Progress!

Over the weekend I made a really good dent in my Mary Queen of Scots bookmark. Also on Thursday night I finished the over-one lettering on the large Sampler! That was certainly a job. Just like backstitch on Castle. (Those of you who know Teresa Wentzler's designs and leave their backstitch until the end really know what I'm talking about.) So this week I'm going to concentrate on the sampler and see just how much I can get done. I think I'm going to skip out on faire again this weekend. I believe this is the weekend that my daughter's boyfriend is coming up to visit. He's going to meet her friends and hang out and if I'm not mistaken, some of Dad's family too. I don't think they'll be at the house much, but I should probably be home.

And now I have a designing job to do. I have a picture that I want to turn into a cross stitch chart. I just need to decide if I need to do a lot of detail or not. This is going to be interesting!
