Put away isn't very accurate though. It was on one of my lap frames, on the top of a bookcase in our bedroom and I know he saw it there every day. He never said anything about it but I am sure he wondered about all the other things that were getting finished and why the piece that he knew was for him wasn't.
After my friend's visit in October I got it back down to finish. I know it is only 272 words but it is a large piece of cross-stitch! About 2 weeks ago, I noticed that the date of the address was November 19th so I really pushed to get it done by that date. How cool would that be to put in the last stitches on the 150th anniversary of the address??!!
I've worked on it to the exclusion of everything else, with the exception of an ornament I've been carrying to stitch group, and I met my goal of finishing it last night!!

Now, of course, it is on to the next thing! I have a Christmas gift piece to get done (working it on 50 ct. to see how it goes because I have a much larger piece I would like to do on the 50 ct.) as well as a few ornaments by the middle of December. Then I think it is back to Ann Bowers which I hope I can wrap up by the end of the year. Tall hopes, I know, since you really can't count on December for any stitching time!!
But we will see! Hope your stitching is moving along too, Laura
