I'm still sick and while I don't feel very ill, I'm feeling really tired and nap time has a big draw. I worked from home yesterday and did manage a tiny one during the day. I also got going on my next rug project. It's just a little heart and I'll finish it off into a pillow. This one is smaller than my last one - only 10 x 10. But I think it's very cute.
Last night I finally got going on my Glove Class work - part 2 just came out and I haven't touched it yet. Remember it's the one I signed up for late last year from Thistle Threads? I very quickly remembered why I like cross stitching so much. I had so much trouble with even the basic outlining with a backstitch. Without the warp and the weave to guide me I'm lost. After I backstitched only two flowers (just that took forever I swear) I then had to do a long and short stitch to complete the flower. I worked on it for what felt like hours and never was happy with my results so I ended up cutting out every I had put in. I'll try again tonight with more penciled in guidelines on the linen. It's a good thing Tricia said there was lots of extra silk. I suppose I could practice on another piece of linen until I get the hang of it but I really don't roll that way. :-)
