My IH35 Stitchtogether WIP

Once a month I make the two-hour drive to Austin, TX for the IH35 Stitchtogether. A group of us meet in the conference room of a public library and spend half the day stitching, eating, trading, eating, enabling, eating, and yakking. It's a fun time with a great group of gals.
Our name comes from Interstate Highway 35 which runs north and south through Austin. Anyone living along IH35 is welcome. Actually, anyone living in Texas is welcome if they want to make the drive!
As I find it hard to listen, stitch, count, and concentrate all at the same time, I usually take a very easy project with me to work on. It has to be something with very little counting or color changes. So I usually take this Quaker Mystery Sampler. I downloaded it off a Belgian website two years ago. It was published in six parts and was meant to be done as a stitchalong. With only one color and with most of the motifs being easy to stitch from visually (instead of counting), it's the perfect project to take with me.
I don't know when I'll get it finished as I only stitch on it once a month!
