I know it's hard to tell, but I did get started on my new ornament yesterday. I found the tool that tightens my stretcher bars, so I decided to go buy more thumbtacks and get started. I didn't get too far--all I did was baste the center channels--but at least I started.
And I decided that my tightening tool and my thumbtacks needed a new home, so now they live in the top of the file box that holds my Gay Ann charts, never to be lost again. If only the masking tape would fit in there, too!
