I finally got my bag unpacked and all the laundry done from my St. Louis trip last week and am packing it up for a trip to Michigan starting tomorrow. This trip is for fun so packing will be a little different than last week's which was for work, but still takes a bit to figure out what I need (of course if I forget anything, there are stores nearby...). A bit of stitching has happened but nothing that will win me any speed awards.
First up, Christmas Presence. I spent a good chunk of a morning working on it and got several colors completed. It went from here:
I think I will work on him this afternoon as the blank spaces are big blocks of color and should fill in fairly fast.
I pulled out a semi-oldie for my small piece this week, 12 Days from Plum Street Samplers.
I finished the vertical between 9 and 10 and started the bottom line on 9. Oh yes and started 10th day. I think the black bit is a hat, but I am not 100% sure.
To Have and To Hold had the most progress and is here now:
More backstitching. This band also has three Rhodes hearts which I am looking forward to.
I am just waiting for clothes to dry so I can pack my bag so while I'm doing that I think I'm going to work on Christmas Presence and then put To Have and To Hold back on the frame for tonight's stitching block. I have a small piece I found in my stash drawer that I may take with me in case I get tired of reading.
