New Start!!!!

 Okay!  So this past week was New Start SAL, and you know I was waiting for this one!  I finally got to start Catfish, and it was a joy to stitch.  I got about 16 10X10 boxes done in one week.  Really speedy for me.  Here he is: 
The red box shows exactly where I am stitching on the chart, I started in the middle.

This weekend starts the Retired Artists SAL, so you know who will be coming out to play! (Can you guess?)  I most likely won't be able to stitch a lot.  My SIL is coming down to stay for the week.  I'm off all week, and we plan to spend the week lounging at the pool, girl time.  We are calling it "girls behaving badly week".  We are going to drink too much wine, play cards, not cook, etc.  A real vacation!  I told DH he has to fend for himself for the week.  

Have a great stitchy week!

Oh Louanne what a cool chart! Somehow I missed this one on the HAED website. I bet it feels fantastic stitching it with silks too!!! I absolutely can't wait to see your progress on this one especially.

The "girls behaving badly week" sounds awesome, what a blast! I don't need to say have a great time cos I know you will. Make us girls proud and be as bad as you can! LOL!
