The sheep now have grass underfoot and are no longer floating mid-air.
And I've started on the framework for the back panel of the needlecase.
Who would think a simple repeating border would make ones eyes cross?
I'm having to be very, very careful with the thread. It's an overdyed cotton. Overdyeing cotton tends to weaken it a little. And the linen is very rough, so it's abrading the cotton even more. So, I've switched to a larger needle to make the hole a little larger so the thread can avoid as much of the linen as possible, and I'm being very careful to stab the stitches straight up and down. It's helping--there's not as much fraying.
Also not as much speed . . .
