The Princess and the Pea: 8th mattress stitched
Well, another mattress completed, meaning 2 more to go before this part of the design has been completed except the little pea under mattress one, which according to Marion's instructions is stitched at the very end.
You will see two white lines (thread) over the top three mattresses. Those are there to help me with the shading of those three mattresses. Each section from left to right goes from lighter to darker.
It has been pretty hot around here lately and no rain. Yesterday it went up to 108°F making it very difficult to spend any time outside. I feel like a prisoner of my own house. Trees and shrubs are suffering from the lack of rain and heat. I am quite concerned that by the end of the summer we will have lost quite a few as we have had a double whammy this year, a very hard freeze in Spring followed by a very severe drought and nobody knows when this will all end.
All I can do is keep stitching. At least I have that :-)
