I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Stitching Progress

Here's my current progress on Jane Plews Sampler.  The designer just updated us with additional parts which is good because I'm almost ready for it.  I'm really enjoying this sampler.  It "just" uses good ole DMC but aren't the colors beautiful together?

I felt like I needed to stitch something patriotic but instead of starting something new, I found BBD's In Full Glory still kitted up (minus the fabric) from when I stitched part of it for an exchange block.  So that's my patriotic project for this year.

Happy stitching!

Back home from CA....again

My husband was attending a conference in San Diego and since I loved it there the last time we went, I decided to go along with him again.  We were staying in the East Village right up the street from the baseball stadium...and very close to the Gaslamp Quarter where there are a lot of things to do within walking distance.  I loved walking to the other side of the convention center to the harbor area to walk around, watch the boats, and people watch.  This time I walked over to Seaport Village (I think that's the proper name or at least close to it) and browse in the shops there.  We also took the ferry over to Coronado Island and walked around there too.

A friend and her husband were also there (he was also attending meetings) and she and I took a day to drive up the coast just a bit to walk on several beaches, hike at Torrey Pines, and stop in at La Jolla to see the seals at the cove there.  We also stopped for lunch at a little local Mexican place in one of the little towns in the area.  What a fun day!!  (I have the sunburn to prove it.)  I'd definitely go back again, given the chance.

I finished the model and sent it off to the designer before we left for CA and the designer received it.  (I always feel good to know it arrived safely.)  Now I'm working some more on Jane Plews sampler.  Here's my present progress:

Happy stitching!
