A quick update

Since I haven't posted in a bit, I thought I would just give another peek of the surprise project that I am working on. I am pretty sure the recipient never reads my blog, but just in case I don't want to reveal too many details. It is great fun designing and stitching these little 6 inch blocks. Sorta makes me want to start a project of small blacks for myself. :)

Thanks to everyone who has sent me good wishes for the sale of my house. The current situation is that our closing is scheduled for Monday, April 22 and that everything is ready to go. I have learned that celebrations are not in order until the final check has cleared but we are guardedly optimistic.

Update: just found out that our buyer was told today that his job was probably being eliminated in a few weeks and that this deal is over. Relisting tomorrow. And while I hate to ask, please pray for us to have a quick simple sale. My stress level is overwhelming!

Feeling a bit under the weather today, with a cold, so I think a little had stitching is in order. Or maybe some new machine project. Hmm, so many choices. :)

Your blocks are lovely. I just got over a cold. There's nothing better for it than a little quiet stitching.

I'm praying for your house sale situation. We have had a sale go wrong so know the disappointment.
Very beautiful blocks and I hope you feel better soon!

I will pray that you not only feel better sooner than soon, but that your home will sell in a snap!

Now on to the blocks... Fabulous!
