Feeling much better today. Being recently under the weather gives me a good excuse to avoid big issues like pressure washing the pool.
Instead, I spent most of the day working on making this come to life. Unlike Jude, I have no patience for silk's delicate sulkiness and am only too happy to pinch it, stab it into submission and then nail it into place with a million little thrills.
Much related to my new job, I have a new appreciation for my Janome.
