After spending most of the day attending a dance recital for my nieces Caitlin and Erin, and then off with my family to a steakhouse for a bit of fun, I was able to then spend a little bit of time this evening working on Part 9 of MTM. Taking the plunge again - it feels like I was only just working on Part 8 of this project :-) Oh well, nearing the end now and going to hold my head up and get through it. This is put away now until Wednesday due to SAL commitments. I figure that Judi is probably about half done with this part already, and by the time I pick it up again on Wednesday she will be completely done. I think she stitches this one in her sleep... But I will get mine done this month too, but at my own pace with tons of other projects also getting their fair share of attention.
There have been some questions about my Women of the Mayflower. So, I will answer them here. Anne asked what fabric I am using - it is a Silweaver 36 ct Edinburgh Solo... Leslie asked about the threads - yes, I am using the Olde Willow Stitchery floss that is called for in the chart, but mine appear to be lighter than those in the model, except for the boat... that color is much darker. Such is how it goes with hand dyed threads, right?
Well, maybe there will be photos from today's family event. Mike took some, and I just have to go through them and see if they are useable LOL!!
Oh - thanks to those who wished Ryan Newman luck today - I have not watched the recording of the race, but according to the website he came in 14th :-( Not a good season for Ryan this year...
