I'm a little late with my TUSAL update. I think the late/post-Olympic WIPocalypse threw me off my schedule a bit (I'm so used to giving more time between the two).
Here I am with my TUSAL!
I also have my new TUSAL bottle ready for cutting. I'm not sure if I'll worry about starting in that one until next year or not. I think it will depend on ES. As it's a kit, I will do my usual "dumping of ALL of the threads from the kit," which might overwhelm my poor wine bottle.
Tired of Egyptian Sampler yet? Well, as it is Wednesday, and I have another update (I really should have gone to bed early last night, but...). I finished all of the regular stitching in the border, and I'm now working on the backstitching. I just have the last color (420) to get in there and backstitch and I'll move onto the lily panel. I probably won't get to it til this weekend, and I'm happy I got as far as I did.
