Progress after one Week

It's a little wrinkled (UNDERSTATEMENT!!!) but here is my progress after the first week of stitching on this kit.


I'm very excited at how quickly it is coming together, especially seeing as it has been a VERY hectic week around here.

I got some good stitching time in last Thursday and after that we've been very busy working to get a referendum passed here in our town to renovate our local high school. The vote was on Tuesday (I did absolutely ZERO stitching on the vote day!!) and we were lucky after doing so much hard work that the referendum passed.

There was a group of moms that "camped" at the end our the highway entrance ramp down the street from my house this morning waving signs thanking the voters for supporting the kids. Here is a picture of them...


My daughter is the one on the far left in the red and black jacket with the "THANK YOU" sign...

You've made great progress, despite everything. The result of the referendum must be a great relief.

Despite your busy week, you've gotten quite a bit done on your Footprints, and it is already looking lovely!

And congrats on your referendum success!! What I really like to see is how the kids have gotten involved too, through their parents. They are learning by good example! Congratulations on that too!!
