What do you do when you are waiting? Make hundreds of cherries!
At least I have started to make all those cherries that are going to be needed for the border. Right now I have traced out 1" circles, cut them out and have started the running stitch on several of them. I guess I can see the reason for ordering the paper templates that was suggested, because all I have are the four plastic Perfect Circle templates and I can see that is going to be a bit of a chore. So...I guess I will place an order for 200 of those paper ones. Once these are done, I guess I will have to start thinking about all those leaves, too.
