A Whole Neighborhood

Finally! I got the middle row done! Whew! That was a task and a half. Seems it's taken forever to get through these first 4 houses. But it is looking good. Here is the latest finish:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


I think this is my favorite of all 4. The blue house is nice, but this one just has something about it that I like. I think that I am going to spend the time to put in all the blocks before starting the next house. It will take a bit of time, but it will also be out of the way and with the first 4 established it won't be as hard to get the rest situated.

And because someone was curious to see what the whole thing is looking like:

I think that when it's all done it will be very impressive. Right now I'm just a bit overwhelmed with it. ;)

We went to see Pirates and I wasn't a bit disappointed! Johnny Depp is epic, I think this is the best character I've ever seen him play. He just seems to enjoy it so much. It was a hilarious show, LOVED the story and LOVED the ending. Can't wait to see the next one out in 2007. The critics can rag it all they want but I thought it was *better* than the first one. :D

hi Kim,

enjoy the other two third.

Wow, you are really moving along on this project! It is a large endeavor, but you make it look easy. :) Glad to hear that you liked Pirates II. I read a really bad review of it, but it just made me all the more determined to see it. I'm not sure what the critics' problem is...

I'd say this is already impressive, Kim! It looks fabulous! Give yourself a big pat on the back!!

Wonderful house! Looks great so far.

DD saw the movie at a midnight showing -- she strolls in around 3am & said it was good + J.Depp is 'hawt'.

I say, what do the critics really know anyhow???

Congrats on finishing your fourth block. I like this one too. I think it's the geese. The four together look very impressive. No reason at all for you to feel overwhelmed after what you have accomplished already. You have the patience of a saint.

Glad you liked POC. I'll need to make plans to go and see it too. Promised a friend I would go with her.

Hi Kim! At last, I can reach your blog! How lovely! My fav of all for the moment is the second on the right, just a small head behind comes the one you have just finished: the birds are a nice change!
I am a fan of Johnny Depp and he seemed to have great fun in Pirates of the Caribbean I already... I'm looking forward to POC II in DVD...
Lots of hugs!

Ooh, I just noticed I haven't commented on this entry yet. Shame! And it's such a great entry! I can't believe you've come this far already. You'll be finished in no time if you continue like this. If only the Tour would last a few weeks longer. Tom Boonen quitted today! I can't believe it!

Wow... you've made fantastic progress on HOHRH. It looks great.
