What have we here? It’s a completed sleeve for the Hex Coat! Because unabated moss stitch is boring as hell, and Mr. Nick agrees, I took the picture with a mossy basket of geraniums. Artsy, no? I started back in on the left front. I had worked the fronts up to the armhole shaping and then put them on holders while I mulled over what length I wanted this coat. So I am more than ½ through.
Today will hold more workroom delights. We have finished cutting all the various lengths and angles and are putting the chairs together. I am a bit surprised that we are not further along, but Mr. Boar has turned perfectionist and things are being not only measured twice, but then cut to a template. I know it’s a good thing, but alright already! He does anticipate being finished today though, and then I will begin painting the chairs. I know I should paint them before they are nailed together, but each chair has about 15 pieces and times 6 and that makes for more wood than I have places to lean it while the paint dries.
Mr. Boar says I am a slave driver. It’s 8:00 am, do you think I should go and haul his ass out of bed so we can get to work?
update: it’s 8:37 am and here is the scene in my bedroom
