Great Headway

Between unpacking, celebrating my birthday, boozing it up with strangers, and plans for the rest of the week, I don't know when I'm going to get another chance to say, hey! So how are you? I've really missed you.

When we were in Bermuda, I got a lot of stitching in. I finished October's anniversary prize (more on that soon) and made great headway on both By the Sea (my mother's Christmas present) and the confetti stitching that is DD's RR*.
By the Sea
Yankee Stitcher
called for WDW floss
some random light blue fabric
Sorry for the craptastic photo. Our camera batteries are dead, and we only had one new AA battery. Somehow the camera knew I was trying to use half-used batteries from other devices. How does that work? (Really, I don't care to know.) So you're stuck with phone photos.

*No photo. We promised each other not to show our RRs so the final would be a big surprise. I think the big surpise is that it's two years late. And I'm not complaining about the confetti; it was my choice.

It's so tough readjusting to "real life" after a vacation, isn't it?

Your By The Sea looks great- another chart I guess I'm going to have to find!

Hope everything settles down for you soon.

You've been missed!

I enjoy your craptastic photo - what a great design! - and I've taken plenty like that myself (for the same reason, LOL).

Great hearing from you. Watch that booze! ;)

I have to say that after checking out your link, I'm about "this" close to taking my vegetarian leanings that last step. Uck. Porktoberfest is not for the faint of heart.

Yup...I too am going to have to look for this chart.

I'm working on Christmas gifts too. Hard to believe it is not that far off.
