Yesterday D#1 and I spent the day together. We planned to go to Lititz, PA for the largest craft show (700 vendors) on the east coast but alas, we ran amok. We started the day early with a great breakfast out, visited Fireside stitchery in Fraser, PA and then hit a bunch of consignment shops before managing a visit to The Container Store. We ended with a fun stop at the Trolley Car Cafe and their ice cream stand. Yum. Back at her house I managed an hour of stitching while she sorted fat quarters by color to store in her new containers....poor baby thinks she can tame her stash......I was not going to squash her spirit. Craft show or not, we always have lots of laughs and fun together.
I drug along Corsica River, protected for the road trip in a king sized pillow case. For stitching, I have made great progress on Corsica River this week. I am not yet up to the current assignment but I am still really happy with the progress. Another two weeks like this and I think I can finish this row. That thought is nice but the execution is doubtful. ((remember my wallpaper removal project to work an hour a week that has gone the wayside and the quilt a seam-a-day project?))

I am also close to the final stitches in my Longaberger apple basket. The back stitch is actually harder than I was anticipating as I have a mass of threads on the back side due to the 'confetti' stitches throughout the basket. I am not sure how I want to finish this one. Frame it, make a flat fold, make it a pillow and use it on a project bag......hmmmm...tbd
This week I will be getting ready for a visit from my son and his family. Thank goodness for FaceTime that we use in between visits! I need to get the beds made up, stow my crafts, get the dog crate out and do major grocery shop. So that's what up in my little corner of the USA.
Have a great week, thanks for stopping by and happy stitching all!
