Project Catch-Up Day ~ Or So I Thought
Yesterday I thought I could work on some unfinished projects while the dinner potatoes got fried. Ha! For the first time every, I had a bad crafting day. I was too much in a hurry to get some embroidery done.
I have to get this towel finished before the pattern fades away. I started to outline the cat in gray, but with the color of green I used on the dress, it appeared as a moss green cat.
So, after doing the bottom feet, tail and one paw, I started to take it out. I re-did one paw in black, and it looks much better. Now I need to take two paws and a tail back out.
This is the first time I have had a long, frustrating crafting day. I decided that I was not even going to work on tatting - no way at all. I did get some knitting done, but I still have a crocheted blanket to finish.
I tried to teach my 12 year-old daughter how to do it, but she whined, "Moooooom! You made everyone elses!"
Guess I can't get out that that one, huh?
While I was out on my porch, having afternoon devotions, followed by my crafting experience, my son pointed out a blimp flying over. I got these neat photos of it:
Just thought I'd share!
I have one sick daughter home today. I hope it's just a passing virus. Time will tell.
