Almost a finish!

I finished my Anna sampler...I think!
By that I mean that I did at least half a stitch to complete the sampler. Now I have to go back over and finish the areas where I did not do a complete stitch. Now I can take it in the car this weekend or even outside and finish it without the pattern.
I somehow made a mistake and am kicking myself as I write this :-(

Vierlanden Anna Sampler

Well I am finally in Oklahoma, unpacked and relaxing and settling in. I was finally reunited with my stitching bag and have been faithfully plugging away at my Anna sampler. Can't wait to finish and get it and Mary Wigham framed.

Road project

I am finally in the hotel on my way to Oklahoma. The movers came and went and with them my stitching bag with my current project! I was so upset when I realized that. I was so busy with everything else and making sure I had everything set aside for the road trip that I forgot to add the bag to those items even though it was prepped and ready. I was desperate enough to get a kit or something at Michaels. Surprise surprise, one store is phasing out and the other never carried needlework kits. So in my desperate state I managed to buy some idea, some DMC 498 , cheapy scissors and needles and printed off "Hornbooks stitcher" freechart by AMAP. What you see is my hotel project. Can't wait to get to Oklahoma, unpack and get to my stitchy bag!!
