I’m just about completed with my tropical bird project.
If they look creepy and a little soulless, it’s because they are missing their eyes, which will require a French knot. A French knot looks like this:
French knots are hard. And I’ve found that I have a difficult time interpreting directions for more complicated stitches, perhaps because I am dense. The instructions are like this:
So I’m taking a break on the French knots right now because I really need to finish my Thanksgiving projects.
One will be for Mom, one will be for Boyfriend’s mom, and one will be for my best friend’s mom, who always makes us Thanksgiving dinner every year the day after Thanksgiving. It is amazing and this year will be the fifth annual dinner.
So that’s keeping my busy.
Also keeping me busy is my little bug, who’s back home with me this week. The apartment was so empty without him so I’m glad to have the little pup back. He is a LOT more chill than he used to be, so I can’t complain too much…but he still enjoys stealing my stuff every now and then. Like yesterday, he ran off with my sewing packet and nearly swallowed all this thread:
I can’t believe next week will be Thanksgiving! Now off to do actual work…
