Happy Monday!!
Block 5 is done

Villages of Hawk Run Hollow

You know I preordered the BBD halloween stocking booklet

I received some frightfully great mail this past week

Lori RAk'd me with this adorable chart

Boo name Tag by Bent CreekThanks!! Lori, Your a real sweetie

O.K. I started this like a week ago 1/1 on 32ct Cognac. The witches hat by CindyMae Designs

I just can't get this done with all the frogging on the quaker design. I break the thread trying to get the little stitches out. Then the frog poop is another problem with such a small design. I try to use tape but I don't want it to pull on the stitches that are done and make then fuzzy. Oh well!!

Kitchen update:

The plaster is now dry after a week. I painted (we won't talk about the color) where the cabinets are going. I think there will be tile for the backsplash after my paint choice. The cabinets are being installed today, anytime now. I will have a photo in a day or two.

First of all, *LOVE* the new blog template! That's the one I wanted, but they didn't have a 3 column version.

Your HRH is looking wonderful!

LOL about the "frog poop" :) I haven't heard it called that before, but it is so appropriate!

Hope your kitchen is back in business soon.

Peg said...

Love all your scissors! They look nice in that display. Dancing on the Moon is looking great too. On your fuzzies after frogging.....one of the older ladies in my stitch group uses that lint roller to pick up the fuzz. It really works and it doesn't wreck your stitches.

Kim B said...

Wow your HRH is really looking great Ranae!!!
