Great progres on VoHRH. Looks like you had a wonderful day at the zoo

Annie said...

The stitching looks good. That's a lot of progress.

I love looking through my older books. Always find a treasure or 2 that I forgot about or didn't appreciate earlier.

And Brianna looks adorable.

Deb said...

A big congratulations on finishing Block 1 and moving on to Block #2. This design has such rich colors and you're making great progress!!

The VoHrH piece looks great so far, you're just zipping right through. The school house piece from the book is great too. Brianna looks so amazed by it all. CJ ok;-)

Julie said...

Great selection of books, love the design you found.

Wow, I get behind in my reading and look at all you've gotten done. And They Sinned looks awesome, what a fantastic finish. Your LK Halloween flips are just wonderful too. I just ordered the last three in the series, so while I haven't started it yet, I will have it in my stash. Saw where you pulled House #9 out to work on, that is another great piece, and you've gotten a great start on VoHRH. You had so many lovelies to look at. Love your new SAL BBD Summer House, the colors are so pretty.

Congrats on your new wireless. My DD got wireless for hers and loves it. She travels all over so it made getting email and stuff possible for her again. I'm totally jealous of your ornament preview issue though, I haven't gotten mine yet. :(
Oh well, it will give me something to look forward to in the next week or so. Brianna looked like she quite enjoyed the aquarium, and your cookout looked fun too. Whew, I think that covers most of what I wanted to say, you've certainly been busy. :)

Adorable pic of Brianna!

Look at all those yummy books;)
I have a few of them, but not all.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that pattern you found and are stitching! CUTE!!!
Whenever you're ready to sell, I would love to have 1st dibs:)

VoHRH is gorgeous! Love that fabric you're stitching on!

Brigitte said...

Absolutely great start on Village.
Your cross stitch books must be a real treasure chest. I sometimes spend a whole evening leafing through mine and imagine to stitch this and that and whatever catches my eyes.

Aussie Stitcher said...

You are making wonderful progress on VOHRH. Brianna looks quite taken by the fish tanks, she is gorgeous. Just to let you know that I received Princess Parade on Tuesday, thank you so much for the chart and the surprise piece of fabric. Still having issues with my e-mail, so I thought that leaving a comment here was the best thing to do. Take care my dear friend and thanks again.

LOL! Our seal has been here the last few days :o)

VoHRH is looking beautiful! It looks like a really fun stitch.

Cute Brianna!

Suzanne said...

You have really stitched this one up quickly and made a start on the next block. I am really amazed.

Can't wait to take my daughters to the aquarium, I sure they will enjoy it just as much.
