Everything regarding the house repairs has been worked out with the buyers and soon I'll be in packing mode. We are trying to do as much as we can ourselves, but I'm still looking at options. Moving is expensive!

That's a lot of orts, ladies!
Update on the house: We had the inspection on Friday. They were here over four hours! We came back to find little orange stickers stuck all over the house. They irritated the heck out of me so I removed them. Saturday I met with my realtor to go over the list of repairs they'd like me to make. Considering the stickers, it was a relatively short list. I agreed to all but four of them, and we were pretty satisfied that they wouldn't object. So I get a call yesterday evening from my realtor saying they realllly want one of the items taken care of. This just happens to be one of those things that you just can't repair and have it be right. The whole thing would have to be replaced which I'm told they don't expect me to do. My response was no, based on the fact that I know they won't be satisfied with the repair. I haven't heard anything back, which I find odd considering everything has been rush, rush, rush up to this point.
Anyway, I have a certain sheep's blanket calling my name. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

I had such an emotional crash and burn this morning. If there's such a thing as seller's remorse I had an acute case of it. So I did the only thing I could possibly do to feel better... I started a new project! I decided I'd join in the Happy Home Sampler SAL that BeckySC started on her blog. Even though I'm behind on my May goals, I needed something new to take my mind off this incredibly stupid thing I've just done (haha!). All that counting and recounting proved to be just the therapy I needed! Here's my start: I haven't done a stitch-a-long in ages, so this will be fun for me. I'm already looking forward to next Thursday, and to watching everyone's progress!

I do have a finish the share! I put the last stitches in Lizzie Kate's "Listen" Saturday night after dinner.
I made a small boo-boo on the letter S, but I've left it for now. If I correct it I'll have to restitch the T-E-N as well. I'm thinking I can live it. Here's a photo of the whole thing so far...
Oh my! The wrinkles! Is there Botox for linen?

Spring Has Come! by Prairie Schooler
I have quite a ways to go on this one, but it's a nice break from the tiny stitching on VoHRH! I plan to keep working on it this month, so we'll see how much more I get done. These big projects kinda scare me but I'd hate to see this one become a UFO!
Village of Hawk Run Hollow (Block 3) by Carriage House Samplings
I started on Block 3 because I was initially stiching it without the Q-Snaps and I didn't want to be wadding up blocks 1 & 2 in my sweaty hand. I'm using Vikki Clayton silks and so far I love them! It's been a little rough working on the 40-ct. linen but my light and magnifier help tremendously. I'm taking it slow!
On to May goals!
1. Work on VoHRH.
2. Work on Spring Has Come!
3. Start and finish Listen (the next Lizzie Kate Double Flip).
4. Start and finish May Woolly Tyme Blanket.
Two littles, and two bigs! Perfect for me! And I can't forget my UFOs this month! They're getting sad!
