Actually this is just to show that Fanny the Fancy Flamingo is Finally Finished! As in, she is no longer prone on the cutting table. LOL. I was worried about wrapping her on the stretcher bars because of her scant fabric length, bu while trying to fall asleep Wednesday night it came to me, “Chris, just add strips to the edges, they will be on the back and no one will know.” Well, duh! So I did.
I am still amazed that I made this, considering I was clueless when class started and wasn’t sure I could get through it. But now, here it is, finished and so much fun!
Also finished is the hat I was making for my niece before I realized the colors were not what I was going for. So it will go to a charity my friend sends to across the world. So glad to know my mistake can bring warmth to a child!
I plan to cast on for my niece’s hat using the colors below. But first I need to determine where the colors will go. Do I use the blue as before with the light gray taking the place of the dark gray, or use the light gray where the blue is and the blue where the dark gray is? Well, why not use my Numbers program to see which I prefer?
This morning we are off to a Dr appt for my Mom, hoping we get the last puzzle piece taken care of and she can start being a little more normal. And then gather dogs and people and make the trek back south for a weekend of family and fun. Birthdays to celebrate and a solo for my sister at our previous church. She demanded I sing on her birthday. So I will sing. The nerves will set in about 30 minutes before I perform, but what can you do. I don’t think I ever stop getting nervous, even after 40 years of singing.
