I purchased 4 packages of DMC black floss. Little did I know that I would have to buy 8 more in order to finish the infinity symbols on the back (coat) of my quilt!!! It felt like and eternity to work each symbol in the Portuguese knot stitch ( one of my favorites) especially on the hot days we had last week when all I could finish was one or 1/2 of one a day. I still have to do more in the center to anchor it but that will have to wait a bit.
To relieve the boredom I started on the framing the front with lace. I am still auditioning corner ideas. It beats !!working on the back
When I went to college I never liked to read over my papers when they were completed and right now there are so many details... the back ... the lace ... mounting the flowers ... TO make matters worse I went to Delectable Mountain Cloth yesterday and OMG - purchased fabric for my next..... "project"!!!
