Deb's RR

I finished my house section on Deb's RR last night and got started on my tombstone. I can't quite decide what gruesome saying to stitch on it...hopefully some inspiration will come to me. Unfortunately the colours in my section don't show up too well on this beautiful fabric. Then I have to put my little X-S figure in 'Heaven' and I'm done! Early this time too!!

Its the Labour Day holiday weekend, the last big hurrah of summer and we have some great weather forecasted. We are off to enjoy the last bit of summer weather at the cottage. Which means I better get my stitching bag packed like now!

And Tuesday morning, the kids are back to school. That always means a special dance about the house once they leave! I don't even want to tell you how much $$ I have spent on clothes in the past week. No new stash for quite a while .....

I like your RR contribution. :-)

I'll be doing the happy dance right next to you on Tuesday! And I can commiserate on the clothes thing - my DS#1 seems to have outgrown *everything* from head to toe.... Never mind the school supplies! *bleah*

Oh my....clothing and supplies for school always is expensive...and you have teenagers....so that's worse on the clothing bill!
Your work on the RR is inspiring!

The RR is great! Very ghoulish and creepy with tombstones! I am so glad I don't have to buy all the school clothes and supplies anymore!

I love Deb's RR and your addition to it. As for the Froggy End Cemetery: are you required to fill in a date or a saying? In case of a saying: Google :o)
Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Hi Wendy, love the RR. I just thought of a sentence that Spike Milligan wanted on his tomb stone. - "I told you I was ill". I think that it is actually on his tomb stone.
My son is halfway through his year at school. I informed me yesterday that the school holidays are coming again in a few weeks. OMG LOL.
Hope you have a lovely Labour Day weekend. - Sandra.

Hi Wendy, As one who still lets her mommy buy her clothes from time to time, I am sure your kiddos are grateful!

Your RR looks great.

Hi Wendy,

I hear you about the money spent on clothing. I hope some of it was for you.

Have a lovely weekend.

Thanks so much, Wendy!!! I love your house on my RR! And, the color of your tombie. Anything is fine for the tombie...even a stone face! Hugs, and thanks again, Your friend, Deb
