Sorry to report that there has only been minimal progress on Petunia and her surroundings. I had hoped to be able to report more, but alas that is not to be. Fletch (DH) and I took off for several days of camping/boating/hiking. What an amusing time (luckily we found it funny). Making a long story short: day 1 we almost tipped the camper over; day 2 I ended up sitting in the river when I attempted to get out of our boat (water temp was about 53 -- not fun); day 3 rain, rain, rain...a leak in the camper over where I sleep (of course)...made it home fine (long trip due to heavy traffic and accidents, but we were safe)...day after we are home I am doing laundry and go down to the basement to take a load out of the washer and there is a SNAKE in the basement. Need I say that I am in love with A&E samplers but am terrified of snakes?
So enough of that nonsense. Here is a snap of where things stand tonight. I have not put a single stitch in this piece in over a week. I am missing it, but hope to do a bit tonight and tomorrow before I have to head back to work on Monday (boo-hoo).
