almost done with Block 9

I finished up the middle section of block 9 of the Village last night - I'm so close to finishing this month up I can taste it. I'll do a little before I take Molly to agility tonight. I want to finish up by the weekend. I love the bits of grass sticking up everywhere. I wish more of the blocks had this sort of detail. It really makes it pop. I think I'm going to go back to the left hand side and start row two with block four. It's the boarding house block and I have already charted out Molly's Boarding House to replace what is there. I'm personalizing block four and block six with my pug's names. Molly's Boarding House and Clancy O'Shay Blacksmith. It should be cute.

I continued work on the second greenish knot on BFG. I'm really getting close to finishing this knot and I should do the right thing which is to finish the knot before I start on something new. :-) But I truly don't know how strong I am. Blackbird is calling to me! My threads should arrive tonight, tomorrow at the latest. I'm not sure if I have any linen that will work. I have a couple of pieces that have hunks out of them that would look nice but it would be a tight fit. That should not be a problem since I frame everything myself. I'll see how I feel once I get the threads in.
