I finally finished Gathering Honey on 10/19/09. There was alot of backstitching and french knots. I have moved on to the next project in my rotation, Freight Train. I now have 2 open slots in my rotation and will be adding 2 more starts when they come up.
Saturday I went to Ball State to visit my daughter. Went to the Dean's List ceremony and watched her get an award. Her grandparents also made a surprise visit. Their first time on campus. They seemed to have a good time in spite of being against her going to college.
Then I drove home and attended my neice's 16th birthday party. I had a full day Saturday as I didn't get home from the birthday party until 10:30pm. I had a nice visit with my brother and sister-in-law and their 9 kids.
I hadn't stitched in a week and picked Gathering Honey back up Sunday and finished it up Monday (had the day off). I am still using up vacation time.

I worked on more backstitching on Gathering Honey this past week. I am so close to a finish that I will continue working on it until it is done. I am saving all of the french knots for last. I am in the process of kitting up more new starts. I now have 11 designs in the kitting up stages. I need to find some smaller projects as these will all take awhile and I might not have any finishes for years.
