Quaker Hornbook Noir is Really Finished

It took me a little longer to finish than I anticipated, but there was a lot of stuff going on this week. "Quaker Hornbook Noir" by A Mon Ami Pierre is in the finish column! I said that the first time last night to my husband and then I started proofing it.  Oops, left out a letter. A few minutes later, "okay, now it's finished...oh, wait".  That border motif on the left wasn't quite done. "that's it!".  But no, I hadn't signed or dated it yet. Finally, twenty minutes after the initial "Woohoo", it was really done.

So he says to me "Do you have the next project ready to start?".  You'd think after 28 years of marriage, he wouldn't have to ask such a dumb question.

  2. I love it! Will you frame it with a hornbook frame? I love those. Your husband is funny...mine rolls his eyes when he sees me sorting fibers and laying out fabric. He doesn't appreciate it AT ALL. :)
