Hit the ground running...
As I was starting to get concerned about getting started on the next Neighborhood Round Robin (Group 3), and having it finished in time for the first mailing on July 15, I decided to get started tonight. I was able to grid my fabric and stitch quite a lot of my design. After getting this much done tonight, I am no longer worried about meeting the deadline. And, I hope that when stitchers receive my RR, they may feel a sense of relief, as I chose to make my blocks only 60 x 60 stitches. I am using 36 ct Summer Khaki Edinburgh linen, and am stitching part of Geranium House by Country Cottage Needleworks to start it off. I am asking each stitcher to stitch a house of any style they choose, as long as it is the house she would like to live in in my neighborhood :-)
It is also Christmas Ornament SAL weekend, and I stitched this one up today. It is Merry Christmastide by Shepherd's Bush. I plan to finish this off into a small needleroll with a little ribbon on the top to hang on the tree. I will do that as soon as I can find the time.
For those who asked, Mike loves his new iPhone. He found it does have a couple of glitches (all related to photos and transferring them, or some such thing), but apparently nothing major. He has it with him all the time, that is for sure - LOL
I am not sure how I got all of this done today. I did a lot of other things today, yet also got this stitching done... very strange. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!
