Jayne's Attic Round Robin is home! (and a lot of other stuff)

I saw this quilt in a shop Undercover Quilts in Seattle, isn't it beautiful???

This is a view of the Olympic Mountains near Seattle, it's a 5 minute drive from my cousin's house to see this, it was gorgeous!

Mark picked the big sunflower to dry it out, look at that thing, Curren could barely hold it up!

You know after you have company over for a long period of time, when they leave it takes awhile to get your steam back? I am just exhausted! LOL! I need to have another vacation to recuperate. It was not like I did a whole lot while they were here, you just are thrown off of your normal routine. So the past couple of night I haven’t done one thing. I’ve been nursing a cold too, but that will be better soon. But that isn’t helping me get back to normal either ;)

I’d been working away on Debby’s NRR the past couple of weeks. I like this so far, it has been a challenge to find the time to sit and work on it this month, with my company and school starting and stuff. I will add a gate and some flowers to the right side of the house and a few animals in the front yard. I used a house from a Prairie Schooler chart, and the quilts and tree are from the LHN: Quilt time sampler chart. She said she wanted a country theme and what we’d like in our country house. Well quilts sound awful good to me :)

Also, I have received my Round Robin back from it’s trip across the globe. It went everywhere! Iceland, Europe, and the USA. What a lot of fun it was! It was through the Jayne’s Attic BB. Everyone over there is so sweet if you ever have the chance to meet them. I had them all stitch two Prairie Schooler charts, Autumn Leaves and Winter Winds on a piece of white linen. I think I’ll turn them both into flatfolds so I can display them easily. The stitching on them is beautiful. Thank you to all of you who stitched on this.

Dusty was who mailed to me each time. Her DH had to undergo surgery during the time she had my chart. I told her to take her time with it, and not to worry about stitching on it. She was so sweet to me, and included a beautiful chart by Keslyn’s. It is called “Smile” She even included the threads for it. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that in the package, what a sweetheart. Thank you Dusty!

My husband’s birthday was yesterday, we got him some new wetsuit boots and gloves, and a new shirt. He was happy for that! I also made him chocolate cake, yum :)

I am sorry I haven’t been doing very well about leaving comments, between work, being sick, and all of that I have just been reading your blogs (I am addicted!) I’ll be better to you all though. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit! This was a long post, I have so much to talk about LOL!

I hope you'll be fully recovered from your cold soon! The ol' viruses have begun making the rounds here, too. :(

Love that huge sunflower picture - what a hoot! :D

I love your house for Debby's neighborhood, and how great is it that you've included quilts! Those two Prairie Schooler finishes are wonderful as well!! By the way, that sunflower reminds me of one of those huge flowers you see on a Blackbird Designs or Prairie Schooler pattern.

Your Prairie Schooler house is lovely especially with the quilts. I love the lighthouse quilt. My RR is lighthouses! Your returned RR is lovely. I have seen fall done before but not winter Very nice

Dawn said...

Everything looks wonderful! I hope you get to feeling better soon:)

I, too, feel like I'm in a bit of a fog following a visit from friends or family. Partially as a result from all the activity preparing for the visit, then from the visit itself. Then to not be feeling well too - please get some rest this weekend, Heather! We all need you well. Of course, I suppose your family does too, lol.

The Seattle environs are so spectacularly beautiful - I love visiting there! But I'm always glad to come home to the slower lifestyle of the Tri-Cities. :D

Michelle said...

Hope you get to feeling better soon! THe RR you're working on is beautiful - I love the quilts. Your completed RR is fabulous too - what a great way to get two PS pieces finished!

Cindy said...

Stitch Wizard said...

Oh I just want to mention too that I just really really love the quilts!! If I can't make one, I can at least have them in cross stitch!!! They just really do make a project so warm and country and I am so excited that you included them!!!

Debby :))

Hannah said...

Lovely pictures as always! I love the quilt and the sunflower and the RR and the other RR :) Oh! and the chart!

I hope you get your stitching steam back soon. I am finally starting to get mine :)

Your RR turned out fantastic!

Cathy said...

Sorry to read that you had been feeling under the weather - I hope you are doing better now!

Your Prairie Schooler charts look fabulous!

Carol said...

What a beautiful RR! The PS samplers were a great idea!

I am glad that you have been able to stitch. I am sad you have been sick. The quilt is very nice. I don't think any RR would ever accept a needlepoint piece, not to mention stamped one. Those are the ones I like to stitch.
