Barbara's RR is ready to fly to Annemarie

Earlier today, I finished my block on Barbara's RR. I decided, after quite a bit of contemplation, to stitch the right hand side of Hopeful by Carriage House Samplings for her. I know CHS is Barbara's favorite designer, and the design made me think of a New England farmhouse... also quite a dear concept to Barbara... it was such fun to stitch!
And... isn't this nice?? This is Barbara's RR as it looks now. It is all packed up and I am giving it to Mike to post to Annemarie in the morning. In a few short days, it's world journey will end as it returns to The Netherlands again :-)
Thanks, Barbara, for this wonderful opportunity to stitch for you!

I like how everything blends well, borrowing colors from the other buildings! Very nice Carol!

Oh Carol, as I said before, I can't WAIT to see Barbara's RR IRL! I *think* I know exactly what sort of building I'm going to add and where.
This Neighbourhood is SO gorgeous. Lucky Barbara!
