I first started this blog due to "popular demand" for me to to share my cooking and quilting results in blog form as it was easier for friends and people who know me to see what I'm up to, especially compared to just an image hosting site. Now I blog because I enjoy sharing what I do and hope that I do in some way inspire people to try new things out as well.
Monday's progress report showed the final outline of Wolf - and his size too! Yesterday saw the last of the black - I have finally finished all of the 3905 black stitches. While I was working I finished the bobbin of black I'd taken from my floss box (I started the project with a whole skein on a bobbin and then moved on to my stash bobbin) and had to bobbinate another skein, just 14 stitches from completing the black - typical! I then decided to do some more filling in and started with the Kreinik Solar Silver I love so much.
The strange line you can see going through the photo is actually the sunlight shining through the fence panels I pinned the embroidery to so I could make the photo's. I didn't do as much work yesterday - I had to take youngest to the orthodontist and then go into town for a few things as well as do the weekly grocery shopping after which a rest was needed. My arthritic knee had decided now was a good time to remind me that it was in charge (or so it thinks) and demanded warmth and rest. Sometimes listening to your body is a good thing.
