Page one of the mini has been completed. I was worried that she would lose too much of her detail, but I'm happy to say this isn't the case. I'm extremely happy with the outcome.
Well I am back from my cruise and am happy to say that I did get a bit of stitching done. There was a group of knitters/stitchers (although I was the only stitcher this cruise) who met on days we were at sea. It was nice to sit with a group of ladies and see all of their projects. Although there was one morning where people were coming up to me and saying I was famous and had been highlighted on the ships daily show that morning. As I had tied one on pretty hard at the pub the night before in a good old fashioned sing-a-long, my first thought ran to that, in a not so good, oh my god, what are they saying I did kind of way. But it turns out some sneaky camera person had filmed me with my magnifier glasses and my iPad that has my .pdf, stitching with the knitting ladies and mentioned it.
I was both relieved and a little proud of that. That day I had a few stitching ladies come down to ask me about the iPad and how to upload projects to it. So it was nice to both meet new people and show them some of my tricks.
I also had a nice little stitching nook out on our balcony. Pina Colada, great view, audio book, and my stitching. Is this not the very description of paradise?
But alas, I have returned home to snow, and the plague that I'm sure I caught off the person sitting next to me on the plane. There is a winter storm blowing in and I'm going to just snuggle under a blanket and alternate between stitching and napping.
