Stitch, Stitch, and then do some more......

Say Good Bye to the afghan. I just can't do any more.  I have already done more than a normal year.  I had hoped to do block fifteen and do the border half way down but sadly I had to give up for now.

I also have some new floss. DMC Coloris.  Charts and such to play with.  

So I wanted to work on something smaller and try out the new lap stand.  So, dear Stitchers, I went from 18 count to 32 count.  I feel a bit cross eyed but progress is being made.

From my stitching chair, I managed to procure a wagon for camp.  Isn't it perfect, cute and absolutely what I wanted?  Thanks to my brother Butch for keeping an eye out for me.  

And my brother is working on my Daddy's chair. I broke into tears when I saw the picture.  I so remember that chair.  Not only with my Dad, but also with my husband,  it was Jacks chair when he was in Bolton.  And soon it will be at camp.  It may need new springs, and it will get new cushions.  I can't wait. Don't you see a stitching stand utilizing the hole in the arm?

Your afghan is stunning Taffy. Where did you get the new floss from?

You have made super progress on your afghan. Your LK piece looks good. I am glad your Dad's chair is going to be fixed and take a spot at camp.
