Dear Jane and Mystic Stitch

Here is my progress...

Nothing seems to be moving very fast but I am enjoying each piece as I work on it. 
Our increased social schedule has cut into my stitching time, but it is lovely to be making new friends and going out more. 
We had a gang in for the Daytona 500 yesterday. I lost money in both pools but was not sorry to see Joey Lugano win. Is going tohave find a new driver  to cheer for next year when my guy Jeff Gordon retires.

Rotation is working

I just finished my third 4 day  rotation  with Ella's stocking. It is coming along fabulously and as you can see, I have been doing the back stitching as I go. I have frequently been guilty of leaving it ALL to the end, but not this time!

Today I should get back to my Mystic Stitch piece, Magpie, by Monet. 7 pages complete, 8 to go, but 4 of those 8 are smaller than usual.

This is Dear Jane. Fran and I are doing it as a stitch along. In this case, I have completed 2 motifs and only have about a million to go.
