We are back from vacation, we took a trip to West Virginia and Colorado, and are now back home, talk about cross country :) On our trip I finished Blackbird Design: Sunflower House. I love it!!
and a close up...
I changed out several colors to use what I had in my stash... I didn't realize I had so much threads LOL! So I had to use them up. The yellow of the house was threads that Leena sent me from a birthday exchange last year, it looked so pretty :) Thanks Leena!
Also, I finished Cindy's NRR before I left, just didn't get photos of it up, so here it is. It's a freebie chart by Barbara Ana. It turned out nice and I think matches well with her neighborhood. Only one house left! I'll be mailing this to Von in a few weeks.
And I have a progress picture of Old McMary's. I haven't put up a picture since the end of April. I finally got that big barn and roof all filled in, it is huge I tell you. I am glad that part is done, the rest should go fairly quickly, if I can find the time to work on it :D
I have started a Christmas gift for my sister, and will have to start the SBEBB Fall House Exchange too, I can't wait to get that one started. While I was in Colorado, I was lucky to be able to meet up with Katrina, who is absolutely AWESOME. She picked me up and we drove to FanciMats in Littleton, CO, and then went to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory, and then to a quilt shop in Colorado Springs. We had a great time together! Thanks again for everything Katrina. She was so sweet and made me this beautiful fob, complete with matching scissors. What more could a girl want??
I am glad to be home after 12 days away, that was sure a long trip. Now I have to get my act together and start getting school supplies and whatnot. It just never ends *sigh*
