Fair and Square

I'm pretty sure my Fair and Square partner doesn't read my blog so here's some pictures of the squares i stitched for Louise. I don't know Louise at all and she doesn't have a blog so im hoping she'll like them. Her profile said she liked "short sayings, especially those relating to stitching" so on looking through my stash i thought this was quite appropriateI posted them on Monday hoping to beat the impending postal strike here in the UK in the next few days.This is a fun exchange!

This is what i've been spending most of my time stitching these days. Not the most exciting picture i know! I'm laying out my RR. It seems to be taking a long time! There are only 6 squares but they're 100x100 so they're fairly big. As you know we will be using LHN designs. Mine is going to be a house theme (i love the neighbourhood RRs but have never been quick enough to join one!) which shouldn't be too hard with LHN designs!

It looks great! I think Louise will like it. Don't know her yet either, but will one day. You are so ahead of me, I haven't even got my linen yet, it's on order! I'm chomping at the bit to get started!

Hi Cheryl,
Just read you blog and I love it. Love what you are stitching and I am thinking that I might have to get Dolls House and stitch it for my 3yo daughters bedroom, you enabler you. Thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog.
I was hoping to start CdC this week-end but I have made an error with the fabric. I thought that a fat quarter would be wide enough, but it isn't so I will have to order a bigger piece, so hopefully I will be able to start it the weekend after.
