Ready to go...

Hello Neighbor Round Robin, Group One

The Stitching House

The Goode Huswife

Silkweaver 40 ct Sandcastle linen

Weeks Dye Works and DMC floss


I finished up my square for the Hello Neighbor RR (Group One) tonight. The green in this one really makes all the difference. This is one of my favorite house designs, and I am so happy I got to use it for this RR. I had it aside for a while for the other Neighborhood RR I have been in for the past year and a half, but this design was too small to use for that one. So, now I am just waiting for Nicole's new address (she is moving to NH this weekend), and I will post it off to her quite soon.

It was 95F here today, so Mike and I decided to go for a ride to the beach... this included a trip to Yankee Cross Stitch for me :-) I didn't take a photo of what I bought as one item is a gift and the majority of the rest is items for upcoming exchanges and birthdays...

And.......... congratulations to the surging Ryan Newman! Ryan won the pole position today for Sunday night's race at Lowe's Motor Speedway!! Yay! Things have been looking up a little for him lately... Good Luck Ryan!!!

Oh... and my exchange package for the "A Trip Around the World" exchange on the SBEBB officially was posted off today - I hope my exchange partner enjoys her package!

Stitched on today: Started Garden Theme Exchange, and finished my block for the Hello Neighbor Round Robin (Group One)

Oh, I didn't notice you were part of the Trip Around the World exchange, too! It was fun, wasn't it? I can't wait to see what you stitched.

Your NRR house is adorable. I just love how TGH does houses.

Hey, did you notice your fob on my brand-new smalls display? Hooray!!

That's a lovely house, Carol! Enjoy your weekend.

Little Grey Cat said...

Aww lovely how. I still wish I'd had enough stitching time to be able to join one of the neighborhood round robins. They've looked like so much fun. I really like the pattern in the grass at the bottom.

That's a wonderful house, Carol. I want to live there, but I may have told you that before :o)
