I’ve passed the half-way point on this GhostStitchers project. I do wish I could show you a picture – it turned out pretty cute. The second half has more solid blocks of color and fewer small motifs – and fewer French knots!! After the first knot I was feeling very positive – I was happy with how it turned out. Then I did 10 more – I’m not sure that practice actually makes them easier. This part only has 4 French knots and fewer partial stitches and straight stitches. I’m still very hopeful that I will finish the first week of October – we’ll see what my progress report tells them.
Plans are moving forward for our church’s first women’s retreat. I’ve been working on the devotional item, and I’m very excited. Last Sunday I helped the coordinator pick out colored card stock. 🙂 We now have less than 2 weeks to finish getting everything ready. I’m glad we’re starting with a one-night retreat – I think it will be a good way to get people into the idea of doing one every year.
Have a great week, everyone – fingers crossed that I have smoking needles this week and make amazing progress!!
