Monopoly and more.......

Not much to report on the crafty side of things, even though I am not working I have been busy every day this week. I am now a member of 13 Yahoo groups and working on several swaps. My next project is a dragonfly handmade book for a new friend (via email) in Maine. Hi, Pam!!!


Several years (like maybe 15) ago while working at a fabric store I purchased the supplies for a counted cross stitch Monopoly game. It got frustrating at the time so I packed it away. My friend Daphne inspired me to get it back out and give it another go, so I have been stitching diligently on the darned thing since school let out. Wow! When I pulled it out to re-start I only had 4 squares done, now I am halfway around the board.... here is a pic of my progress:

Great start! That's a lot of work. I haven't cross stitched in years but used to find it relaxing. Hope you enjoy it. Looks great.
