John Foster 1885 progress

I thought I would post a progress picture of John Foster, my current love. I've stitched just about as much as I had finished before we had our lover's quarrel a few months ago. I love this sampler and I find him very relaxing to stitch. The little motifs are just a treat to stitch. So, what do you think?



On another note, my son is spending a month with the AirForce ROTC shadowing commissioned officers. He's at Fairchild AFB in Spokane Washington. However, this week, they few to Houston to fly the trainer jets. He left this morning and will be there until Friday. To say he's pumped is an understatement. I am dying to hear how he fared during his time in the plane. As he said, GO JETS!!!

Joanie, you're doing so well on JF. It as such wonderful colors!

I live just a couple of hours' drive away from Fairchild! Do share with us his story about flying trainer jets. I have a friend here whose son flies for the Air Force and well remember his total rapture in those things. These days he's flying meeker planes hauling equipment around, but he still loves flying. :D
