The second half of the verse . . .which I now need to fill around with tent stitch. Over one. This may take awhile.
And then, today, I got home, and found a delight from the Swans:
The 2014 Swan Sampler Guild ornament kit
Every July the Swans have Christmas in July, with a special ornament designed just for the Guild. There are also surprise presents--and this year I was one of the lucky recipients of a special notebook in its own little case!
I am so very, very tempted to put a stitch or two into this, but I'm going to take a deep, deep breath and start on the tent stitch around the verse.
