Not Much Posting Going on Here!

Hello Friends! Sorry that I haven't been around much lately. We've been busy with spring sports, end of the school year banquets and a soon-to-be graduation. Life will return to a semi-normal state in about two weeks.

We are enjoying a beautiful Memorial Day weekend. Today, it is absolutely gorgeous outside! We did have some deadly storms go through to the north of us yesterday. A little toddler was killed in the storm. The devastation is unbelievable. A good reminder of how precious each day is!

Today is a holiday in the U.S. - Memorial Day. We honor our veterans and thank them for their service to our country!

I have a set of squares for Fair & Square Round 6 that seem to have gone missing. They were mailed four weeks ago to Sharon in Australia. I sure hope they turn up soon! Another set of Fair & Square blocks are going out in the mail tomorrow so look for pictures later this week.

Over the weekend I finished stitching Michelle's Halloween themed neighborhood. She has 70x70 blocks marked off, but said that we could stitch more or less because of the layout of her piece. I chose to stitch more and used the Halloweed House Sampler from the Drawn Thread as my design. I hope Michelle likes what I have stitched for her!

I see that Katrina just posted an update picture of my Neighborhood. Go to our Neighborhood blog if you would like to see it! It's coming along nicely. Thanks to all who have stitched on it so far!

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and Happy Stitching!

Love what you did with Michelle's round robin. Yours is really pretty, the pictures don't do it justice.

Sorry your fair and square pieces have gone missing, hope they turn up soon.

I have a Son graduating HS 6/8, do you have a son or daughter~ HS or college?

I love Michelle's Neighborhood, her layout is especially clever!!! Your addition is fantastic.

How very sad about the small child. :(

What a great job you have done on Michelle's RR. It is such fun.
Be patient with your squares. The mail these days seems to be held up every where. Some pieces are taking literally months to arrive.
Love your RR too. It is going to be soo beautiful. I had such fun stitching on it.

Michelle's RR looks great - but darn! I had the pattern pulled to stitch on it too - gonna go revisit the stash drawers and see what else I have ;-)
