So long time no post, I know. It's that whole life thing, it kind of got in the way again. Too much summer fun, work and assorted other stuff. Oh, and stitching too. I have actually been getting some of that done. I'm down to just the borders (and all the beading) in Celtic Autumn.
Celtic Autumn 6/23/11

I'm pretty happy with my progress. I think I can still get it done by Grandma's birthday. She knows about it, just hasn't seen it yet. It would be nice to take her to pick the frame around her birthday though and treat her to a little birthday stash too since she also stitches.
Besides the stitching we've been getting ready for vacation in a few weeks. I think we've finally got all our reservations made and plans finalized, now we just have to wait a few more long weeks. I'm really excited, it's been so long since we've had a real vacation and this will be our first real family vacation too. We've been on a couple quick overnight trips but nothing like this. It should be a lot of fun.
That's about it for now. I'll try and make it back a little sooner next time.

She's really beautiful, Sara. I'm glad you're having some summer fun. I need more of that myself!

Your stitching looks great. This is a wonderful design that I hope to be able to stitch sometime. Your grandma will love it especially since she stitches she will appraciate all the work that goes into creating such a beautiful piece.

Absolutely gorgeous - I really want to stitch this, in the autumnal colour way. Your Grandma will love it, I am sure! Have a lovely holiday
