Barnyard - Snapperville

I completed the barnyard on Thursday night around midnight. This project is coming out nicely. I have 3 more blocks to stitch and the border. I was looking at the border color and am going to have to change it. The color blends into the fabric. I think I'm going to go with ecru. I can't wait to get this one finished and framed. It is going to be so cute. I took a picture of the three blocks completed. Isn't is adorable. I usually don't like primitive patterns but this one doesn't seems so primitive and quakerish. I generally feel that if I can draw it then I'm not paying for it. Mind you I can't draw. My sisters and nephews laugh at my drawing. That's why I picked this pattern. I can draw the houses but everything else would look ridiculous.

This afternoon I am going to my youngest sister's house for stitching and a movie with our stitch group. I plan on working on the Fireside Stitchery Seasons Squares because I am about 6 months behind which means 6 squares behind. I think I can get a couple of them done today. They are quite simple if you follow the directions.

I have the whole next week off for Thanksgiving. So, I plan on stitching a lot and working on my dissertation proposal. I have quite a few projects that I want to get complete. I don't expect to get much completed but I hope to get closer to the finish.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
