Hello everyone. Why does it seem progress is slow? I'm not stitching much, that's true. But the errors have really cost time and I'm taking one step back for every two forward. I finished the brown eyelet top row of that section, corrected and completed the green dividing bands, haven't corrected the chain stitch row, moved an entire row to compensate for a placement error, and now can't even spell correctly.
I was working on the A in AD and realized it wasn't under the prior row's c as it should be. Forgot the u in wrought. It's not a lot to remove but I am tiring of doing so row after row. Good thing I checked when I did. Many times my mind is on something else and I just stitch blindly, following the entire row without checking placement. Haven't decided if I will switch to an easier and smaller project. This is way too cumbersome to take outside or to appointments.
I won the only bid on Ebay for the Queen's Sweet bag from Sharon Cohen so the book cover is the last of her designs I am watching for. I ordered this book too, and it has great directions for constructing bags, but I don't care for the designs.
While in Lowe's this morning, a gentleman pointed to my legs and asked, "accident"? I said "no, intentional". He looked at me rather odd, didn't understand that I meant the medical procedures were necessary and planned.
Now what was I doing in Lowe's? Getting the gallon of paint for the cabinets and trim in the lighter color that they mixed for me last week. And here it is. Even my husband who believes there is only one beige can see the difference and the PINK! I am so ticked. Why bother mixing samples if you can't follow that same formula for the gallon?
Two appointments Monday morning, then a haircut, then off to the Amish greenhouse for a few flowers with husband and sister. I seem to not be lifting my foot high enough and catching this thick shoe on everything and anything. I sure hope I don't catch a water hose and take a header onto his flats of flowers. I could just see the domino effect leading to the eventual collapse of the greenhouse tent.
Have a great start to your week.
Thanks for visiting.
