I was accomplishful last week. Very accomplishful if compared to my usual output. I feel I might someday soon be worthy of all the kind things you all have said (THANK YOU SO MUCH for dropping by and leaving comments!!!!!!) I got these ornies finished:
And I must say I'm in love with the spool. I do just adore how it came out.
For those of you who have expressed a desire to try a pendibule, I have a helpful hint -- only use soft fabrics for stitching. My linen one went together pretty easily in comparison to the one on potato lugana (in the above photo). The stiff fabric played holy hell with me trying to balance keeping the piece held together while fishing beads out for the edging. Another thought--- unless you have perfect lighting, don't do your closing with a thread that matches the fabric. Sheesh that was a pain!
Aside from the ornies, I finished a long-overdue RR. Yes, Jody, you finally get your Sassies RR back! No more whining! Hallelujah!!!!!!! I'll be able to post a picture of my it when I return from Myrtle Beach -- I'll be delivering it to Jody there and I'd hate to ruin the surprise. Sandy, don't you dare tell her it's coming!
I also got most of an ornament exchange piece done for Martina Dey's Weihenburg Yahoo Group. Can't show you that either. Sorry!
Well, I'm back to the salt mines since this time next week I'll have spent nearly a whole day in Raleigh hanging with Chris! Look out Lazy Daisy, here I come!!!!!!!!!
