Houses Update

This is my Monday update of HOHRH. I didn't really get all that much done. A quick glance at the calendar this morning revealed that I needed to get a little giddy-up in my step and start another gift that needs to get posted off within the next couple of days. I had great success with that and need only do some finishing work tomorrow... HOHRH had to take a little bit of a back seat tonight, but at least I did get to it! I feel like I have been working on this house block forever (all of the blocks feel that way).

Thank you for all the nice comments on Rachael's RR - I was especially happy that Rachael commented that she likes it already - there will be another update tomorrow, as Jo and I won't be doing the Paradigm Lost SAL this week. She is travelling in the southwest for business right now and we decided to let the SAL go for the week. That will give me a chance to work on the RR tomorrow instead.

Some good news - Mike finally sold the Chrysler 300 SRT8! Good bye huge car payment! The buyer is, of all things, in Iceland! Wow, the logistics now to get the car picked up, driven to NYC and put on a plane - glad that is the buyer's issue and not ours!

Blech! It is going to be a cold week around here. The chipmunks are already awake and running all over the place. I think they might be happier if they go back underground until Saturday!

Stitched on today: The Mermaid and the Sea, started a gift, and Houses of Hawk Run Hollow

**********I am searching for an older Prairie Schooler freebie of a porcupine, and beneath him it says "stick it here" - does anyone have this? I would love to negotiate with you! Thanks!!

HOHRH os looking fantastic! Congrats on selling the car. I thought it was complicated enough shipping Pete's kit car from Adelaide to Sydney! ;-)

I have that PS chart, Carol, and will send it today. :) No negotiations needed. LOL!

So glad Mike sold his car. I remember when I first came to Europe about 100 years ago, US cars were truly the rage and people would pay outrageous amounts of money for the status symbol.

HOHRH looks great. Can't wait to see the surprises you've also been working on.

Congrats on the car! I remember what a PITA you felt that car was.
I'm glad Barbara can help you about the chart. It rings a bell, but I couldn't for life of me remember where online I saw it.

HOHRH is looking good Carol. It really sounds like you'll be glad when you've put in the very last stitch.

I have to give you credit-stitching almost every day! How do you do it?

HOHRH looks great! I love seeing the updates on it.

I know that some friends of ours who lived in Boston shipped their cars from New York to Stockholm on ships out of New York harbour. Getting them out of the US did go pretty smooth. Congrats on selling the car!

HOHRH looks great. Congrats on selling the car...what a crazy thing - going all the way to Iceland. Wow! What a small world we live in today, huh?

Dear Carol,
lovely progress, as always.
Don't worry, I'm working on Dawn every Thursday but I don't usually post a progress every week. I imagine that this week will be the right week to see something!
