Hey there! Long time no see. I didn’t really do all that much today, just extended down the right side vine border and stitched the berry border under the verse. While stitching I did make some progress in the verse section. It definately needs more “something” and I think I’ve started to get an idea of what I’m going to do there. I don’t really want to keep moving down until I get it sorted out. I know that if I have everything else finished and this bit still needs work I know I’ll just do something half assed so it’ll be done. And I don’t want to do that to ATS, it’s very much a whole ass project. And the post title that refers to ATS, it’s now just over 21 inches long.
Saturday I spent a bit of time on Bluebell.
Her hair is complete except for the beads & I’ve started in on the Krenik wings. Normally I would have gone on to skin after the hair, but I’m not very happy with what/how Nora’s charted this gal’s skin. I’ll figure something out by the time her wings are done.
Reading: I had a difficult time learning to read. I still remember not being able to read. I also remember the first word I actually read. It was Fox – on the big G.Fox sign that was on a building in Hartford CT. Anyway by 3rd grade I was still in the lowest reading group, 4th I had clawed my way up to the middle reading group & somewhere around this time is when Mom made me “The Offer”. She would buy me any book I wanted and buy me more of my choice once that book was read. Have I ever mentioned that Daffy Duck is the cartoon I most closely relate to?
Yeah, so it was my greedy little heart that inspired my love of reading. 😉 By 7th grade I was in Honor’s Reading & I totally kicked the Verbal SAT’s ass. What I boils down to is, I love to read, I read fast, I read well & I always have a book within arms’ reach.
Not sure what I’m going to stitch tomorrow, probably my current Mirabilia RR. I’m in a Mira mood. Now I’m off to start a new book – Daughter of The Blood.
