Here is Joy about a third finished. It took a half an hour to frog the Weeks Dye Works Envy. I wasn't exactly following straight lines, so it took a little time to find out where to unpick the stitches next. I really didn't want to go after it with scissors. I was too afraid of nicking the fabric. Yes, the Crescent Colours Jolly Holly is just perfect. Green, but still light enough to let the letters show through. I still dislike this thread however. It still knots like crazy. And although it is a variegated thread, it is not variegated enough to make it worth finishing each cross as I go. I still am though. Force of habit. Just like I railroad everything. Next time I run across a pattern with Crescent Colours I am definitely going to change them for solid DMC (320 is a perfect match for Jolly Holly) or GAST or WDW.
Although I got a lot done last night, I don't think I will finish it completely this weekend. We are still spending some time at Corflu, the fanzine convention. We also have a lot of other projects (like Westercon) that need work, too. There are still two more levels of tree, a large star, the rest of the red border, the rest of the green side panel, and a whole bunch of stars to do. Have a good weekend, everyone.
