Progressing on Gathering Honey

Finally, a progress pic of Gathering Honey! I've stitched the bottom inside portion of the "frame", the bottom portion of the verse, 1 bee, and the start of the leaves and strawberries. I've only backstitched the bee and the center section of the "frame". I know several of you are stitching this pattern, also, but you won't be able to get an accurate feel for the time it takes to actually stitch this by my progress. I have put it down several times, and not stitched at all for weeks. I have really enjoyed stitching it so far.

Some of the reasons my blogging and stitching has been sporadic of late....

We are having a lot of life changes in my family at the moment.
I've been visiting a loved one in the hospital regularly.
I'm looking for a job, (one with an actual paycheck)
I'm trying to find a place for my mom to live
We need to complete a few large projects around the house
Still de-cluttering and simplifying

...to name a few.

DH is on the road again with the band. He'll post some pics probably by tomorrow. Check it out.

Honey is really coming along! I'm going to have to go listen to this band of your DH. Keep us posted on his next Memphis gig!

It's looking good! You have really inspired me. I've ordered my fabric and am waiting for it to arrive so that I can start.

It's looking great! I know how you feel - I haven't stitched on the Rose Garden for nearly two weeks now.

I also know how you feel about your son joining the Army. My twins joined the Marines out of the blue three years ago.
