Although I took the spider bag along, Mexico was not conducive to stitching. If I had the time there was inadequate light. But I did make some progress with ribbon leaves. After all the leaves are finished I plan to go over them in spots with alcohol ink to add more definition.
When I was doing a lot of round robins I always made extra blocks so I would have one available if I decided to join at the last minute. I found a black one that will be perfect for the pocket on the back of the spider bag.
For the last five years we have gone to Seaside Oregon in October with some friends and stayed right on the beach...no dogs allowed in our condo.... and every year we abandoned Morris with a sitter. We would watch all the dogs cavorting on the beach and many times each day we would say "Oh Morris would just love this."
So next week Morris gets his own vacation on the beach with our full undivided attention.. Lots of walks, belly rubs, cuddling, meals on time and treats galore.
We are going to Westport, WA for 5 days while the cheap winter rates are still on. I plan on doing no cooking, lots of stitching on the bag and watch the waves roll in and out from dawn to dusk.
I'm also leaving the laptop at home so don't expect any posts for awhile.
