Tuesday I was surprised when I got to the shop to discover that there was water on the floor of the back room. Fortunately nothing was damaged. And again, a wake-up call. Knowing how much rain we were having, it hadn't occurred to me while doing errands Monday to swing by and check on the shop. "It's only rain." Foolish me. It could have been so much worse.
My weekly progress doesn't seem like much on this gi-normous project.
I wanted to complete the interlocking gobelin around the "feather" in the nutcracker's hat so I could start the long/short split stitch with its edges overhanging the background stitching. I just barely made it!
