Little Happy Dance....
Despite feeling vaguely like my head is submerged in a bucket of water, I managed to accomplish what I thought wasn't going to happen. I finished my little biscornu that will be given away in a gift exchange tomorrow. I'm finished a whole 24 hours ahead of time. That never happens.
Before they were whip stitched together:
Stitched on 32-count opalescent Belfast, over two
with Dinky-Dyes Pilbara, beads by Gecko beads
I'm so happy I managed to finish this. I always give something stitched each year and I'd be very sorry if I hadn't managed something this year.
Now I just need to finish baking cookies - 6 dozen down, 4 to go. I'm making Chocolate Pinwheel cookies - the same recipe that my mother made when I was a little girl. And my kids fight over who gets to eat the ends of the dough (you roll up the dough jelly-roll style then slice & bake) just like my brother and I did as kids. :-)
Off to drain the sinuses.....
