And let me be the first to say, when traveling with a toddler (or really ANY child, I can only assume!) there is no such thing as a "vacation." LOL
We were in Iowa over the weekend for my sister-in-law's wedding. After one delayed flight, a race through the Detroit airport while wearing an almost-30 lb. toddler, making the connecting flight only to realize said toddler had not had a diaper change or lunch (and yes, we did have food for her, but somehow I don't think nilla wafers and a juice box are a good substitute for lunch!), and a myriad of other problems-that-would-not-have-seemed-like-problems-had-we-not-been-parents, it was with a great (albeit somewhat guilty) sigh of relief that I took her to daycare this morning and went home to do all the laundry, watch a movie with DH and take a looooooooooong nap.
While I didn't stitch while we were traveling, I did make some progress on "Count Your Blessings" today between loads of laundry and naps. I'll share later!
I also made a somewhat depressing discovery. When I lived in Erie, I had a LNS (Stitchin' Stuff, for those who've been to the area) that did what I thought was wonderful framing. Her eye for color was very much like my own, and I was always happy with the work she did for me - you can see some of it on the "Framed Finishes" page here. But I was looking closely at some of the pieces on my wall today, and I noticed that the cut edges of the mats are starting to yellow. Every single one. And none of them are older than about 5 years. Ugh. I can't afford to have them all taken apart and re-framed, so for now they'll just have to stay as they are...
