And a RR makes its way home


What a great mail week! Look what found its way to my door, after making its way across Canada, the U.S. and Australia. My neighbourhood RR is finished!!




I love the houses that everyone chose for their areas and all the little extra's make it so fun to look at. I think I'll add a border around the neighbourhood and stitch in all the names of each person beside their home. Huge huge thanks to (starting at the top going left to right) Glenna, Carol, Nicole, Deb, (centre house is mine) Bine, Carissa, Karen and Leslie!

And now just a peek at some sewing/quilting I've been working on ~

Your RR is absolutely gorgeous! All the ladies seemed to have outdone themselves. I like your idea of putting the stitchers's names next to their homes.

Great RR Wendy, some fabulous stitching there!

I've been catching up with blogland recently and can see I've missed loads going on with you! The wedding photos are lovely :) I hope you're continuing to recover after the surgery too! {{hugs}}
