Final Jack's House Post!

I did it! I finished Jack on the day before Halloween!

The House That Jacks Built II
Prairie Moon
I forget the fabric
DMC floss
Now to get this baby framed before Halloween 2013! Ran back over previous posts to see what fabric I did use -- haha to me -- I never posted the color. Guess this will go down like - How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie pop? The world may never know!

April - thank you so very much for joining me on this little adventure we shared. It has been a pleasure to stitch with you. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

I was stitching on Serenade too -- until Nov 1st! Then I pulled out my other SAL and have been playing with it.

Here's Serenade as of this morning -


There are 4 panels complete - lots of leaves and snowflakes to go. And eyes for the snowman!

This morning finds me doing my Christmas shopping. Shh - no booing and hissing. Started over the weekend and hope that by days end - at least 3 people totally done and a good start on the rest. We even got our wrapping paper and some new ornaments. Bring on Christmas!

Well, nothing will get done if I don't get moving.
Hope this weeks brings you peace and happiness.
Denise

Congratulations on a great finish!! You have made a lot of progress on the winter piece.
Good job on getting the shopping started. It is so much nicer to enjoy the season instead of having to shop.

Jack's House looks wonderful. I finished all my shopping for others (we are buying very little this year) and am still working on finishing the gifts for my parents.
