Monopoly Monday and Tuesday too

I really wanted to get the lettering done on all the properties on side three so I spent two days on Monopoly this week. One more week should almost finish up side three and then on to the last side. I am shocked at how fast this is going and that I have managed to stitch on it almost every Monday. I really don't enjoy BAP's so that I've stuck with this is a real surprise.

Monopoly Board 6-23
What would a Blog entry be lately without a little finish. I have totally fallen in love with the "No Sew" cube finish. I was thinking that they would be really cute under the Christmas tree like little packages. With no kids at home it's really kinda bare under the tree.

This is "Silly Snowquake" that I stitched earlier this year but didn't finish until now. I thought the pearl headed pins added a look of snow to the finish.

Summer is really here now. We got up to 102 yesterday and the start of heat is here and will stay now until late September. The weatherman said we have chances of Thunderstorms on Thurs and Friday but I'll believe it when I hear the thunder and see those drops fall from the sky. We are planning a day and evening out and won't let a little rain stop us.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

what a great idea of how to use the cubes. I dont put pressies under my christmas tree (they are too tempting to little hands) so this is a great idea fof me to keep in mind.

Monopoly is coming along so quickly.

Cute little "present", Rene! Nice job on finishing. I'll have to try one of those cubes, sometime.

I don't know how in the world you handle the heat. It's been around 80 here and can't stand it,lol. I really liked you idea about using those no sew cubes under the tree. Never would have thought of that.

Great ideas to finish up some Christmas/winter designs and put them under a tree! The no sews are pretty easy to do too! Monopoly looks great.
