I missed a week. It happens. I’m still here. The cross stitch is still slowly coming together. I got ultra tired of the blue sky. You can tell because I even finished the text, something I swore I would leave to the very end. I just have a tiny smidgen of blue to finish. I’m sure I’ll buckle down and do it in the next few days.
I’m a little worried about the text coming undone. No one tells you how to anchor backstitch with nothing to run your thread under I mostly left a long tail and let it get tangled up in the stitching and wound the end several times under the last letter. Hopefully that works.
I’m trying to finish this before I leave for vacation July 8. I don’t know if that’s feasible because the rainbow beneath will probably be quite a bit of work as well. I would like to finish it before August because I’d like to get it framed and hang it up for my birthday. Happy birthday to me. NO MORE BLUE. LOL.
