Page 1 Sort of Done

For all intents and purposes, page 1(actually #4) of my Large Cross-stitch #1 is complete. This is how it looked last week.
 This is what it looks like this morning.
 
Yes, I know, that the lower right corner has some open stitches.
Those stitches are one or two of each color and those colors continue into the page below which I am going to work on next. I couldn't see the sense in just stitching one stitch when I could continue into the next page quite easily. So I am declaring the first page complete. Moving on to the second page (actually #9).

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I don't expect to get much more stitching done today. I want to empty some of my potted plants that are well past their prime.
 Hubby and I are also going to go to the Italian Street Festival that is held in our town every year. The main thoroughfare is closed, the local stores are open and also have tents on the street. There is food, food and more food as well as craft tables and other vendors. There are rides and a petting zoo for the kiddies and entertainment for everyone.

Thanks for stopping by!

You have my mouth watering just thinking about the food there :)

Beautiful progress! Keep it up. Don't blame you for declaring it a finished page. I look forward to watching the next page grow too.

Thank you.

Unfortunately, Hubby and I are trying to lose weight so we avoided most of the goodies. I really wish we had gotten some zeppoles. I really love those, but fried dough needs to be avoided.

Thank you.

Sounds like a lovely time! I can't believe how quickly you got that done. Looking good and can't wait to see the next page next week.

Sounds like a smart plan to call this page done! I hope you enjoyed a lovely day/afternoon! :)

What pretty cross stitch. I love the graduated colors of the sky.
