A couple of progress updates

Woohoo!!! I finished another page on the dollhouse picture! The pages on this are a little weird because it was in a magazine - so some pages are actually two or three different sections. But in this case...it really was a full page. This one is a lot of fun to stitch...but it gets a little neglected. It's my work project (except I'm only working two days a week now, so I've lost three other lunch hours/week) and it was my Girls' Night Out project (when our stitching group was getting together every other Friday night). But....we've kind of quit doing Girls' Night Out because the store changed their hours - they close an hour earlier, so it's really hard for those members who work to feel like they get enough time in. I can't fault the store - apparently by closing an hour earlier, they were able to save enough money to avoid any layoffs.


And this is my update on "Stop and Stitch the Flowers" - a Blue Ribbon Designs. This is another real easy stitch (I guess I felt like I needed a couple to make up for MawMaw's Quilt and Angel of Cross Stitch!). I'm doing one block at a time so I don't get tired of all the green outlining.

And Naomi liked her cube yesterday - although she was a little confused with the bow on top, she thought it was something she got to open! LOL Her recital was cute but LONG (all sorts of age groups - I think I would have enjoyed it more if they did just the little kids in the afternoon and the older kids in the evening. Instead they did EVERYONE in the afternoon, and everyone except the little kids in the evening. So those poor folks had to do it all twice! (Thanks goodness NOT Naomi's group!)

Anyway - thank you (as always) for checking out my blog. I do appreciate it!!

It always feels good to get to the end of a page, almost like a finish. The flowers are beautiful, a nice project to relax with

i LOVE the dollhouse!!! I always wanted one when I was a little giro..never got it. Have thought about getting one as an adult but do not have the room LOL This gets added to my wishlist for sure!!! What magazine was in it? Another question, how do you get your pics to get bigger when clicked?

Your dollhouse is looking great. Glad to hear that your LNS was able to avoid layoffs. It's amazing what an hour here and there can salvage. Your flower piece is very cute.

Doll house looks great, a page is a page, is a page. NO matter how you look at it. Your flower piece looks nice too! Too funny about her wanting to open the cube!!!
