Winter House and RR

I received word that Cathy got the package i sent her for the SBEBB Winter House Exchange. I stitched her a CCN chart from JCS 2006 Christmas ornie magazine and finished it as a wee pillow. I sent her other goodies too but i don't have a photo, you can see those on Cathy's blog. Funnily enough, if you read my previous post, you will have seen that Jean stitched this design for me too :)I havent done anything on either of my SAL pieces this week (Cirque des Cercles and Dear Diary) because the little free time i had was spent trying to finish of Lizzy's RR to send on to Lesley tomorrow. I finished my square anyway....Here's the whole piece....Doesn't it look great? Lizzy wanted everyone to stitch a LHN Dear Diary chart. It was working on this RR that made me realise how great all the Dear Diary pieces would look together, hence the SAL with Laura and Vonna!

Had a busy weekend. On Friday night my mum and I went for dinner and then went to the cinema to see PS I love You. The film was okay, not as good as the book. Last night we were out at our friends house. Tonight is the usual sunday night girly get together which we havent had in a good few weeks now. Then its back to work tomorrow :(

Have a good week!

They all look great especially the round robin. Its a very clever idea for a round robin.

Jennifer said...

We went to see PS I love You last weekend and I had the same thought about the movie - enjoyable, but not as good as the book.

Anita said...

Very pretty pillow. The RR piece is just awesome.

Its a lovely design so I am not suprised you both chose it lol.

The dear diary pieces look great especially with your names etc on them what a lovely idea.

I didn't realize PS I love You was a book. Will have to look for it at the library!

Your stitching looks great and I love that pillow :)

Laura said...

The CCN is so adorable. And you did a great job stitching the Mary Heaton square on Lizzy's RR. I am going to just try to stitch one of the virtue squares this week on Dear Diary because I have some other exchange projects to stitch. That's the plan anyway. I am looking forward to seeing yours.

Suzanne said...

Love the CCN pillow and the RR is looking really good. I have been following all the RR designs you have been working on and your lovely work inspired me to join the LHN RR. Thank you!

Love the pillow you stitched for Cathy - the colours are gorgeous! Lizzy's RR is looking great too - I'll be watching for it to arrive.

Jenn said...

Your SBEBB Winter House Exchange is so sweet. I love the colors you used to finish it.

I loved reading PS I Love You so much I couldn't go and see the film. I just didn't like what i'd seen of the comercials on how they changed it. I'm gald you had a nice time out with your mum though. :)

Vonna said...

It looks great CHERYL! Yep, that's why I wanted to do one too :)
And the House Exchange...SUPER! :)

Mindi said...

Cheryl - I received the Winter Quaker design from you this weekend, and just wanted to say thank you. It was absolutely gorgeous, and such a perfect thing to stitch for me.

Good tip about the movie, I didn't even realize it was a book, I'll have to pick it up and read it, and pass on the movie.

Barbara said...

It is funny that you sent and received the same design - but it's such a perfect winter house project.

The NRR looks great!!

Heidi said...

It looks great! :)

Barbeeque4 said...

What a great exchange!! The RR looks super!!

Ruth said...

I love your LHN sheepy. I might be just about to start that one myself and I must say I like the blue fabric a lot -- good call! I love that you proved the addage that you reap what you sew.... lol

You know it's not very nice of you to make me want to haul out those diary pieces and stitch with ya'll! lol

Beatrice said...

The winter house and the RR are great. They are both lovely.

Kathy A. said...

The pillow you stitched is just beautiful and your finishing wonderful. Lucky Cathy. Cirque will still be there when you are ready. Have a good week.

staci said...

Beautiful stitching!!! Lizzy's RR is just wonderful!!! It's a fantastic idea and it looks great so far :)

Carla said...

what a lovely pillow...beautifullt finished!!
Love your block on the RR!!

Tanya said...

Wow - that RR is lovely!! I loved the movie, PS I LOVE YOU but yes, the book was so much better. Still a good chick flick though - made me cry buckets! I thought Harry Connick, JR was great in his part. Have you read Ahern's other books? I tried to get into her new one called THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HERE but it was really odd.

I love the way you finished the house exchange - it's lovely, and so different from the way Jeanne finished yours.

The Winter house you sent is lovely :) This RR is a fab looking one ! Well captured with your photo of the morning darkness that us Uk 'rs are having just now, I seem to never turn the lights or heating off at the moment . Never mind it will soon be spring and I love the coziness of winter ;-))

stitcherw said...

Both the Winter House exchange pieces (given and received) look wonderful. How fun that you both picked the same pattern. The RR that you're working on now is looking lovely too.

Schoolgirl lessons was on my wish list also, I want to do it in a deep blue. My LNS has a superbowl sale this weekend, so I now have it on order.

Lynn said...

What a great idea for a RR! Your stitching looks great. I can see now why you'd want to do a DD piece yourself.

timetostitch said...

WOW, I love the RR and the piece you stitched on it. I have to agree your Dear Diary RR will be very pretty. Nice exchange stitching, you pick fun pieces!
