Annemarie totally made my day! My week! My month! Thank you so much, my friend!

Here is why Annemarie has me filled with glee today! I got to see a picture of how my Neighborhood RR looked when it arrived at Barb's house yesterday! (Thank you Barb, for the great photo!). I love, love, love everything Annemarie put in her block! She did an amazing job - and can you believe, she was stressed out and worrying the whole time? Nobody is going to believe Annemarie anymore when she says she is worried about these RR blocks - LOL! And, I am sure you have noticed that she added a little black bear - I am sure that is in honour of the backyard guest we had here on Friday afternoon! I love how the cat sits atop the roof of the house, well out of harm's way - she stitched me a smart kitty! Annemarie, you are THE BEST! Thank you so much!
Tonight was Kingdom Sampler SAL night with Nikki, and once again this one was fun to stitch. It is giving me a nice distraction from MTM, that's for sure! I love how quickly this one is moving along.

I decided to treat myself to a little early birthday present today - before these got sold out. I ordered the Just Nan Exclusive, Noah's Sampler Reborn, from The Silver Needle today. I just couldn't resist this one! I generally cannot resist much that has the Noah's Ark theme, so you can see how this just had to end up here in my hands.... LOL

Stitched on today: Papillon Creations Mystery Sampler and Kingdom Sampler

Carol, your RR is looking great! Beautiful stitching both blocks.

Nicki said...

I saw it on Barbara's blog and I have to say it's one of the best house and garden RRs I've seen. It's looking so good so far. Love that bear too!

Joy said...

The kingdom sampler is gorgeous!!! Thank you for sharing such beautiful pictures everyday! :)

Annemarie said...

Hee hee, thanks Carol, it was my pleasure stitching this house (and the critters surrounding it) for you! Yes, your visitor was quite an inspiration!
Your Dragon Dreams sampler is coming along very nicely. I love the colours.
I love everything Ark-related too. And I've also got a thing for elephants in cross stitch, so I'm afraid this sampler is going to be a must-have for me as well...

You are one very lucky lady to be on the receiving end of so much creativity and beauty!!

I stitched a couple of small ark samplers when my twins were babies. Thought the Noah theme was appropriate for the twins' nursery. :D

Your RR piece looks amazing Carol, Annemarie you did a fantastic job.

Your dragon looks great too and why not treat yourself for your Birthday :)

I've been admiring your RR on Barbara's blog and the RR blog - I love what Annemarie did with her block, especially the bear!

Nice progress on Kingdom Sampler too!

Great work on the Kingdom Sampler! It seems to be working up quite quickly.
