Coming Home

I finished my square on An's RR tonight and now it is going to head home as soon as my DH can get to the post office tomorrow! I stitched several parts of Monkey Sampler by Midsummer Night Designs. I had to make a bunch of color changes as I know An is not a pastel lover, and the chart is really very pastel. I just had to stitch these monkeys for her! I have known what I wanted to stitch for her since this RR started, but I had to wait since I was last to get it :-)

And, here is how the whole thing looks now! I cannot wait to see what An adds - especially where she is going to add the elf in her block :-)

The RR will travel home in a well-worn purple mailer that was probably supplied by Dianne :-) The British customs sticker will not come off easily, so I put white stickers over it. Mike has made friends with our local postal staff, so he will have them just ignore the worn envelope and put the US customs form on top of the stickers - LOL!!

As for my RR, I sure hope to see mine someday soon too. BeckySC has it at the moment. She volunteered to stitch Novia's block for me. She is in the midst of a family crisis, so I told her to take her time with it. I emailed Rachael some bit ago to see if/when she wanted to work on mine... Rachael, are you out there?? Please email me - thanks!!

Hope everyone is enjoying the end of the summer now!

Just to let you know

That Helen received her mum's NRR earlier this week for safe keeping. She's going to spruce it up as it was really folded into a small mailer.
Can't wait to see the other finishes. Carol is giving us some nice peeks at An's on her blog. I really like how hers looks next to mine-bosom buddies there. ; )
