Mom is trying to finish all her WIPs before starting on any new projects. First up: This spring-themed pillowcase! I am supervising to make sure all the flowers look appropriately delicious. Now where are all the real flowers to reward me for my hard work?
Fun fact for fellow crafters: For some reason, Mom always thought the top stitches in cross stitch are supposed to alternate direction from row to row. We recently learned (too late for this pillowcase) that top stitches are actually supposed to all face the same direction. Oops…
(This is Mom’s second embroidered pillowcase. The first one was a big Snoopy pillow that you can see over here!)
On top of all the rest of this week’s crazy, Mom’s laptop refused to start up! After many very stressful hours and a lot of Supremely Outraged GRUMPfaces from me (how dare this contraption steal so much of Mom’s attention!), Mom’s laptop is finally back up and running (with all files intact!).
