Frances Pool Update July 4, 2018

I am almost done with Frances! We had a short vacation for Independence Day, and I had a lot of stitching time.  Our cabin does not have internet access, so very little distractions. Plus Hubby took youngest DD on an overnight camping trip, so I was able to stitch for hours.

I need one more skein of WDW Red Rocks to finish the flowers and then it is finished!
