Lizzie Kate "Summer Alphabet"

I picked this pattern up at a shop in Florida. I thought it was so cute and a change from the repros I've been stitching. I'm getting sooo close to being finished with Sarah. I hope to finish her sometime this week!!

More Sarah

I'm still working on Sarah Woodham. It didn't seem like I had gotten anything done until I looked at my before picture.

I worked on this corner a little bit to take a break from the over one words.

Top right corner

I'm excited that I don't have too much more to go!! Maybe it will only take a few more weeks if I can find some stitching time while in Florida! :)

Sarah Again

I have been slowly stitching the over one words in the middle...

Over one section

I'm hoping to get it finished within the next couple of months. I would say month, but I don't see it happening because spring break is coming up and we'll be headed down to Florida with the kids.
