Jetsetter? I Wish!

A couple of weekends ago, I finished the June Square of my Bent Creek Snappers. This square seemed to take me a while to do and was tedious. I think it's because the stitching area is more dense. I do get a kick out of the stamps on the suitcase. They are all for places I've never been too but are on my destination list. New York, London and Rome...here I come...one day!! Here is a close up on the square.
And here is a snap of how the project looks so far. I am half way done! Seems weird to be stuck on July though since we're already in November but I didn't start this project until mid-July so not bad. I think the Snappers will have to be put away in the drawer for the time being. I have too many other stitchy obligations right now and I don't think *July Sings* will be debuted until January.
In other stitchy news, stitching has been slow. I am working on the ornament for the HoE Christmas exchange and after that, I have a couple of gifts lined up. If only I could clone myself. I'd stay home and stitch all day and the clone could go to work! Haha...wouldn't that be wonderful?!

Bent Creek Snappers is looking great! And if you make it to London - you had better give me a call!

Great idea to send the clone to work - just make sure that she doesn't send you and she gets to stay home stitching!
