I finished all the details in Yuku's hair as well as the upper part of the kimono collar... lots of backstitching and French knots. While working on her, I kept up with decades of tradition by watching the Peanuts Easter "specials" and caught the Fat Albert Easter special as well. Hey, hey, hey!
Last week, I had stopped at a consignment shop and picked up a Patriotic chart and frame for $4. Turns out the chart sells for $6 and the frame is a special order for $20. What a great deal!
