J5 is alive! I worked on this over the weekend. Not only is it my loving tribute to MJ but it's my name too. Everyone calls me Jackson or Jackson5. When Dillon and I got together he called me everything except Jacquie. Like Jack Rabbit, Jackknife, Jacket, Jack-o-lantern, Jackhammer, Jackpot.... thankfully Jackson is the one that stuck!
Unable to decide on a good fill stitch for the J/5 I settled on French knots. Hmmmm, I'm learning that I like to torture myself. The knots themselves are easy-peasy but they're so time consuming. I like background entertainment while I'm stitching, and just this section lasted through all of Godfather II and half of III. (Yeah, you can tell I'm not actually watching it if I'm putting on the "gem" that is Godfather III.) Despite that fact that I was fueled on by boredom and booze it got old quick, had to put er down until Monday.
