Progress

Lots going on around here. Take a look at this sneak peak of a new project I'm working on.


That was really a tease, wasn't it? I'll share more next week. I will say that I had to go out and buy some embroidery floss today. How is it that I've got a whole box full, but not the exact right color? (I was looking for a mustard color... which I now I have.)

And progress on the house too.

Isn't that brick arch beautiful? The kids and I enjoyed watching the masons put up a big wooden arch over which they laid the bricks and then removed it when everything was set. There will be also be green rustic shutters.

I don't have Bravo in the apartment, so I didn't get to see the Runway finale... grumble. It's not available for download from iTunes yet. I keep checking. I downloaded last weeks episode. Only $1.99 and very easy. How great is that? But, of course, I've seen that Chloe won. I'm not happy about it. I guess I'll have to wait to see the show to really judge.

Can't wait to see....both the quilt and the house (more of it please!)..... And yes. There is a reason why I want one of each of threads....that way you KNOW you have all the colors, right there, at odd hours of the day or night.....

Miss you! Sarah

The house is gawgus!! I knew about choloe before I watched, and wasn't happy, but I think it was the only way for them to go. I wanted Daniel to win!!

How lucky you are to have a house like this one. I am so happy for you. Plus the adventure of living in the Big D, isn't it?
