I am not finding a lot of time to stitch with all the car shows.  I have started 2 pieces since the Fair and am at least making progress albeit slow.

This is At Our House by Lizzie Kate.  This has always been a favorite verse and can't wait to have it stitched and framed to hang in my house.  I'm stitching this on a piece of 45 count L.L. Vintage Light Exemplar.  I was using the called for colors right up until the white would not show up on the fabric.  I've substituted DMC 3685 which is a shade of red.

I have also restarted - yes I said restarted - Mirabilia's Gathering Eggs.  I was 1/3 of the way done stitching 2 over 2 on 28 count but didn't like the look of it.  I am now stitching it 1 over 2 on a piece of 40 count dirty linen using the called for threads.  I like it so much better.  Can't wait to find more time to work on it.

My friend, Harriet and I found time on Friday for one last visit before moving from their town home.  We had so much catching up to do that the time just flew by.  Looking forward to our next visit in her new home.
