Finally, finally, I was able to get the black silk framework for the final flame stitched!!! There was no ripping, no fussing or cussing--just head down and got 'er done.
And to continue with a charmed day--the USPS delivered a package, all the way from California, and on a Sunday, no less:
This is the newest online class from Katie Strachan.
This greets you when you first open the box.
And here are all the goodies inside.
The class doesn't start until January, so I believe I know what one of my New Year's projects will be.
Meanwhile, I am going to head upstairs to see if I can find a slate frame that doesn't have something attached to it. I have a whitework class starting Tuesday, and it will take me most of the day tomorrow to set up the slate frame.
Since I'm having a charmed day, it should be in the first place I look.
