I wasn't planning on a new start, but...

This weekend we had a long road trip out to the Badon Hill event in Somerset, PA. We took off Thursday at about lunchtime, got about an hour down the road, and discovered that I had left a page of my pattern for my Fall Fairy cross stitch project behind.

Now I'm looking at a six hour car drive with nothing to do. And six hours on Sunday. And all day at the campground Friday and Saturday. ARGH NO PLEASEEEEE SOMEBODY SAVE ME!

Jack came to my rescue with an emergency stop at the Toledo JoAnn Fabrics, where I picked up the Butterfly Profusion kit by Dimensions. (And then a stop at the Hobby Lobby down the street to get a Q-snap frame - isn't he the nicest bestest hubby ever?)

I tirelessly worked on it all weekend when I wasn't shooting the minions of evil with arrows, eating funnel cake, or catching up on sleep.

We had a great time at the event. The nearest town was only 15 minutes away and there was a food vendor on site, so we didn't even bother cooking for ourselves all weekend. They held skirmish battles on Friday and main battles on Saturday. I really wish I had thought to keep my camera on me, but I left it in the tent on the way to the main battle, which takes place at the top of a very steep hill. By the time I realized my camera wasn't with me, I had already climbed the hill twice and was completely unwilling to do so again. Hopefully I can borrow some photos from Facebook to share.

So now it is back to Mundania and work tomorrow. Oh, how boring!

Linking up to Slow Stitching Sunday @ Kathy's Quilts


  1. I am so jealous that you can do handwork in the car! Thank goodness you were able to pick up something on the road fro all that stitching time.

  2. This is going to be beautiful! I think that hubby of yours is a keeper.

  3. What a beautiful new project! You made great progress on it.

  4. That was a perfect excuse to start a new project and it's going to be beautiful.
