Finished Part 2

I finished Part 2 of Bordeaux Sampler this afternoon :-) Now I am really enjoying this one too! Anne has already finished Part 3, so I really have some catching up to do, don't I? Good thing Part 3 looks quicker. I hope to start that this weekend.

I spent the evening working on Dianne's Neighborhood Round Robin - I stayed up really late doing that, in fact. The house is totally done and I have been a landscaper most of the night. I am pleased now with how it is progressing and should easily be finished tomorrow! I will make the posting date - although the post office is closed Monday and snow/ice are heading in... so the RR will get posted to Annemarie sometime this coming week. I know she is not in a rush to get it. Tomorrow I will post the little postage stamp size area of my part (Dianne says a small picture like that is OK).

I watched Snakes on a Plane tonight... someone said it had a shocker ending, so I hung in for that... but there didn't seem to be one. Disappointing.

Happy Birthday to my sister Kathryn (Katie) today - I think she is 42 now, wow!

Woohoo, way to go with Bordeaux ... knowing you and your speedy needles, you'll be catching me up and overtaking soon ;) It really is lovely, isn't it? :D

Lovely work Carol.

Sorry you were disappointed with Snakes On A Plane. Bren loves it. He loves "creature" films. I don't know what they meant by a shocker at the end though. Bren liked the scene with the guy in the toilet.LOL

Good grief! You did that fast. You must stitch with a needle in both hands!!!

Happy birthday to Katie too

Lovely progress, Carol. I would sure love to see a good-sized picture of your RR square - if you have the time and inclination, would you mind emailing it to me? What a curious girl I am, see! But I know what a great job you've been doing with that Neighbourhood RR, so I'm really eager to see that one :)

Your Bordeaux Sampler is looking beautiful! I watched "Snakes on a Plane" the other night and thought it was OK, nothing special though...

Congrats on finishing part 2. It is funny that the three of us seem to move down the sampler in a pack, one behind the other! I am hoping to get a ton done on monday.

The sampler looks great! Every time I see the picture of it I ponder the grape worshiping bears in the top row. (I know that's not what they really are!)

Your Bordeaux Sampler is looking great, Carol :) I bet Dianne's RR is beautiful! :)
hugs :)

Dianne said...

Thanks so much for putting so much time into my NRR. The stitching you and the other ladies are doing for me is really appreciated. I can't wait to see it in about 9 months. It will be like having a baby. ; p

Snakes on a plane...........hmmmm, maybe not, lol.

Lovely update on the Bordeux though :) I haven't seen that one before but it's looking fab!

Annemarie said...

Great work on the Bordeaux sampler. And no hurry with Dianne's RR. Please...

Susan said...

Absolutely gorgeous!

Bordeaux is looking lovely, I really like the grapes around the edges.

I haven't seen Snakes, I don't really like snakes, and I hate planes as don't like the feeling of being closed in and can't get out, so don't think that would be a good movie for me at all. For a creature movie, give me a good Vampire/Werewolf/Creature from the Black Lagoon movie anytime. :)
Sorry you were disappointed with the ending, hope you enjoy the next movie you see more.

Lovely! Bordeaux Sampler looks great.

The boys in our household watched the snake movie ... I didn't : )

Enjoy your week-end. We didn't get the ice/sleet stuff yesterday .. . not sure if we are going to get 'white stuff' on Sunday into Monday. We prepare for it anyhow.
