A few stitches

I finished stitching Tanya's Irish pinkeep last night. I want to finish it as a pillow so I added a dividing band down the center. I used DMC with one color change: 407/3373. I made a little more progress on 'Scottish Alexandria." I love those letters!
The girls made a little craft which they insisted be displayed on the mantel! It is a "pop-up" of a medieval kitchen - fun!

Today is our 'long' day: lots of driving, finding ballet tights and piano books, eating healthy, sustaining snacks. I hope to sneak in a few more stitches - I hope you are able to as well!
