I have stitched the last broad chain filling on the Fair Maiden needle roll!
I'm not sure if it's because I've had so little time to stitch in the last week, or whether it was just desperation to get this part done so I can start the fun stuff, but I came home from work today, threaded up a needle and did not put it down again until all the little "fingers" were filled in.
Now I can stitch in all the pretty flowers and leaves--I am dancing a happy dance!
Now to the non-stitching part of the blog. We travelled to visit The Big Kid, his wife, and The Flash this past week-end. We did all the stuff we always do when we visit, we had a wonderful time with The Flash (although he announced he didn't like Grampa because Grampa tickled him but that he would love Grampa again when he stopped tickling), and we have plans for a family excursion at the end of the summer. I did not stitch while we were gone, although I packed several projects. I took a nap instead.
It was needed.
