You got a lot done, D. Busy day for you.
I have 2 blue dot days now. It seems a little easier this time to get good habits back. I hope that continues. I still want to lose 25 pounds this year.

wow you guys have been busy! you probably could have cooked that chicken on the sidewalk lol. that is a pretty puzzle. I never see nice ones in the store like that or the birds one you posted. had a fun time visiting relatives camping over night though no one slept well other campers sound travels snorers lol so everyone didn't have much sleep. early night. only put away what had to be done.
worked on my latest hat out of the remains of the last two yarn cakes. pulled out some yarn to take to cousin overseas. that is about it. leftovers were for dinner. lord knows I have shopped enough for groceries so plenty in the house.
I have a little outfit for my doll almost done. I think I may add a tiny bit more thread to her hair. I only have a little left on the spool, so I will finish it off.
I will be taking Wednesday and Friday off, so a nice long weekend.
This week/weekend I also want to play around a little bit with a lucet I ordered for cord making. A lucet is a traditional tool for cord making. It looks like a large wooden fork with only two tongs. They don't have to be made of wood - I saw some plastic ones - but most of them are wood. I could have bought a cheap plastic one, or maybe even made one, but I spent a little bit extra for a nice one. Then I splurged more for a book on using it. I have a one book current that has one type of cord to make with it. The book will have more types.
I got distracted a bit by some books one something called nalbinding. It is a traditional Norwegian craft that produces something similar to knitting. It seems like knitting is actually much easier, so the only people who still do it are Viking reenactors. I was tempted, but took a pass on it.
I am planning to use the cording for shoe soles. I got some jute for this purpose, but the jute is pretty scratchy. I am thinking of using dishcloth yarn. It has a lot squish factor. Some of my other yarn compresses by half or more when squish the ball. I do not think this would be a good trait for show soles. I will have a lightweight sole sewed to the bottom for traction and protecting the yarn.
Straight crochet is not really a thick enough sole. Well maybe if I used really thick yarn or multiple strands together.
I only have three issues for making shoes - the sole, the top part and attaching the two together. So basically everything. I guess I just feel ready for a challenge again. There is a certain psychology behind it I think. When I fail at something it sits in the back of my mind. I want to keep trying until I get it right at least once.
I've puttered around with a lucet but the one I bought had too much of a flair at the top to make it easy for me to use. I haven't gone looking for one that works for me yet. I'd love to get back to trying to make cords using the lucet.
I did get some work done on the lapgan. I actually have two of them going. One is the WIP I leave in my car. I ended up just puttering around one of the local malls since it was too hot and humid on Saturday to really do anything. I was able to get a bit of a walk in by walking around the inside perimeter of the mall. Then I just sat and people watched while working on the car WIP. I think I might need to pick up a few more skeins of the yarn but I'll wait until I'm nearly done with the skeins I have now on that one. The lapgan WIP I have at home is coming along and I'm pretty sure I don't need more yarn on that one. Good thing is, it doesn't cover my legs the way the full sized afgans do so I don't get too hot while working on them.
The sidewalk chick reminds me. My MIL once fried an egg on the sidewalk. The family was moving away from California. They last day there was the middle of a heat wave. Since they could not really take refrigerated food with them, on a whim she decided to crack an egg on the sidewalk to see if it would cook. It did. There is an old photo documenting this.
Of course no one ate it. My MIL was very picky about the cleanliness of her kitchen.
I had never heard of a lucet. I watched a short YouTube video on using it and it looks like fun.
Last light I finished the scarf and got another half done, as well as hemming the fly shield cloth. I just used a rough running stitch so it didnít take long. Also I just left the selvage that had the pattern printed all the way to the edge - No need to waste time hemming that. Iíll do one for the bottom tier but it canít be as large. Iíll need to go through the fabric. Iím sure I will find something appproximately the right size that I wonít need to cut. Mostly though I put pots and containers on that tier and they are basically upside down so not as threatened by flies. I hate flies!
I have another two trays of chicken, one in the pressure cooker now. My plans for all the chicken is to chop to use on salads, put through the food processor (roast too for this) to make meat salads for sandwiches, chop some to freeze to have ready to use for whatever. Iím also going to cook some rice and put it together with some of the chicken and vegetables to make fried rice ďkits.Ē I have some ground beef and the other two chuck roasts I have thawing in cold water in the sink.
Iíll get the lastvtray of chicken cooking when the first is done, but I plan to wait to do everything else for a couple of hours until stuff is thawed, or thawed enough to carry on. In the meantime Iíll crochet and just relax. Itís a rainy day here, no thunderstorms for a chance, just rain. Itís such a soothing sound I canít guarantee a doze wonít slip in there too.
Iím tired of managing food stash. I want to play.
Down .4 today, not much but I'll take it. I skipped breakfast which I'm sure was a mistake. I can eat it later.
I got out and planted the table garden this morning and put in kale, spinach, French and Italian salad mixes, and several kinds of radishes. The table garden isn't that big so it's not a lot of each. We also added some height to the fence so the table garden won't be a deer buffet. I hope something grows. We moved a set of washtubs into the fenced space, but by then I needed to come in the house. It was so muggy out. Husby weed whacked the lower RV pad, so as soon as I'm ready, we can move the camper down so I can finish the AAR, I hope. The cut weeds need to dry a while so we don't get grass stains on everything, so I don't want to start anything today. It's supposed to be miserable weather all week.
Put borders on the yellow baby quilt this morning. I think it is around 34x44". I was limited by the aqua fabric, of which I only had a FQ (one of those JA $1 sales bargains) The yellow was a $2/yd bargain leftover from Easter. I saved a piece big enough to use as the backing, too. Not going to win at any art show, but I hope it is cheerful.
Made the purse strap this morning, too. I found a very near match in solid blue in my stash.
This is the fabric for the next purse. I have already started, been sitting on this for two years waiting for the right pattern. Can you believe the black print is a christmas fabric? :biggrinsanta: :scratch:
I snapped the partially finished skirt to the camper and stuff actually fits pretty well.
This pic shows our rusty steps and the zippers I used to close up the space behind them so the skirt will fit around the steps.
I like how it worked out but I need to add a couple snaps under the door. I don't want to but decided I can't get by without them.
A friend on another forum mentioned Harbor Freight clips while saying to someone else that if he gave me a spark, I would soon have a blazing fire. He was right, and now I know how to clip my skirt to the camper fender, even though the HF clips mentioned won't work. I don't have the piece added yet but this is the problem.
That open space above the skirt won't keep any bugs out, and I can't use Velcro or snaps. I feel better now that I have a solution even if it's not implemented yet.
Well, shoot, WW is going to stop publishing a magazine. I will miss it. They're sending me Living Well instead to the end of my subscription. :sigh: They better never get rid of the app because that's what makes WW so easy to follow.
Living Well isn't bad, but I'd rather have Eating Well or Diabetic Living.
The camper skirt looks nice.
Thanks. The skirt would hang better if not for the forest of weeds standing right next to the camper and behind the skirt.
I forgot to mention I think the yellow quilt is very cheerful.
I love the combo of the plain green and Christmas print on your new purse project.
I got blue dot #3. Only 97 to go! I messed my food up so much today I had to have a 3 pt bag of popcorn after supper to make my food minimum and get my dot, and I still have 1/3 of my dailies left. Oh, well, I used 4 weeklies yesterday. I try not to use those at all. I have to do better tomorrow.
the quilt is nice! dh cousins daughter is having another girl in sept but I have a baby blanket done for it already. don't think she will use it anyways. did send one to the first kid. she can use it for one of the dogs too. it is a multi coloured baby yarn that I got from mary maxim but didn't do it for me. I plan to make some blankets for my kids for if they have some later. when my hands are too old.
finished the hat from the 2 leftover cakes. scratching all the bug bites from camp and here mosquitos are out. we didn't sleep much at the camp so we were in bed early and lazy day. canada day so the booms of the fireworks is just over and the cats quit complaining about being in when they started.
realized i have to come up with some steampunk ideas easy to pack and make for camp this summer too.
Down .9 today. I hope to hit my first mini goal tomorrow, then reset for another 5 pounds.
Time to repot some tiny plants into big pots. They don't seem to be growing, so will try giving them more space. They are tomatoes I started late. But it's also some peppers started in March that just don't grow. I can't figure that out. Need to plant carrots, too. The caged zucchini is turning yellow and not growing, although it has lots of buds. I think it might have gotten over watered. I will try to replace it but the nursery is probably sold out by now.
I have some more work to do on the AAR before its next fitting, so we probably won't move the camper today. We need to set it up though, so I can get the clips for the wheel well flap. I need to add the snaps below the door, too. I'm sort of in the wrapping up stage of the AAR project, with a long list of little things still to be done, most of which won't take more than a few minutes each.
It's going to be another busy day. More opportunities for more steps! :cheer4:
M - thatís a good idea to make a store of blankets for future gifts. Mosquitos are evil. I hope the itchiness subsides soon.
Busy day here too. I cooked a 3 lb chub of ground beef yesterday and turned it into spaghetti sauce which was not the plan, so I need to thaw and cook another. I got a fair amount done yesterday, but havenít actually packed much yet. I quickly went through the frozen veg yesterday and I think itís 2/3 green beans. I guess I keep buying them and them not cooking them?? Dumb. It looks like Iím going to be eating a LOT of green beans for the foreseeable future. Thatís what I get for not keeping track better of whatís in the freezer. I still havenít cooked the dang eggs. Thatís up first today to I can get the breakfast meals packed and in the freezer. I think Iíll have to move the veggies to the fridge freezer to have room to start packing away the meal trays. I think what I can get done today and tomorrow is it. Thursday I will celebrate my freedom from cooking.
I found a piece of fabric for the second fly cover. It was part of a curtain from a long past apartment. A year or so ago I used most of it to make a pillowcase. What was left was just about the right size. Iím glad thatís finally used up in some practical way.
M, congrats on finishing another hat, and sorry about the bites. It's that time of year isn't it. We have heard some firecrackers here. It is stupid, the police send out messages reminding everyone that they are illegal, yet there is a sales tent in every grocery store parking lot. I'm more concerned about the gun fire, we have a few "patriots" in our neighborhood who like to show off.
SD, hope your plants recover.
DC, have you tried green beans cold in a salad? That would be a good way to use some up, and no cooking. You just blanch them (which might be considered cooking but it is very easy). I'm going to make another nicoise salad this week. Lettuce, tomato, hard boiled egg, and whatever vegs you have: green beans, peas, asparagus, etc. Dump a drained can of tuna over the top.
Today I am going to try to finish the "christmas" purse. Hope my black thread holds out. I only have the one partial spool, and I can already see the bottom of it. The assembly is all top stitching, so I can't cheat and use another dark color in the seams. If I run out I can move on to a star block or start my cross in star, which is lilac this month. Not sure I have lilac thread, but there's plenty of white.
I also have to do some unpleasant house cleaning, as we have guests coming for the weekend. They are not sleeping here, but will be hanging out and there are a lot of thing that need to be picked up, wiped down, etc. I don't want to use DH's tactic of just shoving it in the basement or garage, especially since next week is what I call "all you can eat trash pickup" where there is no limit on the number of bags we can set out.
Thanks SD. Rather them then ticks! it is part of life here. getting rid of standing water that has been sitting so no breeding. we get them inside and I get bit while sleeping. cat came in to eat and I saw a raccoon walking though the yard so now he not allowed out for a bit. not happy but he did see the raccoon so not complaining yet. he is loud has a poor poor pitiful me howl.
Canada Day is the only time normally Cities do big firework shows. Halloween is when people can light fireworks here. You can get personal firework shows too. There is a big contest in the summer with countries around the world doing major fireworks. huge here.
I wish they had that here! would save on dump fees. also people just dumping stuff. also people who don't have the resources too because hiring people to take stuff away is $$$. we are lucky to have a trailer.
that salad sounds nice.. I don't like green beans much unless they are sauteed with some sauce to kill the flavour. so family doesn't get to eat them much. unless they come in chinese food. but they are long beans more. no one likes tuna here except me and the cats. so not a frugal option here.
in the look squirrel frame of mind today..already cats in and out treats, answering emails, checking michaels ad to see if tshirts are on sale. have latest murder mystery movie on I pvr'd morning show mystery. not the greatest acting but ok. just had another squirrel thought but stopped myself lol update my travel list to pack. had a bad sinus headache all day from smoke etc so took sinus pill and allergy pill at night. don't need sleeping meds w that.
need to go to michaels for steampunk ideas. plus some of the caron cake red velvet yarn was raining most of early morning. so cool here. but sun coming out. need to make a bunch of appts. dentist, vet etc. besides the other issue thing she ate the wrong grass sharp that gets up your nose cus she is coughing. may as well get it done. trying the new dentist on the corner who had good reviews.
kids pet sitting job is over. of course housework etc. but that is ongoing. figure out something for dinner too. kids need to eat that watermelon.
will start on another set of hats too. just need to pick a new cake. something different to go with the stash.
I’m taking a break. Eggs still not done. Sigh. I got as far as putting the out on the counter. I did a big pot of the green beans seasoned with garlic, rosemary and marjoram, them sautťed them. I never season them the old fashioned southern way with bacon but I have some and may do a pot with that. I was also thinking of using some in a three bean salad, but I had other plans for the canned kidney beans I have. I don’t think I have enough for both. I’ve cooked other vegetables this morning and the brown rice for the fried rice. I cooked some vegetables for that yesterday, and have chicken ready. When the rice cools I’ll put that together, to be fried when I take it out to use. I’ll probably put in some slivered almonds and dried cranberries too. it I also have a pork loin cooking.
I’m trying to use up stuff in the freezer that’s been there quite a while. There is one smoked sausage and a good bit of chicken so I’ll cook more of that, probably tomorrow since it has to thaw. I would like to get most of the meat cooked and start fresh as sales come along.
I have laundry in - I’m really going through the kitchen towels - and will probably have the biggest pile of pots and pans tonight. It will be a really long day because I want to get as much done as I can.
M, you can make the salad with whatever fresh vegetables you have, the idea is to use what is seasonal or available. I got asparagus and avocado this week, with lettuce out of the garden. Also, you can use leftover chicken or canned salmon if that is more appealing.
I'd love to know what ideas you come up with from Michaels. I have a costume event over Labor Day weekend (Sept 1) and could use some inspiration myself.
Purse is almost done. Have to find the right button, and make the strap. I think I have just enough thread remaining.
The bear was back, and she brought her cub. Again, didn't want to leave. We will probably have to call the DNR. Maybe they can haze her.
I got the 2 snaps put under the camper door. When the caulk dries, I can mark and install the corresponding halves on the skirt. And try not to smash my thumb this time. I will sure be glad when the AAR is done. I'm tired of thinking about it. And it would be nice to finally be able to use it.
Finally. Got the eggs cooked. I just mixed the duck eggs in with the chicken eggs. Then I burned my left thumb and index finger. What a dummy. I knew that part of the griddle was hot. I think I’ll just spend some time assembling trays and keep my hand away from heat and hot water for a bit.
Don't you just hate it when there's some little chore you just can't make yourself do? And it hardly ever turns out to be bad enough to justify all the procrastinating. Good for you getting the eggs done.
I made myself go out and mark the skirt for the last 2 snaps, since the caulk was dry enough. One more little step done.
Not doing too much. It's 82 in here, not much cooler than outside.
I worked on the pink mesh bag, just need to sew trim on the sides then it will be done. The shorts are only hemmed on 1 leg so far. :vs_worry:
Those are nice bags. I like mesh bags because I can see what's in them.
I like salads but the family doesn't. only caesar salad the boys like. or I would make meal salads a lot. I like wendys salads esp apply pecan chicken one w blue cheese.
my friend called and we went to value village she is old enough for seniors discount so I used that. got some things to use for steampunk. dd did some research too. you can break down old clocks and paint the gears. lots of things have just gears glued to them bronze and gold colours. found some sunglasses etc. old crochet booklets posted pics plus hat Attachment 49111Attachment 49113
here are the booklets...though don't need anymore lol plus bought what I thought were just feather clusters to use for other costumes but they have elastic on them like for flapper head dress or thighsAttachment 49115
I think I have the leaflet on the right. I like those old vintage leaflets, too.
Down another half lb this morning, so I made my first goal of losing 4 lbs. I'm resetting for the next goal, losing 5 lbs. I lost 4 lbs in 4 days, but will start to lose more slowly anytime now. I'm mentally prepared for that so should get through it without bingeing. Emotional eating sucks.
Husby wants to go into town this morning. I'm hoping the nursery still has a zucchini for me, and maybe some cucumbers.
It just occurred to me I can do ALL the mods needed on the AAR except determining if the roof needs to be extended, without moving the camper. I think so anyway. Everything else is happening at the back of the room next to the camper, and level ground doesn't matter much there. This thought makes me happy. The room would be usable though not ideal without making the roof longer, so we could just check that part out next trip. That should be a big help.
Now I'm remotivated to work on the AAR. Hope I get a bunch of the little stuff done on it today. And a zucchini.
I finished up my little doll. This used one whole roll of the cheap pearl cotton. The cheap pearl cotton is only 5 grams per ball. Half the normal size. The dress is made from recycled fabric. This felt is the lightest of the skin tones I got.
I started playing with the lucet. The cord is a little thin for what I had planned. This is standard weight yarn. I might try two or three strands of yarn. This is a fairly squishy yard but the cord is reasonably firm. I am thinking that maybe the yarn balls are just wound really loose to make the yarn skein look bigger.
I tried making the knots looser in the last part so the cord is a bit thicker.
SD - yes, I’m glad I finally got the eggs cooked. It wasn’t really procrastinating for a change. I never started with them because I wanted to get things underway that would take longer like the pressure cooker things or starting the ground beef browning. Soon I was juggling too many things to focus on egg scrambling or mostly I just didn’t have room to get out the griddle. I ended up getting 16 meals from it. All have eggs and sausage and either waffles or hash browns or English muffins. I have a little sausage left over frozen loose in a ziplock bag.
My thumb and finger absolutely vetoed hot water but I could not leave the kitchen as it was. So I ended up washing everything that wasn’t really greasy with cool water and a LOT of soap. I couldn’t have walked back in the kitchen today if I hadn’t. I would have had to just burn the place down - lol.
Today is the last kitchen day. At least that’s the plan. I have chicken to cook and may do another ground beef chub and just bag it have some browned beef available. Lots of veggies to cook. Nothing complicated.
I’m working, finally, on the last banana berry scarf. After that I have enough of the green tones mix for one more, then it’s back to the grab bag pile. I’ve downloaded several books from my library onto the phone so I’m ready to go. One of them is about the New York mafia. I have never had the slightest interest in the mafia, but it was included in the recent two for one sale, so I decided maybe it was time to learn something else new. I hope the reader is good - it’s 33 hours long. Since I only effectively paid about 4.75 for it, it’s pretty cheap entertainment. But - sigh - one more day of cooking first.
Kathy, you posted while I was writing. The doll is really cute. I think the hair looks great.
M- I like the doily book. I started messing around with thread, beginning with some snowflakes. Very mixed success and Iím sure it would have been hilarious to watch. Talk about all thumbs! Itís still in my list though. Several years ago I did a challenge on a crochet forum to make an afghan with regular weight yarn from a doily pattern. It had guidelines for scaling up in size. Not too lacy, about ? number of rows, a detail I wish I remembered, and such. It was fun to do and turned out well.
Your little doll turned out really cute, Kathy.
I can see why it took a while to get to the eggs, D. I still need to put together some of those Just Crack An Egg things for the freezer.
Don't think I'll get much done on the AAR today. We ran errands and I'm already tired. Cucumbers were on sale 2/$1, so I bought 12 to dehydrate. Have to process those right away. I want to make cucumber powder from those to see if I can make cucumber salad dressing that will keep more than a day. Have some other stuff to do too.
No cucumber or zucchini plants left, as expected.
I did BOGO 3 pepper plants and 3 Tumbling Tom tomatoes. I don't think we've had trailing tomatoes before. They have lots of tomatoes and blossoms on them already.
Kathy, your little doll turned out very nice. Are you planning more?
DC, glad you got your cooking done and are set for a while.
SD, sorry you did not find any plants. This time of year you should be able to get seeds going real quick though. They'll come in later than your first plants, giving you a good supply all season.
Finished up the christmas purse. Not sure why it is half an inch deeper than the first one. Not a big deal. Made the strap longer, may adjust that in the future. Grandma's button box yielded a big red button to use on the front, unless I find something fancier (The blue button on the first purse came out of her box too).
Thinking about my next project(s). I have 68 leftover charm squares from the yellow quilt. 63 will make another child's quilt, about 32x42". OR, I could move on to the other fabric I have, pale blue with pink and yellow circles, white bunnies and yellow chicks. I got a 31" yellow dotted remnant to go with that. Add a solid blue FQ from the stash and there will be a lot of leftovers to mix in with the ones I have, meaning I could go lager than 32x42". Choices, choices.
Iím taking a break and I am beyond tired. Unfortunately the day isnít over yet. The cooking and packing, either to freeze or left in the fridge to eat now, is done except for for chicken. They were boneless skinless breasts but thick so I pounded them flat. Violently. I donít have a meat hammer anymore. What to use? I spotted a two handed pot with cooled vegetables in it. I put the lid back on that and pounded with it. It was sort of a drop hammer technique and that chicken knew for sure it was flat when I finished. It was pretty funny. Thatís marinating now and Iíll cook it while I tackle clean up. I thought yesterday would be the biggest dish day but I was wrong. I have all the same pots dirty again plus all the containers/pans used to hold some in the fridge. Oops. It just occurred to me I may have another container of roast in the fridge. I hope not. Anyway I have a mountain of big stuff to wash. Then I must at least sweep up the accumulated rubble on the floor, but no mopping tonight. Luckily I donít have roaches or they would be the size of Airedales after feasting tonight. However except for mopping on another day I will be finished before I quit tonight. How good it will feel!
The doll is really cute Kathy. What's her name?
Pink mesh bag is finished. The 7" zipper is a limitation - I can get my hand through but it would be hard to stuff a large item into the bag. I'll remember that next time.
I'm experimenting w/ hat bands right now. Most of my straw hats are plain. I have a lot of scarves, remnants and buttons to experiment with. It definitely changes the appearance. I also finished a potholder yesterday.
I usually just make chicken cutlets. Much easier on my wrist.
I have to cook chicken tomorrow, too.
All I got done on the AAR was to pin the pattern I made to the flap fabric. I should be able to work on it tomorrow if we have power. Fargo is getting pounded now and these storms are supposed to be here early tomorrow morning. Oh, joy.
CH, our season is very short here. I might try planting another zucchini though. The cukes are less important because I bought some at the grocery store. They're in the dehydrator now and I'm curious how that will work out. I want cuke powder for making salad dressing and tomato juice. It's an experiment. I did plant some cucumbers but they're in a bad spot, so probably won't produce much.
JoAnn has free shipping today July 4.
I have a gift card.....:vs_OMG:
But.....I think I have enough to keep me busy around here today. Decisions, decisions.......
I did a sandal makeover.
The first picture is the before with plastic straps.
The second picture is the after picture. Next week I will try it indoors at work. See if they work for more than a few minutes wear. The trim is knotted and glued on the bottom. I am not sure if it would survive outdoor wear. Especially since our founding fathers decided cobblestone sidewalks were a good idea.
Uh oh. Now I will have to take a look at JA.
Down .4 today. I don't know how after the massive screw-up yesterday. Micro popcorn is evil, even if it's jalapeno! But I'll take the loss any day. I didn't get much to eat yesterday thanks to the popcorn, so maybe it was enough to rescue myself. Today I'm back on track. Got my healthy breakfast of an egg wrap and watermelon, after an hour and a half of walking between the house, garage, and greenhouse. Got my lunch defrosting in the fridge, and sort of a plan for supper.
I potted the six plants we bought yesterday and planted two seeds I hope will turn into a thriving zucchini.
After about 30 years, I found a use for a set of 3 stacking plastic bins. They fit perfectly in a little wire table I got for 50 cents. I've been using it in the gh but couldn't find containers I liked to fit the shelves. Two of the baskets stack on the bottom shelf. One fit the middle shelf after some surgery to remove the basket legs. Perfect. It will be a nice place for small tools, gloves, and stuff like that. It's a small change that should be very handy. The little table sits by my washtubs I use for mixing soil and potting things.
Still need to work on the AAR.
The storm isn't here yet, but it's getting darker.
Whew! Finished about 10:30 last night. Everything packed away, everthing washed, floor swept. The kitchen table is still piled with clutter and of course all the clean stuff has to be put away, but that was enough. Now I can live on the bounty. The rest of the house is a train wreck but that’s a problem for another day.
I’m not sure what I will do today. Instead of crocheting all day I think I will get out the flowers and cross stitch.
Happily I can’t think of anything I need from JA.
More progress on the lucet cord. Going much faster now. This is made from two strands of yarn. It uses the two balls on the side. I have my single strand practice cord up top for comparison.
The single strand was made with the yarn on top. I did not do enough for the green to show up in the cord.
