I'm almost packed and ready to go. Work is very hectic while I prepare to be gone for six whole work days. I hate it when I start to pay for a vacation even before I leave! No time for stitching - thank goodness for the train or I would have done nothing over the past couple of days. I'm almost finished with Topiary Ornament IV from Hillside Samplings. I'm working on joining the two sides and I'll be done before I get home from tonight. I have a new camera and so far I'm so happy with it! My stitching pictures are close up and not the least bit fuzzy and the colors are much truer than they were with my last digital camera. I bought a Canon Power Shot SD800 - I had been using a three year old Sony. Such a difference!
