4TH SQUARE FINISH!

When I ran out of floss on Casting A Spell. I picked up stitching on BBD - AOTH. I finished off square 4.  This is my daughter RaeAnne's square.  I just put her name under the house. Birth date in upper right corner and the year down the side by the flower on the left. I ordered floss for the next block, Farm House. The Lexington Green that came in does not match the Lexington Green I had. Urghhh!!!  I am picking the darker one with a gray green color. The one sent to me was a really light grey. No variegation whatsoever! That is why I hate having to buy floss on-line and not being able to shop in a store.
I am back to stitching on Casting A Spell today. I should have it finished today. I only needed a little bit of floss. I'm getting a lot stitched while watching Dark Shadows - The Beginnings. Can't seem to make it outside, Rain rain and more rain!
I turned on the TV to the news of maybe a royal baby today!! I'm finding out some interesting things. Like the baby will have 4 names, what they will be is being bet on heavily. The news says the Duchess is in good hands with the former OB/GYN the Queen used.  Ok... How old is this Doctor? Did he deliver her sons?  lol Then I got to wondering about how the Mother of Kate is doing.. I know I was there for both my grand children's births. Will she?  Oh well, I will leave it to the News Media.
I will post a picture tomorrow of Casting A Spell and the wooden box.  Till later.....

There is an etiquette for naming royal babies: there has to be an element of tradition and of course fit the future king or queen. I would be very surprised if it is a girl if it is called Diana, but they might have it as a second or third name. And yes, there will probably be several names and we usually dont find out the names at first because they have to be approved. I love the stitching and understand how frustrating it is not having a LNS to browse and actually see what you are buying xxx

Love the finished square, April! And your bag finish from last post is adorable too.

Now that we know it's a boy, I can't wait to hear what they name him. I am very happy for them both; they seem to truly be in love.

Oh this block is beautiful! I love the way you worked in your daughter's info. This block is my youngest son's birthday month. Thanks for the inspiration.

I'm working on the AotH too. I'm up to November & hope to finish the whole thing by the end of the year - fingers crossed.
