Time for some serious stitching

Pulling all our yard signs
We won at City Hall!  After nine grueling months, the city council voted 9-2 to phase short-term rental type 2s, mini-hotels out of residential zones!  Woohoo!  I am itching to be stitching.  What shall I stitch on after I get through that mountain of ironing?

Kelly Clark Sampler is coming along

I tried several stitches on the house and didn't like any of them.  I am stitching the background in Woven Plait using two strands of Mandarin Floss.  I like it.

My Children are Awesome

My children gave me a gift certificate to The Needle Works.  I bought this yesterday and settled down to stitch the band at the bottom.

Coming Home by Ewe and Eye

After a long nap today, I pulled this out.  I am so close and it is such a beautiful canvas.  Struggled along...
