Slow but sure

   I've been working on Ann Grimshaw this past week. I am surprised by how slowly this alphabet section seems to be going since letters usually work up so fast.  I guess when the line is 13 inches long on 40 ct. it does tend to take a while.  Not to mention that watching tennis while stitching really slows things down!!
Her she is in her latest incarnation:

  I was going to work her in rotation with about 5 other things that need to be finished but I just don't know if I can do it.  I have never worked that way before and yes I know that's the whole point of SALs.  I usually work on something until I have to move on to something else with a fast approaching deadline or until I hit a wall with it and just can't stand to work on it for another minute! But I really want to get this one finished! She's about 3/4 done now and I can see her being finished by the end of the month. Sure would be nice to add another finish to the list!
  Okay then, its settled! I work on Ann 'til the bitter end.  Hopefully not past the end of the month!
Until then, keep on stitching!  Laura
