I did work on the train a week ago.  Didn't get much stitiching done.  I am working so many hours that I just come home and fall asleep.  Next up in the rotation was Garden Seed Packets.  I am working on the Morning Glory square.  Love the colors in this one.

We have had so much rain here.  I am still waiting for my yard to dry out to mow it.  We had another rainstorm last night.  So it might not dry out till tomorrow.  Tomorrow's forecast is for sun and high in the 90's.

While I am waiting for my grass to dry today, I will be stitching while watching the Indy 500 and Coca Cola 600.

I am scheduled to get my hair cut Wednesday after work.  I haven't been to a beauty shop for a haircut since I was 5.  I am finally ready to get rid of my long braid.  I have very thin hair so I am leaving it up to the beautician to find a style that will work for me.

Here is progress on my new start.  It is Wintertime by Cathy Livingston.  I have already stitched Autumn (hanging at my parents house), Spring (hanging at my In-Laws house) and Summer which is hanging at my house.  I didn't get alot done as stitching time was limited.

Stencil Alphabet is finished.    This is from Cross Country Stitching Alphabets issue Spring 2000.  I started it on 11/28/10 and finished it on 5/4/11.

I have a busy travel weekend - Friday going to Muncie to pick up DD from college.  Sunday leave for Sandusky to drop her off at her summer job. 

Next up in my rotation is a new start which I might wait to start until Sunday night at the hotel.  I might spend these extra days getting fabric cut and hemmed for the project that will take this spot in my rotation.

Here are my orts.  I also added a picture of the container I dump the little glass in each month.  I made it thru all of the projects in my rotation.  Still stitching alot of greens and blacks.

I have been working on Stencil Alphabet.  I have finished all of the cross stitching and just the back stitching is left.  I am going to continue working on this one until it is finished.

Work is still busy and I either go in early or stay late.  In April I only managed to read 3 books which is really low for me.  I have been reading The Bear and the Dragon by Tom Clancy for 3 weeks now.  It is 1,000+ pages and it takes awhile to get to the good parts.

This is another busy week.  DH has quite a few doctor appointments (which means I ride the bus) and I will be off Friday to pick up DD from college.

I do hope to get this piece finished this week.
