OK, I finished the green backstitching for the stems and flowers, dammit.

At It Again!

After days and days of happily being stuck at my computer doing page design, layout and final printout of the baby memories book for Grub (grandchild in progress) I'm back at the relping. Good thing too since I've decided the book cover will be fabric with a bit of quilting, some embroidery, maybe a few silk ribbon doo-dads... My usual "fling something at it until it is done" sort of thing. In between bursts of Ah-ha! induced enthusiasm I reintroduced my hands to the joys of counted cross-stitch. That is the sport where I create pixelish graphics on fabric, trying to see how many times I can manage to sew my fingertips to the material while avoiding the actual dripping of blood on the work. My score for the former is high and the latter low.
