Hey, it's not bad. And there is a Lady I hold in high esteem who makes
great clothes (got her Laurel for Elizabethan, which in the East takes a
LOT), but can't embroider at all. I can practice, and she'll get a
present she will truly value. I figure I win all the way around!
It is hot and steamy up here, so even though I survived the end of the
school year, I'm getting nothing done that I should be. Two canvas
pavilions, a bunch of banners, a lot of clothes to sell at Pennsic....
sigh. The only things I have accomplished are finally vacuuming the living
room, finishing a xstitch present of ABC images for friends who had a baby
this spring (and I don't want to do ANYTHING for a while that involves
just x after x!), and some stitching on that coif.
I have to be very careful - the stuff I traced onto the coif does rub
off very easily!
You are SO invigorating about what I wanted to do. I was right, you
were the equivalent of a spank to get me going on a project I wanted to do
for years, but just never got around to. If you ever need a housekeep
for the summer, I volunteer!
