My Stitching Prodigies

Hello from the other side of a move. 

Well, sort of.  We're in temporary digs while we look for something more permanent.  Which means most of my stuff is staying packed for now.  Including most of my stitchy stuff.  It's a bit of a Catch 22, because having to repack everything when it comes time to move again would be really stressful, but without my stitchy stuff I'm having trouble finding a stress-releasing activity...


My brother and sister-in-law stopped through town to help us move for a few weeks and once we had a bit of free time he was able to update me on his stitching progress:

I just love my little stitching prodigies.  :)
