Monopoly progress



Well, I've finished the third side of the board, and I'm starting on the home stretch. (Well...there is the pesky logo in the middle of the board, so I can't REALLY say I'm 3/4 of the way done, but....at least there is an end in sight).

I'm trying to get back into a normal rotation. I'm working on Monopoly, BoInk, Angel of Cross Stitch, and MawMaw's Quilt (at home - trying to do one week at a time on each, switching over on Sundays).
At work I've started on my Victorian Dollhouse, which is going to be a LONG slow process (finished size is 13 x 17 or something like that!).
My travel projects are two Lizzie Kate Snippets - one of them says "Work Hard, Pray Long, Trust God" and the other one says "Live Simply, Laugh Often, Love Deeply". I'm thinking I'm going to finish them into either a two sided flat fold or a cube of some kind and give them to my niece. She and her hubby are the parents of four kids...two of whom have had rough stuff in their short lives (Dominique - the oldest - was a 2 lb. 2 oz premie, and Anthony - the youngest - was our little cancer patient this past summer). Both of them are AWESOME now, and my niece and her hubby struggle to make ends meet, but they are the happiest little family ever. So...they live by those mottoes, and I'd like to reinforce them for them!

I will be better about posting progress....and I do appreciate everyone's feedback!
