I now have all the letters joined for "little spot" and "pumpkin pie" and I've got the letters made for "stinker" and "booboo."
Hmm, another bear reference. Booboo doesn't refer to a mistake but instead to Jellystone Park with Yogi Bear and Booboo. So that makes a Pooh Bear and a Booboo Bear.
I'm not liking how the purple accent is standing out. I did do a Picasa black and white check for contrast and it looked okay that way. Suppose it will be better after I get a bit more in there.
I'm still not completely certain how I'm going to sew this. Could be in rows like Bricks or in clumps, like Reach for the Stars. I'm leaning towards the latter, which is why there are big chunks of fabric pinned up as well as blocks.
Pokey decided that my fabric was the perfect napping spot. I had the towel down to block the sun, but it works as a fur-block as well, not that she sheds much.
In more mundane matters, woohoo, the car is finally fixed and we're now confirmed for our trip to Abu Simbel and Luxor. We've actually been to Luxor before, so we're skipping lots of stuff we've seen before like the Valley of the Kings, which I hated. The valley was way overcrowded, too hot even in November, and I felt claustrophobic down in the tombs and the incense was overwhelming... Apparently it's already hit the hundreds down in Luxor so it's just as well we're not going out to the valley where it's extra hot.
It actually rained like mad here in Cairo last night and it's only in the mid-60s right now. Ooh, just checked the internet weather and it says Luxor is 81 right now. Yeah, it's gonna be hot.
