Last Happy Dance in Mississippi

Late last night I put the final stitches in Our Days for my mom. I am pleased with how it turned out. I always get nervous when I have to center words on the fabric because I usually mess up and get it off centered. I only messed up once on the names and date. Luckily, I caught it rather quickly so I didn't have to rip out a bunch of stitches. I am going to go to the post office and get it mailed off today so I don't have to worry about losing it in the move.

If I get a chance to stitch this evening I am going to start Laurie's house RR. It's not due till May 15 but I know she is looking forward to getting it back so I want to get it finished and mailed back to her as soon as I can. I am hoping to also start working on Renee's Birthday exchange this week, too.

I hope you have a safe and uneventful trip to Arkansas.... I have been at a loss for words as to what to even say about all of that chaos... I hope it all works out well for you and your family... looking forward to hearing you are safely there!

This is a lovely piece and I am sure your mom and 'dad' will cherish it.
Good luck with everything. I am also frazzled, but at least I only had to move stuff from one room to the rest of the house. ; )
