Good morning!

I got up early because the roofers were supposed to be here at 8:00 am and it is now 10:24 and - no roofers. I have gotten a lot done, however.

I am leaving Wednesday to FLY to Minneapolis to visit my wonderful son. I haven't seen him since Christmas, and I have NEVER flown, so...double excitement. I called the airlines and asked about knitting or cross-stitching on the airplane. They were sort of vague about x-stitching, but I think I can. Anyway, I have been working hard on my 1826 Sampler trying to get as much of it done in half-cross so that I can just cross the stitches without needing a pattern. I should probably explain that the entire sampler is done in dark navy, except for a few touches of dk. red.

I am taking my digital camera, ipod, and new cellphone with me so that my son can show me how to use some of the special features. When I return, I should be able to post pictures of my sampler, as well as some other WIPs.
I also hope to acquire some new stash! I have been researching needlework shops in Minn. and there is actually one about 4 blocks from son's home. How cool is that! I figure that I can explore and shop while he is at work.

I will be returning on the 26th - hopefully with a lot done on the sampler and pictures and stories to share.

Keep smiling!

Hi Jane!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your kind comments!

The Chevron Scarf is from the book "Last Minute Knitted Gifts" by Joelle Hoverson (I think is her name). There's a group on Flickr where a lot of people have posted photos of theirs. Check it out - there are some really great ones!
