I’m leaving tomorrow for a week of vacation. I’m visiting upstate NY, where my parents and I have rented a camp on Lake George. So, we’ll be doing lots of outdoor stuff and visiting with my grandparents and other relatives.
Of course, I’ve started a small travel project to take along with me. I’ll be stitching M Designs Celtic Letter “H”. I started it last weekend and did a little more last night. I’m using waterlilies on this, and am trying to think about how I want the color changes to flow… I’ve kind of figured out most of what directions I’ll stitch in. I’m sure I’ll be happy with it regardless as I like the design and the colors I’m using. Anyway this makes a good travel project as I only have to carry around one skein of floss with me. I think this will keep me plenty busy.
I have done a bit more of the border on Alpine Seasons. I’m pretty certain that when I finish this section, I’m going to work on the mountain scenery in the upper left hand corner. I really like doing the geometric borders and I can see that I might burn out on the mountain stuff as it looks like some pretty heavy counting. I figure the next section of fun border can be my reward for finishing a section of mountains. I took this approach when I did TW’s English Garden Welcome, except the center part was my reward for all of the confetti and backstitching in the rose border:

Anyway, I hope everyone has a good week and a nice holiday weekend….
