I've finished two leaves on the magnolia, and about 1/3 of the flower. I had almost completed backstitching the petals that I had done when I realized (d'oh!) that I was using the wrong color. I'm supposed to read the fine print? The mistake came in handy when I went to backstitch the leaves. Chose the right color this time.
Housesitting now for a colleague. Petsitting, really. His little dog likes to get on the afghan and chew it. Fortunately, his teeth are very small, and he knows the word NO.
