Last house and a happy family

Last Thursday we got notice our DS passed his final exams on high school. He did very well and so we are the proud parents of a student-to-be!
Yesterday evening I finished the last house of HOHRH. One final block to stitch, but that is only the saying, so I expect this to be a quick stitch.

Now I have to think about what I'm going to do for a new start. I have some WIPS, but every BIG finish needs a new start, don't you think?
I have kitted up quite some things, but among them a Mirabilia, Christmas Flourishes. I won it in a give-away at our HAED blog several months ago. Maybe I'll start that one.

Congratulations on your almost finish of the HOHRH. I commend you I could not stitch all those houses. However, I do have Shores and Villages to do however, I have not started either. Maybe this coming week.
Your quilt will be lovely no matter what you decide to do. Glad your DS pasted high school. Now to college. Your crazy exchange looks like a lot of fun with your friends.
Enjoy your blog!
You are also doing Holland Springtime and when I saw yours I bought it too, just before it was over. Have started it but not much done with it yet.
God Bless ~

What an amazing piece. I've started this but it is presently resided in the WIP basket. Perhaps it will see the light of day sometime this summer. You definitely deserve a great new start project. I'm sure you'll find something wonderful -- thanks for sharing.
