Veronica's Neighborhood RR is ready to go to Holland now!

Tonight I was able to finish up Veronica's Neighborhood RR - ahead of the September 15th posting date. I really enjoyed working on her block. For those who do not know, Veronica is not online. She enclosed a note in her project and mentioned that she and her husband often take walks in the countryside. And, sometimes they stop at a tea room. So, I stitched her a tea room :-) I added an extra park bench and more flower pots. The walkway was a request from Veronica - each of us is asked to add a walkway to our house. That part stymied me, but I got it done. Then I added some bunnies from LHN's Morning Berries, but stitched them over one as they would have been monstrously huge in relation to the park benches. I am not overjoyed with how they ended up sitting on the fabric - I probably should have stitched them a little higher up and maybe a little closer together. You cannot see their little cottontails in the scan, but they are there. I hope Veronica likes it. Mike will post this off via GPM to Annemarie tomorrow. She should receive it in 3-4 days.
And here is the best shot I could get of how Veronica's entire RR looks now - Veronica did two blocks, Su did one, and of course, mine... I think it is a pretty neighborhood - very delicate.

**************************************************

I looked at the rotation today that I wrote up last night, and I thought - "yeah, right!!" - I don't see how I can stick to a rotation while in a Chatelaine online group... so ditch that, and the rotation will be solid again next year! I'm sad, but I'll live - I don't regret the Chatelaine class, I just want to "do it all!"

The daylily gallery continues - I spent a good hour earlier this evening labeling as many as I could of the hundreds of digital photos Mike took of the garden this year - I figured out about 20-30 of them - I have forgotten so many of the cultivars' names - today's floral offering to my pals: Cimmaron Knight

Von, I haven't forgotten your irises. The weather appears to be cooling down enough now to go out and dig some for you - next week, if I am lucky :-)

Carol, Veronica's RR is looking great. I love your contribution. The Teahouse, path and bunnies are all wonderful. Thanks for the whole shot. The blocks all look so pretty. Mystery IX is looking sensational as well.

Von said...

Carol, you are an amazing woman! What a beautiful addition to Veronica's neighborhood you've created!! She's going to be sooo pleased with her entire piece, it's enchanting.

And, dear friend, to remember the irises you'd promised months ago. How did I know you'd make good on it? Because you are you. :) It's been so warm here still that I've held off even planning to get out for those autumn gardening chores. It should start to cool down to some 80s this week. I'm really looking foward to some reasonable weather. :)

Goodness Carol, I haven't visited in some time. You are the stitcher with the MOST accomplished. Veronica's RR is delightful. What a beautiful block you added!

Your mystery sampler is awesome & Emblem of Love is quite attractive as well.

Awww, such a pretty kitty. My household is in quite an uproar with Mrs. Cat feeling much improved since her surgery.
