Sailing on the Mayflower

I couldn't even begin to think of what I wanted to stitch on tonight, but one of the projects right next to me was Women of the Mayflower so I grabbed it! The other was Paradigm Lost, but that is a Tuesday night project, exclusively... So.... not a ton of progress tonight, as I spent some time learning the proper counting rhythm for the diagonal satin stitch of the ship - but I got it now :-)

I wanted to thank everyone for your wonderful comments on Harvest Moon. I don't think the photo in yesterday's entry does it any justice... for those who asked, the mats I ordered are by Jill Rensel, who designs mats for Shepherd's Bush. You can see what they look like in the photo here. I love the cut-out stars.
OK, here is another daylily from Mike's recent garden photo gallery - today's choice, El Desperado (with insect visitor)...

I am now on a four day break from work - nice :-)

Stitched on today: Women of the Mayflower

I just noticed I missed your post! Harvest Moon is stunning, despite the 'poor quality' of your picture. Mike's photo's of your lilies are fabulous, by the way. Enjoy your long weekend!
