Yesterday was a difficult day. Although I am not the chairman of the upcoming convention, my husband is. And although we have both run many parts of conventions, no other fans in Las Vegas has. There are so many things to do and not many people here who know how to do them. But because my husband is a good writer and I know InDesign thoroughly, we designed and mailed an eight page progress report yesterday. After all the copying and stapling and stamping and labeling there was only one thing that I wanted to do. STITCH!
When I sat down and started, I think my blood pressure dropped 10 points. I knew that just a couple of hours would get this sheep finished. He now has legs and all his stripes and three flags. The flags spell out S E A. The only thing I am not sure of is the missing stitch in the bottom left curve. There is no stitch there on the pattern, but it looks like it should be there. I am also not totally positive about the light grey parts of the flags. The fabric on the model is much more tan and the grey flags stood out. The fabric in the kit is pretty grey itself, so the flags don't have as much contrast. I could restitch with B5200 and really make the flags fly. But would that change the muted nature of the piece too much?
Well, off to the next convention duty. The PR team will be here for lunch and I need to shower and get dressed. I hope everyone else is having a restful weekend.
