Hannah's RR is in NH

OOops- it arrived on Thursday, and with my hectic month, I forgot to post this news until today - I am sorry!

Hanna's RR is safe and sound and my house, and I will be able to get it done quickly and off to Edgar... and Donna, I did receive the papers you sent me that go with it, so all is back in order with Hannah's pretty RR!

Carol's RR

Finally done! I stitched a Halloween house from Bent Creek's Holiday Houses. I took the pictures before I stitched in my initials. Also, Carol, I could have stitched in another tree, but my house is about 4 1/2inches away from the edge. The tree would have taken up another 1 1/2 inches. I wanted to leave you plenty of room to stitch in your own border if you wish and for framing. I hope you like it!

It's off to you, Vonna. I think the post office is closed tomorrow, so if it is, I will mail it on Tuesday... Sorry again for the delay.

Hannah's RR

I stitch that moon in the right corner. It's from Prairie Schooler's When Witches go riding. RR is now on it's way to Carol.

I think Hannah's RR looks great!

Terry's RR

Donna and Terry,

Just letting you know that I received Terry's RR in the mail yesterday!


Just a little note...

I haven't been around too much lately blog-wise. First, I became engaged :) Then, I was busy preparing for the holidays. Then the holidays came - along with tons of family. As soon as it all passed and life was getting back to normal - we were served with foreclosure papers. Unfortunately... or Fortunately? We are renters of a house that is being foreclosed on. We have been paying our rent on time each month, but our landlord has not been paying his mortgage.

This whole situation has caused a lot of stress. I'm really nervous about possibly being evicted at any time by the courts. Our landlord says that the foreclosure is not going to happen... but the papers show that he has not made any payments on the house since August. I checked online and he has not paid the taxes either. Unless the landlord can provide legal proof by the end of the week, we are planning to be out at the end of the month... but we have to find a new place to move to first. I am so scared to rent another house. You just never know these days... I guess.

Vonna - I have just a few more stitches... about 200... to put into Carol's RR and it will be on your way. I also already have a design picked out for Ulla's and it's not too complex, so it should be on time.

Terry - Please e-mail me before you send the next RR my way to make sure I have a good address to send you.

Please bear with me during this transition. I do not foresee getting behind on this. I will keep te group posted if I have any problems.

Finished Vonna's RR

I finished up Vonna's RR tonight - I hope you like it, Vonna!

Scaredy Cats
Waxing Moon Designs - in Black Cats' Halloween
32 ct Belfast Linen Hand Dyed by Vonna, GAST in Raven

I think I am running behind everyone else, even though I thought I was ahead! It might be because I stitched on Shelley's RR and counted it, while everyone else has counted it out?? Not sure how that works...

For me, I figured it was:
July - send mine to Edgar
Sept - send Shelley's to Edgar
Nov - send Ulla's to Edgar
Dec - send Donna's to Edgar
Feb - send Vonna's to Edgar

That MUST be wrong, as Ulla writes she has one she is sending to me now... which somehow means I am late! So, I rushed and did this one, and will have DH mail it to Edgar tomorrow!

Carol's RR

Vonna, I'm running a little late on mailing. It will be in the mail on Saturday or Monday. It took me forever to decide on a perfect little house for it!
