I did not get around to posting last week but I was busy making progress on Mayan Lighting. It is amazing what you can get done when you have the house to yourself. I have chosen not to compensate at the ends and stitch outside the lines. I figured it is going to be covered in matting or put into something so going outside the lines was easier than diagonal compensation. The dashed line was the original line Diane put on the canvas. It is not the right size so I am ignoring that line but I left it so I could show her since this is a pilot class. The colors in this piece are so bright and pretty!!

It may be a week or so before I post again and I may not have much to show. We leave for Brazil tomorrow afternoon. For this trip, you travel overnight and hopefully sleep most of the way. Going down will be fine since we are in business class with lay flat chairs. The flight back is full so we are stuck in coach. I have not really started packing or getting ready to go. I have tonight and tomorrow morning which is plenty of time. We figured the weather will be like southern Florida so when we get home we will wash clothes and pack them back for our trip to Florida for Thanksgiving. Our poor cat will miss us but he has a sitter that will spend some nights with him and our neighbors are going to come over to play.

DH has a second job interview today. Maybe he will get a full time job instead of consulting. A full time job will cramp his travel schedule but he can suck it up like the rest of us. My job has a very generous PTO and holiday benefit so I get off close to two months a year so I know I am very lucky to be able to travel often. No kids in my life so that also helps...

Until next time. Happy stitching.
