What a trip! We drove over 3000 miles, passed through 13 different states and took over 400 photos of the beauty of America. I love this country, but have a much better appreciation of how lucky I am to live here after seeing what a lovely country we have and the freedom to just drive, and drive, and drive some more. The boys had a great time and were very good the whole trip. Hobbie (my husband) and I are very lucky to have such well-behaved young men. We camped 6 of the eight nights and stayed in hotels the last two. Overall, it was such a wonderful vacation.
I did do some stitching. I completed a new project I purchased at Shakespeare's Peddler just before we left. It is HIH's Study Hard. Since I am an instructor at JCJC, I thought this would be great to hang in my office.
I also completed C and D in the Erica Michael's freebie series. I selected DMC colors to substitute for the RG threads and think they look really nice. I can't wait to complete the entire alphabet and make the sampler book.
Finally, I worked on a piece by Paula Vaughan. I love violets and the color purple. This piece is coming along slowly, but I think it will be so beautiful when I finish. The fabric is a solo piece from Silkweaver. The colors are perfect for the piece. I can't wait to finish it and hang it in my craft room. Speaking of which, I have to share some photos of my room soon.
It seems that I have missed quite a bit in the past week. I hope to catch up with reading all of my favorite blogs and making comments. I also need to check in with RR and exchange groups on yahoo. I have two notices in my mailbox for packages, so I assume these are from the yahoo groups. Of course, I have to wait until tomorrow to see.
