So finally I've started Little House Needleworks which I received as a travelling pattern from Valerie in France. Keep an eye on this space over the next little while because once I'm done you might be the next lucky stitcher!
Here's my floss toss before I started it last week. I'm stitching it one strand over two on 40ct tanzanite linen. I was able to pick up all of the floss colours sometime ago at Stitcher's Garden in the Syracuse, N.Y. area except for Crescent Colours Clay Pot... I just picked a nice bright red out of my stash to replace it, GAST Buckeye Scarlet.
As you can see I've not managed to get too far on it. I've been exhausted this week so I've not been able to do hour upon hour of stitching in the evening and this weekend was busy with a day out fishing with Todd on his new bass boat. Today I spent the day with Tracey doing some puttering around town and lunch out before she heads East for the summer.
Todd's dream came true this year with the boat (almost) of his dreams (the dream boat wouldn't fit in the garage)
Ready for a day out on the water!
The fishing was slow, and Todd was the only one catching the few fish that we did get
When I got bored of not catching any fish, I pulled out a little stitching!
A little visitor
The end of a wonderful day on the water (despite the poor fishing)
In a few more weeks I'll be starting my summer travels, and I can't wait! I'll be travelling down to the Charleston S.C. area to visit with Claire and wee Zachary the last week of this month. Then I'll be following Tracey out East again. Though I'll be going back to the same places I went to last summer, I can't wait to go!
I'm also looking forward to my travels next year as well! Yes I've already got stuff booked! Of course I'll be going back to the Dominican Republic for my 6th year in February with 15 new students. I'm also very excited that I've booked my flight to Yuma, Arizona for March Break! I'll be spending a wonderful sunny week with Kathy, my very special friend! I'm hoping there will be a road trip to the Attic for a little stash shopping!
I'm going to be spending far too much time on planes in the next year but I'll love it in the end!!!
