Thank You Barbara!!
I got back to work on Karen's Neighborhood Round Robin again tonight. It took much longer than I had expected to fill in the red of the house. Now that that is done, my little ideas are starting to take shape. The photo is a bit overexposed, sorry! You can see I added some birds from And A Forest Grew a couple of nights ago. Now I am using elements from Harvest Blessing by Country Cottage Needleworks...
I received a real treat in the mail today! Thank you so much, Barbara, for the lovely package of birthday gifts!
As you can see, Barbara sent me some gorgeous cuts of 40 ct linen and three skeins of Thread Gatherer Silk 'n Colors! I love it all! These choices are just right for me, and I want to use them all - right now! Thank you, dear friend!!
I also received a couple of packages of stash today - items I ordered for myself for my birthday - I definitely think LHN's Garden Pleasures has to be started soon, perhaps as a new "at work" project!! It has been absolutely forever since I have had new stash, so this is a big treat.
Mike and I are both struggling with a stomach bug right now, though. I have continued to go to work, but am tired. I owe some important email replies, and I will have to make sure to fit time in for those tomorrow - An and Karen, I promise!!
Stitched on today: Needleroll Exchange project, and Karen's Neighborhood Round Robin
