Things being what they always seem to be when you make a plan, that plan changed in a hurry! The son and the FDIL had a big fight the night before and she decided to forgo our company, sticking us with her $50 ticket in the process. Being the tight-fisted fiscal conservative that I am, I said no way we are wasting a ticket, and the others involved were only too happy to use my beer tickets!!
We had a great time!! The weather was nice, the event was in a tent so we were warm, the beer drinkers had lots of brewers and different brews to chose from. There was music, New Orleans themed food, and of course, the people watching was unmatched by anywhere I have ever been, including New Orleans down on Bourbon Street!!
So, not much stitching was done over that weekend. I did manage to get SOME done though. I made a good start on Serenity Harbor. I have the first part finished now but for the weekend report, I only managed the left side within the allotted time. I have enjoyed this stitch so much and if you haven't joined this SAL, I highly recommend it!

Once I got that finished, I pulled out an oldie but goodie and in going back through my posts, I don't think I have worked on this since last August. I am currently referring to this as the Headless Bird Sampler. lol

I still haven't started either of the Scarlet Letter SALs I have signed up for yet so I need to get moving on those asap. Can't linger for too long on one piece!! I also haven't touched the 3 pieces I carried over from last year yet. As you can tell, I don't have the rotation worked out yet, just taking it as the mood strikes. But, I'm not bored yet either and I feel like I'm making progress. That's a good thing!!
So that's it for me for today. Thank you all for stopping by and I want to welcome my new readers. It's nice to know I'm not out here in cyberspace alone!!
Hope you're all enjoying your stitching as much as I am, Laura
