I turned the corner!!! Yippee Skippy!! That lawn mower thing is the wire used to tie the yellow and red fly. I am thrilled to be around the corner and now I will work toward the middle. Once I get to the middle, I may, may work on some back stitching. I really don't plan to leave all of it until the end.
Meanwhile Jody (our mail lady) brought me some packages. Barnes & Nobel has a great clearance sale on Vera Bradley things. I have the tech bag and the pen N pencil set. Then Mom & Me Forever had the Sweetheart Tree things I was looking for and the last of the buttons and the charts for the Sam Sarah piece. Oh - someday I will stitch it all.
