As you can see I finished the left mermaid panel stitching. Now comes the odious task of back stitching the darn thing (I did start a little at the bottom). I keep reminding myself that I should do it as I go along or there will be so much to do at the end (especially with a TW) that the whole project will languish. And then I get to reward myself with moving onto another section! I really am just so pleased with how this is shaping up, and am enjoying the project as a whole.
I did put Tradewinds down briefly to work on the latest installment of the Clouds Factory sampler… Which I would have had enough done to take a picture of had I not needed to unpick the largest Marlitt frame for the segment. Have you ever had to frog out Marlitt? It’s almost as big of a hassle as stitching with it! And of course I didn’t find the error until I was almost entirely through the frame AND the error was close to the beginning. 😮 So, stay tuned for an update on that next week.
