SAL Updates

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my yard.  We have put up 23 strands of lights on the house and have about 15 to go.  Then we will start putting together the deer, santas, trees, etc.

Here is my progress on my 2 SAL pieces with Debbie.

Almost done with the Chocolate Shoppe - LHN

That reminds me - do any of you hate the black background and the way your pictures come up when you click on them?  It's very easy to change:
go to settings
show case images with lightbox (click no)
Thats it.

Thanks for looking.  Linda

Before and After

It only took me 42 years to get a front yard.

10 tons of rock and a 1,000 sq ft of sod later.

Now I'm getting really excited.  Can't hardly wait to start putting out the Christmas decorations.  We have about 65 pieces (alot animated) plus about 14,000 lights to put on the house.  Will show pics when were done.

Thanks for looking.     Linda

Dog House, Kitty Cottage, Trick or Treat Updates

Hi All,  Greetings from cold and rainy Northern Ca.  Thank you all for the comments.  I so enjoy reading them.
Here are my updates for the week.  Dog House and Trick or Treat are SAL's with Debbie.

This is such a fun stitch.  The only thing I don't like is the two shades of orange in the pumpkin.  You can hardly see a difference.  If I can find something else, I may change it.

We hope to have these pieces done by the end of the year.  We have both joined the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge.  We will be doing SAL's on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

I have decided that this has to be a male cat.  He has caused me nothing but heartache.  I have had to rip him out twice.  lol  I think he's good to go now.

Thanks for looking.   Linda
