SAL day

It's SAL day and of course the power went out earlier today.  The temps are starting to drop but no snow or rain (for now).  We still are having gusts to 50 mph or more. Part of our neighbor's fence went down, we have lots of limbs down and one neighbor's basketball hoop went down on his car.  I'm happy we got back from vacation before the wind started then again I could have used another day or two of vacation where it's warmer.

I only took two small projects on vacation therefore a small SAL.

This is the nearest SAL (datewise)  to the end of February

In case I haven't shown the front cover
a new start
a gift for a friend

Progress as of this morning

another new start

Progress as of yesterday
Note that all the red isn't filled in
I did outside edges of the blues and reds
so I wouldn't need to look at the chart
if I stitched at the airport or airplane
did neither - read instead.

Don't forget to look at the other members' great works.
Welcome to the new members within the last few weeks.
