Page 3 Done

I finished page 3 of the Astronomer today. This is going much faster than usual. It took two weeks to finish this page. In the past it has taken a month to finish a page, so I feel pretty good about getting it done so speedy.

Yesterday was our monthly Stitch 'n Bitch at March's. I worked on my Seasonal Exchange, so know piccies of that right now. We had a good time as usual and after lunch we went shopping at In Stitches. My sister had given me a $25 gift certificate. I purchased the fabric to do Carriage House Alphabet Sampler. I got a neutral 25 count lugana. I am going to do it over 1. So I'll have to start gathering the fibers I want to use. I think I'll mainly use DMC, but I might have a few other types thrown in. I also purchased CH's Tavern Signs. This is going to be the piece March and I will do as our mini-SAL. I have until next month to get everything together for it.
Well, I have to go do a few chores and then, back to stitching!
