Almost Finished!!!!

Here is my latest progress on Egyptian Sampler!  I feel like I can say it’s almost finished!!! Since this picture was taken, I’ve stitched the color block border and the corner block and am just backstitching  those before I finish the papyrus in the center part of the border.

Most of my stitching is done over the weekends, but with the advent of spring, we’ve been busy doing Expos to support my husband’s business. My last finish, the butterfly, was stitched in a car and hotel room.  This is the busy season for expos with another really huge show this weekend. 

I haven’t decided whether I’ll take this with me this weekend for stitching in the evening or if I’ll take another small kit that fits in my purse.

Snack Stitching

A friend of mine coined the term Snack Stitching to be small project to as a break from stitching on larger pieces. Even though my Egyptian Sampler is nearly finished, I was traveling a couple of weeks ago and grabbed this little mill hill kit and brought it with me. The kit came with a magnet that I hot glued to the back and stuck on my fridge 


I ran out of 931 while stitching (my own fault) and my husband, who understands my goal-oriented nature, stopped at a Michaels while we were out of town to  get a single skein so I could finish up the cross stitching.   He is the best!

I love it and beads used are very sparkly in real life. 🦋
