Last night I was able to get in the leaf stitch band on the Victoria Sampler Victorian Purse. Like a lot of stitches, once you get the pattern and rhythm down, it goes pretty fast.
The next band was the floral vine. The embroidery is finished but I will wait to put in the silk ribbon until the bargello band below it is finished.
Love the look of that bargello band! Hope I can count it out right the first time!
We did get that freezing rain this morning and all the area schools were closed. Love having my girl home a few extra hours! The temps did get pretty warm later in the morning so conditions improved greatly, and Kirsten and her boyfriend went out for lunch on their unexpected day off. After spending a week in my long johns and down coat, it was nice to run my errands with a light jacket on again - cuz 35 degrees feels soooo much warmer than 15!
