Mercury Done

I sat down and finished this on Sunday. Now it's ready to mail off to somewhere else to get the second planet stitched. I've gotten so used to even numbers of strands while stitching that it was hard for me to stitch with three strands. They're harder to lay flat. There are some bumps in this, but it's going to be seen from a distance anyway.

Planetary Progress

I really want to finish this and put it in the mail before I leave a week from tomorrow. Unfortunately for my stitching, I've been doing everything from making up kissing pillows to writing a newsletter to picking up beanie babies (don't ask). It's been really hard to find time to stitch these past couple of weeks. I'll find time to do this. I have to!

New Start - Celestial Spheres

I joined another round robin, and after I joined, I found out it had to be on Aida so ... I dug this kit out of my stash. It's a Mary Hickmott pattern and is of the nine planets, on 14 count black Aida. My husband will love it. I'm hoping people will each stitch one planet and I will do the other four. The first mailing date is June first, so I have quite a bit to do. This planet I'm starting is Mercury. Eventually, the stitching is nearly five feet across, but only eight inches from top to bottom.
