Wrapping up my Florida stitching.

We are heading for home this weekend so I am packing up the projects I brought.  

I completed all the crosses on my long-neglected Debbie Mumm 'Keep the Spirit'.  

This pattern came out in 1997 and I think I bought it in the fall of 2001 in Tulsa at the first Camp Wanna Sew I attended.  It will take additional research for me to figure out when I started it but maybe 4 years ago.  It was awkward and cumbersome in my stitching chair at home so it got put aside and soon I forgot all about it.

I decided that it would be a good Florida project since I didn't have the same space restrictions...not to mention my thread loving cat, Murphy, is at home.  

As of this morning, here it is.

Back when I originally set it aside I had completed most of the outlining on the areas I stitched.  That leaves me with roughly half the outlining to carry on with at home.  Knock on wood that I am far enough along that I won't quit again.  

The next project I brought on this second, and shorter stay, is the third 'A Year In Chalk' by Hands on Designs.  Phew, that dark fabric makes me work.  

February is finished and at home.  I will have to back track and get a picture next week.  

Anyone else having trouble with Bloglovin'?  I was reading along this morning and a window popped up asking me to sign in.  Wasn't I already signed in?  I never log in or out...just open the app and read all the newest posts in my feed.  So, since I never log in I had to request a new password...which I got...but when I logged in it was like I was brand new to the app.  All my blogs were gone.  Was there an update that just needs to fix it?  Boy, I hate it when something's is working so well then some mysterious gremlin ruins it.

  1. Oh, I just love this finish, Pam!! What a lot of love and patience went into that one ;) And your little chalkboard piece is darling as well.

    Not having trouble with Bloglovin, but did you know your blog's layout doesn't seem quite right? Your sidebar features are running right down through the middle of your photos. Maybe it will take getting home and using something else besides your iPad to fix it... (Just wanted to give you a heads up, in case you didn't know).

    Are you sure you want to come home--it's flurrying here as I write this :( Safe travels!
