I am hoping to have another small finished tonight. It's a San Man tuck banner, By The Sea. I worked at it yesterday at my part time job, and I just have a little bit left. I would have had it done sooner, but I managed to spill red Koolaid on my first attempt on Thursday, so I am a little behind. Let me tell you, it was beyond depressing to look down at my little Koolaid-stained WIP. I considered rinsing it out, but I pitched it. And I was more careful with this one.
I must pat myself on the back for not, in the two years I have had this little chart and charm, losing the charm. Losing the charm is pretty much Standard Operating Procedure for Me, so this is a big deal. I had to swap out some of the colors, but I think the floss I chose for the lettering goes really well with the tuck banner and the charm.
Next up is a chicken pillow for Mom. She tried to get me to buy the kit on Saturday, but it was $24 and I spent A LOT of money at my LNS. So she bought it, and requested I stitch it for her. It's a rooster with scissors; she doesn't understand why there are scissors on it, and, to be honest, I don't either. So I am going to center it and remove the scissors. It should look OK. It's a pretty pillow; it's sorta like toile, with tiny little chickens on it. I would love to know where places get these cool fabrics. It's not at Joanne's.
