Gardener's Cottage Progress

With the March 15th mailing date approaching, I took today and will take tomorrow night to work on my square for the Neighborhood RR. I think I made quite a bit of progress, but not as much as I had hoped I would... considering I stitched this for a very, very long time today... sigh.... Oh well, I still feel as if I am on track and will make the mailing deadline. I figure I am about half done now.

There were a few comments left yesterday expressing an interest in learning more about the new Blackbird Designs charts that I have been raving about... OK, here is "My Missouri Home," the one I bought yesterday... nice, isn't it??!! Of course, mine will read "My Auburn Home." Even if I stitched the lettering over one, "My New Hampshire Home" would look a bit too... long... You can see all of the new Blackbird Designs here.

I see my kitties have been tagged by Tess (owner of RosieKiwi) to do a meme.... well, I will ask them tomorrow who would like to volunteer (I am owned by six cats!!), and will have one of them do the meme as soon as possible :-)

Only fifteen days until spring....

Stitched on today: Gardener's Cottage

I love your house Carol! It's taking shape nicely. I am getting excited to receive the next one. I was so tired of mine as it was a bit bigger than I thought.

Gardener's Cottage is looking wonderful Carol! And Maisie would love to hear what one of your beautiful kitties likes to do ;)

Your house is coming along nicely Carol.
I had to go and look at the designs you were talking about and I really like the bird 1, 2 is ok but I prefer the first. I'm going to resist temptation though, I've just ordered my silks from VC for the Papillon Mystery - all your fault, I totally blame you ;)

Awk...Slight insecurity attack on my end. This is such a beautiful house, Carol, how will I ever be able to come up with something as nice? And you're going to send it on to me, too! Remember though, it's okay if you run a few days late!

Your house is very pretty.

And Mystery IX is outstanding! I can't wait to see more.

Your Mystery IX is looking great as well.

I answered your e-mail...sorry, I was so swamped with e-mail and just didn't get to them over the weekend :)

hugs to you!
