The other three seasons in the series are all kitted up and waiting in the to-do mountain.

I woke of Tuesday morning, and panicked! Tuesday was Marguerite's birthday and I was going to be seeing her that evening for dinner and our EGA meeting, and I hadn't done a thing about the finishing of the flat fold!
I gathered all my materials and supplies, and started 'finishing'! I did really well until the perle cotton got all tangled as I pulled it off the skein....took an hour to untangle it all, but it got done....I layed it ever so carefully on the back seat so that the glue holding on the chording could dry on my drive, and then shoved it in a gift bag as I got to my destination.
Happy Birthday, again, Marguerite!

I did run into a problem though. I pulled a bobbin of #209 (the one on the left) but when I stitched with it, the color just didn't seem to work with the other floss colors. So I checked my floss again, and pulled another bobbin of #209 (the one on the right). It was a different 'shade'! That shade worked better so I pulled out all the stitches with the first bobbin of #209, and restitched it with the second bobbin. I have heard of people having problems with dye lots but this is the first time it has happened to me!
