I'm leaving!

And we're off! Tomorrow, that is, to Charlotte, North Carolina to visit my daughter Kelly for a few days. I was surprised with an early Mother's Day gift from Carrie with 2 airplane tickets, one for each of us. I'm so excited to be going away and visiting with Kelly and Chris. And of course , we'll have to manage to get in a little shopping here and there :-D

I have to add in a stitching update, although I still don't feel like I'm making much progress on anything. I guess that's what happens when you in the middle of a honking big project like this one. Sorry no photos, its a dark gloomy day and I have several lights on in the house even though its morning.

Here is Love with a Capital L, 7 weeks after starting.
Its coming though and I have to remind myself I'm almost at the halfway point! And I am enjoying stitching this, I love not changing floss colours over and over again.

Have a great weekend! I'll be back at the end of next week.

Love is looking so great, you're making wonderful progress. With it being so large though it must feel like it is taking forever. Congratulations being just about at the halfway point, that should feel like an accomplishment. Have a wonderful time on your trip, I hope the weather is perfect for you and your flight and everything else go smoothly.
