Took my lovely Agnes out yesterday to the morning stitch-in my LNS. The green silk sent to me by a lovely lady in California worked beautifully as I finished the green on the bottom border. And the border matched up. Always nice when that happens. For a second or two I thought I was one thread off. Just my eyes playing tricks on me, I guess.
On our last trip to IKEA I bought one of these large plstic bags, an ISIG that cost all of $1.99. I thought it might be useful for storing needlepoint canvases in progress. Turns out it works perfectly for toting around a large project on scroll frames and now I need to go back and buy a few more of these.
I'm looking at Agnes and have realized that my goal of finishing her in January for framing is realistic. I do need to work on her every day though. I figure my deadline is to have her completed and at the framers by January 10th. (Publicly stated and I'm sticking to it.)
