More time on Noah's Ark stitchery...

I have broken the back of Noah's Ark roof this weekend. Only a few little x's and back stitch left. The back stitching highlights the attic rooms (if that's what they are called on arks- any ark experts out there?)

I have been stitching on it this last weekend while visiting hubby with the children. Hubby is living and working four hours away this year as a career move. He will be back with us in 2014. He tries to get home on weekends but he was working this past one, so we went to him. The children adore seeing him especially our three year old, Tom who doesn't quite get where Daddy is during the week. Tom fell asleep on Daddy last night so there has been some missing going on.

This post is shared on the blog Handmade Harbour:Handmade Monday where all sorts of craftiness is shared.  Check it out.

Thanks for walking in my garden...
