Good news! I have found the border I want to use for my Neighborhood stitch! I really thought I had this chart in my stash but after digging through several times over and not finding it I just added it to my order list! It is all starting to come together in my mind now. I was going to put the alphabet in the border but that just wouldn't look right in the border I chose to use so I plan to "tuck" portions of the alphabet all through out the neighborhood! I will begin to order the few charts I still need very soon.
Tuesday, I got my hair trimmed up and began to pack for our mini get away to the coast of NC! We haven't been there (by ourselves) since the first few years of our marriage when we were still a twosome instead a busy family of four! Returning again as a twosome seemed to make this perfect anniversary trip!
I finished up Good Times the night before we left and it felt so good to put that last stitch in. Since I had no WIPs to speak of, I left my stitching at home while we were gone! I just love it when we are able to get away! It totally de-stresses me and I come home feeling calm and cleansed!
Since it was just the two of us, we got to re-visit many of the spots we had enjoyed before plus see a lot of new ones. It was a slow comfortable vacation instead of those wild "gotta see and do everything" family vacations when the boys were little! I will spare you all a super duper long post and just share bits and pieces of our trip (along with pictures) over the course of the next week or so!
