making progress

I've made some progress the past couple of days on Farm House. I haven't managed to stay awake on the train ride into work but have managed to stitch on the way home. I'm hoping now that's is light (or almost so) when I leave the house in the morning, soon I'll be staying awake on the way in also. :-) It would be good to get back into the swing of things. I think when I finish this block I'm going to take a break for this piece and work on something else. Maybe a small finish will motivate me to work more on my stitching. And I have so many to choose from. :-) It will be fun just to look though my stash.

Not much news on the house front. The sellers now have a contract from me and I'm hoping for short sale approval from their bank within the next 60 days. That's pushing it but I don't want to be held hostage by them and I'm thinking more houses will come on the market starting in the summer. Cross your fingers for me. I originally didn't want to go the short sale route because not many are approved. But it was just too good of a house not to take the chance. Walking into a house with $30,000 of equity in this market is worth the try. :-)

Your cross stitch, as always, is lovely.
Keeping my fingers crossed for you on the house! I can't believe you plan on fostering when you get a house!!! More power to you. Not having a fenced yard, I only foster one at a time and ocassionally have my Loocie, too.
Happy Easter.
Pug hugs :)

Good luck with the house!

I thought of you the other day when we bought some agility equipment so we can start Stella on "fun agility." I think she's going to love it! I'll let you know.
