It is now colder than it was when I got up this morning.
After a week of spring-like temps and rain, it's starting to act like January. It's getting colder by the hour, but the sun is trying to come out, and I am always much happier on sunny days.
Do you think it might have something to do with easier stitching in daylight?
Yesterday I filled in four little leaves with detached buttonhole. Teeny little leaves means teeny little buttonhole stitches. And they were not only teeny, the direction of the buttonhole stitches changed. What was Hannah thinking? (I know what I was thinking when I was stitching them, and it wasn't very nice.)
I also remembered one of the reasons I had laid Hannah aside. She suffers from floppy linen--to the point that I think I'm going to lace the sides of the linen to the sides of the scroll bar. Before I do that, I want to unroll the top of the sampler to see if I can figure out why the left side of the sampler is lower than the rest of it. I can't imagine that the stitches that hold the sampler to the roll bar have come loose, but that's the only logical explanation I can come up with. I guess I'll find out.
Anyway, after getting the leaves done, I thought I'd do a little on Carmen's Etui. The four corners are filled in and I've started just a bit on the center motif.
