A few things that need to be updated since the last time we talked about stitching. First off though, my new little nephew is already almost 1 week old already!! Amazing how time flies. I remember watching my clock last week and announced that he was already 1 day old. My sister and brother in law dressed him in this super cute little grey stripe outfit with a giraffe on it and took him to coffee hour at church yesterday. Everyone was just thrilled to meet the little guy just 5 days old :)
Today I wanted to share with you some stitching projects I have been working on.
First up is the La Da Da Stitchers Roll Kit; I have completed the stitching, now onto the wonderful finishing part. I cant tell you how fast that will be complete-- I am not the best finisher, but we shall see. Depends on how quick I want if off the pile! (sorry for the wrinkles)
Since the stitching is finished on the La D Da Stitchers roll, I needed another new travel project. I managed to dig deep into the basement and stash dive for a bit. What a hard choice!!! There were so many beautiful options, but looking for the perfect 40ct linen project wasnt the easiest. I was looking for something that wasnt quite as simple- or small, and something that would last a bit longer (however I am not sure how long it will last because once I really get into it, I might want to finish it asap--like with Elizabeth Mears)
So, wanting to stitch this next sampler has been in the top section of my basket next to my stitching chair for like 2 years, I decided to start stitching Jane Tindall from Needlework Press.
Speaking of hitting the road, how many of you have ever done a United States cross country road trip? East to West, West to East? See anything that was so fabulous?? Any cross stitch shops that are a must stop? Quilt shops? Antique Malls? Landmarks? Museums? State Parks? Restaurants? Packing up the old car or truck, motorcyle, 5th wheel or Motorhome? Pack a lunch or hit famous road-side diners? How many stitching projects do you actually take???
I would like to know!!!! I am just curious as my Husband and I are getting ready to pack up and head out!!
