Carol's Neighborhood RR
From Prairie Schooler's Rain, Rain, Go Away
DMC on 36ct Summer Khaki Edinburgh Linen
As you can see I worked all weekend on finishing my block for Carol's Neighborhood RR. I just got so behind with starting school and everything. I hated to be late mailing this out, but I wanted it to be perfect and didn't want to cut any corners. I filled in the door, rather than have the lady standing in it, because Carol didn't want any people in her RR. Also, this is stitched with one thread over two, as it is 36ct.
I love the way Carol's RR is coming along. I think my house is a good compliment to the other red house, and also is a good balance to the one in the right hand corner with the tree. Carol, I hope you like it!
It is on its way to Judith's as soon as I get over to the post office. I have one other errand to run this morning, and then post office it is! And speaking of the mail, I had an unexpected surprise in mine last week.
Lauren sent back my RR. I can hardly believe it, but she finally sent it back. There was no note or anything in the package, but she did send back my RR, as well as the thread and charts I'd included. I am so glad to have it back, but now I don't know what to do with it. Since I've already started another RR, and it is making its way around, after all of us having to do some shuffling, I have no idea what to do with this one. As you can see Toni did finish her block, which I'd never seen a photo of, and it appears Lauren stitched a block too. I'm not sure why she bothered, but maybe she stitched it back before she decided to hold on to it? Who knows. I am contemplating picking out the stitching and reusing the fabric for something else, but I'm not sure yet...so I'll just leave it as is for now. I am so glad to have it back, regardless of what went on.
School/training is going well. I've taken two tests and did well (I missed 1/2 a question on my second test). I am spending the majority of my days there though, so it leaves little time for anything else. On the job front, things are looking really really good - but I'll keep you posted!
No Just Nan again this weekend, which I am disappointed about, especially since I was making such good progress on it. I may try to pick it up during the week, if I have any stitching time. Hope you all have a fabulous week! Keep stitching!!
I am grateful for those little sideways birds - they make me smile!
