Do you like the pretzels from the mall or fairs/festivals? The BF and I made these from scratch yesterday:
It's the last week of the semester. Yay!!! This class certainly has kept me busy. This week I have four chapters of textbook reading plus homework for each, two postings and reponses to other student postings, and of course the FINAL exam. Last week students were able to rate courses and leave commentary. Overall, I thought the instructor was pretty good, but I did leave comments regarding the overwhelming amount of homework, and the fact that he expected us to turn it all in on time (or get a grade of ZERO) yet his timeliness of grading homework was sorely lacking. We'd get our grades anywhere from two to four weeks after we had to turn them in.
Carolyn at Taking One Stitch at a Time is hosting a Halloween Giveaway in celebration of her blogversary. Hurry, hurry. It ends Oct 7th.
There's been some questions regarding the flowers and confetti stitches I'm doing on Blossom Splendor, so I thought I'd show a close-up pic:
So far, I've done close to 100 of those pesky confetti stitches.
I was able to finish another page! I only have the bottom portion of her kimono left to stitch.
I've started some of the backstitched details using Krienik #4 Very Fine braid. It sure does make those areas sparkly.
Until next time,
