In Stitches

I May Be Sad, But I'm NOT Crazy

In reference to a comment that said that if I am sad when I finish HoHRH I could always start on VoHRH . That would be a big NO. I have definately enjoyed my time with HoHRH, it's been difficult, trying and overall enjoyable. Would I care to repeat it in a slightly different form...no way. The thing I have learned about myself during this stitch (don't you love it when stitching teaches you something) is that I don't like doing projects this big. Now how would I ever know this unless I stitched something this big I ask you...I couldn't. But now I do. Lesson learned. ;)

Here is my latest update:

It's looking good, but slow going. It's so weird when at one point you are just cruising along and getting a lot done and then BAM not so much. It's one of the weird time space temporal disturbances I've run across in this project. But still workable. LOL I have definately decided to count this as 12 projects finished instead of one so that I don't feel so bad that I didn't get as many things stitched at the end of the year. ;D

Greg finished the witch and is now laboring over the backstitch. I am ever grateful he took on this project, I'm not sure I would've had the patience to muddle through. :D Because be forewarned there are a TON of 1/4 stitches in this project and when working on aida it's not always a cake walk. :D

Isn't she pretty? And I can HARDLY wait to finish her into a pillow, cuz I know (well at least I hope) that you all will DROOL over the fabric that I got for it. It's very lovely, in my opinion. :D

I got a head start on my Halloween decorating and did it on Monday. That was a lot of fun! And it looks so festive. I found one more trick or treater to go with the group, cuz everyone needs a kid sister tagging along. I will try to get pics to show. The ones I wanted to post came out fuzzy.

Hope y'all are having a great week! :D

Good work on your latest block of HoHRH. The little witch is looking fabulous, too! Partial stitches are such a bear on Aida. I bet Greg wishes he used a higher count fabric. LOL. I can't wait to see her finished up!

I absolutely love the witch! The fabric is perfect for her :-)

Greg's witchiepoo is adorable. Can't wait to see that fabric for the pillow!

And of course HoHRH counts as 12 projects! Yours is looking fabulous!!

Yep, those houses definitely count as one project each!
I love Greg's witch. Can't wait to see that fabric! ;)

I would also count the houses as twelve projects!
But in the end, you'll be proud to display this beautiful piece!
The witch is a real cutie!
HUgs to you two!

Now, I really do think you need to do the Village...that way you have the whole CITY.....
Love the witch, can't wait for the fabric! As a matter of fact I love the color of the fabric the witch is on...so anything else is just icing on the cake!

Oops, sorry for suggesting it ;o)
Seriously though, I actually contemplated stitching the Village on twelve different pieces of fabric, and then hanging them on the wall together (eventually). Maybe I'll do that when I ever get to stitch A Most Noble Pursuit. The Houses are just too 'housy' to stitch, to my taste.
Anyway, I forgot to tell you that your piec looks SO good, and so does Greg's witch.
