Travel Stitching

Hello blog friends.
I'm back from Gainesville (since 10:30PM Thursday to be exact). Friday I had to work super early so no stitching possible. This Saturday I finished my blog reading (and commenting) yay! Finally, I'm able to give you some update (on) which one I brought along. It wasn't "For the Record" nor "Prairie Stars," it was this:
 I was in a great bright spot and little niece was busy doing her own thing (Pokemon Go among others).
 Five hours of travel yielded lots of progress, right?
And on the night of the 17th I got as far as this (I hope you can see the paper's date):
I, unfortunately, didn't have enough of Rum Raisin. I'm still weighing if I should buy another batch or finish it with DMC 154.
Anyway, what else have we done while waiting for Big Niece' orientation to end? Since it's little niece' first time to go around town with us, we couldn't pass up on the Butterfly Museum (actually I wanted to see them again!)
She enjoyed seeing the stages and was excited seeing how the people do these mounting, see for yourself:
 And some things I haven't shown from my first trip in UF's Natural Museum:
 Little niece posed with the "Jellyfish" (if you know her history with this one...remember the bookmark I stitched for her?)
And of course I had to take this picture to say this is the end of my post. There's another museum next time!

Thanks for visiting. Happy Stitching!


  1. This project gets more and more beautiful the more you stitch on it. I just love it.
    Thanks for sharing the pictures from the museum.

  2. Fantastic stitching update!
    Looks like you had a very productive trip all round :)

  3. Your stitching is looking lovely .
    Great photos thanks for sharing .

  4. Nice progress and love your museum pics.


  5. Great work on your travelling project. I say buy the rum raisin and some icecream to match!
    Another great museum too.

  6. I love the colours in your sampler - you must get the rum and raisin so that it all matches!

  7. Your stitching is looking beautiful !! :)

  8. Beautiful progress! Love your museum pics. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Wow, you did so well with your stitching on the go! I myself find it difficult to focus on my stitching if I can't be at home in my sofa with my own stuff around me:) So these days I only bring crochet projects if I'm going to do crafts away from home.

    I'm hoping to make a start on 'And to all a good night' this week! I've been doing crochet around the clock for so long now that I'm beginning to long for some aida and DMC threads for a change:) Of course I have the PS Santas to finish too, so you can take your time making a start on our next SAL project lol. I know for a fact that you are going to finish yours faster than I will mine, so I need to make a head start:)))

    Greetings from Sweden!

  10. Looks like fun! Great progress as well :)
