Prepping for another Stitchin' In weekend.

I have been joining facebook groups like mad, and spending more than my fair share of hours looking at other work. This week in particular, I have been broadening my Canadian work base. I have been checking out http://mysweetprairie.blogspot.ca/ and enjoying her thread paintings. 

There is a double barrel reason to stitch in this weekend:

1) June SAL on this facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/events/160873054094396/161495007365534/?notif_t=plan_mall_activity

2) International Hermit Stitch Weekend is this weekend (http://joysze.blogspot.ca/p/international-hermit-and-stitch-weekend.html

The three I am going to focus on are from my Turtle Trot Page: Paris Market, Flower Pot & Panda Pals. The most recent updated photos are on that page and I am hoping to show some decent progress. This weekend I will be partaking in a 2-2-2-2-2 weekend. Small 2 hour father's day celebration, 2 hours of roller (skating) derby training, 2 hours at my mother's, 2 hours of solitary cooking on Sunday night for my Ladies Dinner Club and parenting my almost 2 year old. Every other waking availability will be spent on stitching. I just will it to be. How else am I going to get some down time? By my calculations, I think I can get 4 hours on Friday, 4-6 on Saturday and another 4 hours on Sunday so I am EXCITED!!!
