empty train

I swear I'm one of the few Americans working today judging by the amount of people on the train into the office this morning. Talk about empty! Even the streets are empty.

I managed to get a ton done this weekend. Below is my progress on House #2 of HoHRH. I worked on this baby for hours and I feel like I'm finally making some progress. Oh, look, is that a Quaker Turtle checking out the roof? Why it is! :-) I finished the first of my turtles last night. It was much easier than I thought it would be but they do take a long time to get all the parts complete. This one is the needlebook and it opens up. When I'm finished with all four, I'll take better photes of both sides (and insides!).
Here is my Isa V Grand Marquior - I made no progress this morning on the train into the office as I slept for the entire ride. I have a cold and I'm finding it very hard to resist naps. :-) Only the letter H to go for this go around.

That turtle is adorable!!! Great progress on your pieces - even with all the naps. I had to work on Monday too - although I would have loved to have had a stitching day!
