Alas, no news on the bracelet. Perhaps the woman in charge will tell me later. I asked but no response - maybe that's not the thing to do? I'm sure I'll survive either whether I find out or not.
For Mother's Day, I asked my dear husband if he would get me thread for a small runner I would like to make. He said sure! I fell totally in love with Frivole's quatrain when she first shared it. But I've been working on other things so it had to wait. But if he was going to get the thread, he needed to know how much so that's why this prototype.
It's not nearly as nicely done as Frivole's but I like it well enough to continue and make the runner. It's unblocked but even so, I like the look. I can see that I'll have to work on tightening up the start- which Frivole clearly cautions in her pattern. And those are my first-ever Josephine chains.
The thread is Lizbeth 20, spring green. It's not my favorite color by itself but for practicing, it's just fine. The motif is a little more than an inch square and took about an hour to make. Hmmm--- could take a while....
Latin for today: necesse est mihi exspectare. = I'll have to wait.
