And it looks like there's a floating dot for no apparent reason between the P and the l in the word Play (kind of underneath them). It's not as random as it looks - it's a dot over an I in one of the words below - it just happened that it was actually closer to the P and L than it is to the I it floats above, so I decided to stitch it while I was doing those letters.
Now this week I'm back to Angel of Cross Stitch...there will be lots of sighing because it's time to do the border. I vowed I was going to do the border a little at a time but....the best laid plans, as they say!!!
Thanks for checking out my blog, and, as usual, for all your comments!

Had a busy end of the week....Friday got a phone call from a friend of mine...long story, she needed someone to look after her granddaughter for a couple of hours because her (friend's) grandmother-in-law was back in the hospital after only a couple days at home.....so a few hours of running around to get her and drop her back off, etc.......
Saturday we watched football, and then went to my brother's 50th birthday. It was fun! My other brother hosted a Texas Hold'Em tournament (I didn't play, but Mike did) and we ate a bunch of my brother's favorite things. His wife is awesome, so it was very nice!
Today more football.....and more relaxation.......
Now this week I'm working on Lizzie Kate's ABC Lessons - a MUCH easier project thatn this one! LOL

Well, I think I said I was going to turn over a new leaf and stay on top of my blogging this year...oh well! I took the picture on Sunday, I just forgot to post it in here! LOL
I spent a week stitching away on my ABC Christmas by Lizzie Kate - this is a fun stitch. It was a kit (well, came with the pattern and the floss, had to buy your own fabric). I love the colors and the overdyed floss. Not sure what I'll do with it when it's done, but I love it! LOL
Thanks for checking out my blog - this week I'm stitching on Frederick the Literate - big change as far as the "challenge" level - stitching on black with dark colors! LOL But it's another fun one.

Here's the whole picture as it stands right now. It's pretty big - I took the picture on top of a folding TV tray, and it pretty much covers the whole top of it. It's a magazine pattern from an issue of Cross Stitch Gold - I think it was in 2008, but I don't remember what month. It's my "big" travel project. I stitch on it at lunch time at work, or if I'm somewhere stitching that I have a table I can use - it's too big otherwise! I really like the colors - kind of a combo of pastels and bolder colors. Lots of backstitching still to do after I'm done with the regular stitching.
Thanks for checking it out!

So, I'll put this away for three weeks while I rotate on my other three projects. And then I'll tackle the rest of the border!
Thanks for checking out my blog, and thanks for all the comments!!
