Fabulous Feather: From UFO to WIP

It's been a whirlwind since I came back from camp. I had a bit of time at home - primarily spent unpacking from a summer at camp and packing for a semester of college. Then we drove up to New York to move my brother into college - he's a freshman this year! It took two days to drive each way, so it was a bit of a tiring trip. Then I moved into school, and I've finished my first week of classes! I've had some time to stitch, since I can listen to some of my school books as audiobooks while I stitch.

Here's the progress I've made since coming back from camp. I'm not sure why I was so drawn to work on this piece, which had been almost untouched since I started it as part of the Crazy January Challenge in 2013. I suspect it's because my grandmother, who is the intended recipient of this piece, has been sick lately, and she's been on my mind. Hopefully I can finish this piece up as a gift for her without many more years of delay!

It's called "Fabulous Feather," and it appeared in the January 2013 issue of the Cross-Stitch and Needlework Magazine.



Happy stitching!
