  Then it will be done done done.

I started the white flower.  I wasn't sure whether the satin stitch padding was supposed to go inside or over the split stitch edge.

The book didn't say.  So I chose to do it inside.  There are two satin stitch padding layers and then the top layer will go over the edge.  I'm sort of on-a-roll with this and want to work on it while I have some momentum.

I got a Fitbit report on last year.  I walked 1161 miles (miles!) last year.  DH says that is half way to Peoria.  (That is a play on words based on the song Marching to Pretoria).  That makes me think of the saying " a journey of a thousand miles begins with just one step".


  1. The Strawberries and White Flower look Beautiful, Amy! And I am so proud of you for taking all those steps. Maybe you will inspire me to get stitching and walking!

  2. Sakura is beautiful.
    Can't wait to see it put together.
    Congrats on all of your miles walked.
