OK-this is a little embarrassing but I have a confession to make.
I am glued to the television watching the Casey Anthony trial. Today Katie and I had to run out to run some errands and it was very difficult to leave the house. Thank goodness for Nancy Grace and Dr. Drew! I can get updates on what I miss. There are also a couple websites I visit.
Why is it so compelling? I wish I knew. Maybe I am trying to understand her psyche; how she could continue to lie even when presented with her inconsistencies. Yes, I believe she was somehow involved but I doubt we will ever know the real truth. One reporter/commentator stated that he believes that everyone in the family is lying about something.
So that the time is not completely wasted I have been sewing-in my sewing room until it gets too warm and then in the afternoon I watch while working on this sashiko project I picked up in Baltimore.
The fabric is light blue and I am using white thread. Of course I looked up directions after I started. Traditionally, you work in rows, starting at the out side edges. So I guess that that almost completed flower was done incorrectly. I also do not have the finger thimble I have seen in several pictures. Oh well-at least it looks like others I have seen!
Have you tried sashiko yet?
