I find it very hard to stay on task especially when I have something that looks like lots of fun right in front of me. That would be the 4th Apple!
So I spent 2 days working on the background stripes and THANKING HEAVEN that I have finished the border. TWICE!! FYI, those little red beads in the red stripes are a pill to put in.
I did work one leaf just so I would know how.. Still have the backstitch to do.
And here is J - I am also thankful that July only has 4 letters! Meaning, I may finish this in 2017! Yes, I still have the pumpkin parade to finish 👻
So the new plan is to work the next apple and return to the background. It's nice having 2 months to do your homework.
