To answer a question from a couple of posts ago, my wedding cake was Italian Cream with Buttercream icing. I have no idea why they call it Italian Creme, but it’s a dense, rich cake (sort of like Spice Cake) with nuts in it. Mmmmm.
As I mentioned yesterday, I decided to stitch a little on Bay Sampler. I finished up the yellow fish yesterday morning and started stitching on the lighthouse next to it. I love this piece! It is big though, it is too wide to comfortably fit on my scroll frame, so I have the edges folded under, which is ok for now.
I stitched more on my Mystery Sampler also last night. Actually, I did a bit of unstitching. I had made a mistake on the A, so I picked that out and fixed it. (I still need to add back the green on that right leg.) Unfortunately though, it meant that two of the other motifs were in the wrong spots, so I unstitched them as well and restitched. Oh well, at least it is right now. This is a good-sized piece, so I hate to have a mistake in it, especially one that would throw everything else off.
I am feeling really under the weather today. I have a sore throat and a cough, probably from being out in the cold and rain and wind this week. I hope it passes soon. It’s making me want to curl up and nap with my cats though. Glad it is Friday! Hope you’ve all had a great week. I’m still waiting to hear that my biscornu exchange has been received and then I can post a photo. I am very happy with how it turned out. I may stitch on Barnabee tonight, depending on how I’m feeling.
I am grateful for reading Harry Potter at lunch.
