 This weekend I went to a big car show in Gas City, IN.  Ducktails.
 We spent the whole day there.  Thousand of cars to look at.
 Saw this one driving down the road.
And I had 2 days off this week so I got quite a bit done this week.  1000 stitches done.  I had to have a colonoscopy so I spent Thursday not eating and stitching and then Friday after the procedure I kept stitching.  I still have 14 vacation days to use up before the end of the year.  I am thinking about just taking days here and there and staying home and stitching on this project.  I want to finish page 6 before the end of the year.

 I finally started a new project - Butterfly Fairies Night by Lanarte.  I am stitching it on 28 ct Antique White over 2.  Here is my progress since I started on 9/11/14.
I will be rotating between my two large projects.  I want to kit up some smaller quicker pieces so I will have some finishes next year.  Meanwhile I hope with only 2 projects for the rest of the year that I will make some good progress.

 I have finally had another finish and this is also the only stitching I have done since last month.
Jump for Joy is finished.  Also have a picture of the whole thing that I want to finish off into a wall hanging.  I have another project kitted and ready to start.  I just need to find the time to start.

This month we are supposed to talk about our favorite person to stitch for.  Over the years I have made members of my family pictures and only my mother seemed to appreciate them and take an interest in what I was working on.  So I have stopped stitching for others and keep most of the projects for my self.  They are in a large box in my closet waiting to be framed or finished into something else.  I enjoy the stitching process and never get around to having them framed/finished.
