Gentle Stitches #2 and some finishing work
I have made some progress. The numbers are done and I almost done with the little scissors. I am not enjoying those little scissors. Grr. I am ready to move on.
This morning I did some work on the 'framing' of this piece. I did a four sided stitch around the picture on Monday. Today I counted out from there and pulled threads, rewove threads and then prepped it for hemstitching. I think it will work out fine. I also want to say that I used my new wooden 'Presser' to assist with this project. I worked out really well. It is a firm edge to press fabric where you would have 'finger pressed' in the past. It really does a good job.
DH is doing well. I am surprised. This is the third chemo treatment. In the past, Thursday was a very bad day but this time is not as bad. I am not sure what is working, but we will take it.
