Stitch-N-Pitch 2008

Last night was "Stitch-N-Pitch" night for the DC Nationals. It's a collaboration between Major League Baseball & The National Needlearts Association promoting all forms of needle arts (cross stitch, embroidery, knit, crochet etc). For stitchers, it's a great night to grab your project and head to the stadium for a night of stitching & fellowship. And what a long night it was........ the game went into 14 (yes - fourteen) innings! I brought along a knitting project but the goodie bags were full of great cross stitch freebies too:
That Nationals chart will be great on a handtowel or pillow for some Christmas gifts. My cross stitching has slowed down quite a bit due to vision problems - old age is catching up with me (lol)! Nothing an eye doctor and bifocals (ugh) can't remedy. Have made a little more progress on Prayer Tree and in a recent visit to In Stitches, I picked up the new M Design's Family Tree. Would love to do this entire series on an afghan.....
