A Finish and TUSAL

 I finally finished Butterfly Fairy Day   I started this on on 11/13/09 and finished it up Friday night 9/14/12.  This was my first time stitching a large project on evenweave. I did get off a stitch somewhere in the beginning but by the end of the project I was having no problem stitching on this fabric. I have the fabric for the companion piece - Butterfly Fairy Night.  I am not sure I am going to add it to my rotation right away.  I might wait awhile and see if any of my other projects jump ahead of it.
 It is time for TUSAL again.  Here are my orts.  Most of the new threads are from backstitching Butterfly Fairy Day and Autumn Angel which is also in the home stretch.
I have moved on to the next project in my rotation - In the Garden.  But just couldn't get into it last night.  Hope to have more stitchy motivation today.

Weather was perfect yesterday.  I had a cookout at my Dad's house for my family.  A good time was had by all.  This week I will spend two days with my sister hiking at Turkey Run State Park, our annual trip together.  So I need to spend some extra time at work getting things done.  Hoping the beautiful weather will last.
