I'll post more about the other branch in a bit!
Meanwhile, I'm hurrying along with another design that I am trying to finish as fast as I can. It turned out to be a much bigger (time-consuming) project that I anticipated, as usual. I am very, very pleased with how it is coming along though. I will post a photo when I am done.
My dear husband and I are off tomorrow morning early for an overnight in Edinburgh. I might not have any stitching time for two days. But, I am taking it along, just in case. If I don't, the compensation is: a visit to at least one, maybe two castles! I'm not complaining!
