Sorry I'm late in posting, had to put in another job application today, this time at the county tax office. Keeping my fingers crossed.
I got quite a bit done so far on the dickey, this side is nearly done. I'm using a moss stitch for the body area but because each row is decreased I have had a hard time getting the stitches right and had to rip out several rows several times. One side looks wonky in the photo but blocking will fix that.
