Work, Travel, Stitching

That's the order of things these last few weeks. Went down to New Orleans for biz travel for about a week and then on up to Ohio to visit my oldest daughter for the July 4th holiday. This is the piece I worked on in the airports and on planes. It's a kit named "Pansies" from Designs for the Needle. The chart has "Friends are Flowers in the Garden of Life" stitched in the center but, I'm revising it as a wedding sampler for a friend that got married a little while ago. Knowing my track record, it will be done just in time for the first anniversary. One more flower in the right bottom corner, then on to the names & date in the center. I also took along this chart from Julie Hasler's Fantasy Cross Stitch book I found on eBay. It's an unusual Aquarius zodiac sign design. A fantastic piece but lots of color changes so I only worked on it in the hotel & daughter's apartment. Promise to post WIP pics very soon.

Deb, I have the Julie Hassler book too, I love the zodiac series in it, I look forward to seeing your WIP. I keep meaning to do one for my DH for his birthday.

Those pansies are beautiful-one of my favorite flowers. Can't wait to see your WIP.
