UFO Finish and 2 other projects

The other night I had been stitching on my Victorian Village (see below) and a commercial for Chocolate milk came on and it just looked good!!!  So I texted my DH, who was on the golf course, and he stopped on the way home to get me some chocolate milk.  I enjoyed every bit of it!!!

Friday through Monday was spent on my Victorian Village.  I am following my 4 day rotation and it is going GREAT!!!!  I started the barber shop and was able to finish the top of it.  Next rotation, I hope to finish this shop!

On Tuesday, I started my Summer Ball piece.  I was able to add more wallpaper and columns.  This is the start of page 2.

I FINISHED my summer nine patch design!!!  LOVE how it turned out. I think I am going to finish it as a throw pillow for the couch.   Unless someone else has another idea  or suggestion for finishing the design!

Funny Student Moment this week:

Written on Student paper:  I hate Mrs. Hartwell with a Postion.

My written response:  I think you meant passion!

Gotta love teenagers!!!!

If you drank that whole bottle in one setting, it's no wonder you got so much done!! I won't let Mariah drink them because of the sugar! Great progress on the 2 pieces. Nine Patch looks great!

Great progress on your stitching.
I love the Nine Patch & think it would look awesome as a pillow.

Your WIP's look great!!!!! You are getting a lot done. Your Nine patch design is beautiful. Who is the designer for that? Thinking I would like to have that in my stash to do someday.

LOL, too funny about the student. Thanks for sharing it!

Congrats on your finish. It's so cute. :)

Glad to hear the 4-day rotations are working well for you. I use a weekly rotation, but sometimes I "mix-it-up" and stitch a little longer (like with JG).
