International Hermit and...Darn It

It's International Hermit and Stitch Weekend this weekend! I was thinking earlier this week that it might be possible for me to actually finish Random Thoughts this weekend. In fact, today (along with a little Halo =) I managed to finish stitching the bottom border (including frogging and restitching). I even frogged and restitched the Jessica stitches on the sunflowers. I'd been thinking of doing this since I took the Les Ruban class with Tony Minieri last year and learned the "right" way to do a Jessica stitch (basically, your final legs need to go under the first stitch rather than over...this makes the stitch look like it has no beginning or end =).


I have gone over the instructions with a fine-toothed comb and I cannot find anywhere what I should be hemstitching with. The best I can find searching online is that it's supposed to be #12 pearl cotton, so I guess I'll go with that!

So any bets on whether I'll succeed or not??
