Here it is. Finished. And it took less than an hour to complete. In fact, after I took the last stitch I kept looking around to see where I needed to stitch next. I was so close to the trees that I saw no forest at all. This is a bit too big for an ornament, so I will need to get this framed.
No, I did not sleep Tuesday night. I just stayed up until the taxi came at 4:45 am and even then I wasn't quite finished with all I needed to do . The plane to San Francisco was not too full and we left early. SFO was covered in fog. I always forget how cold it seems when the weather feels damp and clammy. My lack of sleep caught up with me, though, and I went right to sleep and didn't wake up until my husband came home from his doctor's appointment at 2 pm. I got up and got my hair done, had a lovely fish dinner, and came back to the city. Although I don't get to San Francisco as often as I used to, this is not a sightseeing visit. It is pretty much just a stopover to break up the travel from Las Vegas to Maui. Though as long as we are here, we are going to try a new San Francisco restaurant, Frisson.
Before I left, I did kit up the opossum and the chipmunk from the Cross Wings set of Feed the Hungry. My mother-in-law feeds several opossums and chipmunks every evening. I'm sure she will like these ornaments. So those are my next projects. I should have plenty of time to finish at least one of them in Maui. And you should hear all about them because I have joined National Blog Posting Month. Members vow to post on their blogs every day in November. I even created a Stitching Group. If anyone else is part of NaBloPoMo and stitches, please join us here.
