In Stitches

Feed me, Seymour!

With more feedback! LOL I confess, your kind praises and words of support inspired me to work really hard on my project this weekend. I got so much done that I was amazed with myself...really, no kidding. ;) Thanks to everyone who stopped in and helped me feel better! :D

Not only did I finish the final top block, but I decided to go ahead and fill in the back ground on my first block. :) I love how block 4 turned out, darkening the color was a bit of a pain, but it looks so much better. :D

I decided not to go stark black for the background, it seemed too harsh. So I went for DMC 844 which is dark grey and used one strand. I like the softness of it much more than the strong black.

Here is an overall view. I'm 2/3 of the way through! I can't believe it! :D It's going to be weird working on the bottom row. LOL But now that I'm that far along I am hoping to grab some inspiration and get moving along. ;)

Greg is still working away on his terrier. Here's his latest update!

It's starting to really come together, he's doing a great job, as always!

Well, I'm feeling better and back to work. Not 100% yet, but close enough. ;) I get a flu shot on Wednesday, so I'm hoping that will help keep that at bay and hold me over till Spring. ;) (crosses fingers) Hope everyone else is feeling great and doing well. I've got a lot of blogs to check out and "howdy's" to leave. :D

congratulations on your progress and good idea to turn the background into the dark grey instead of black. It does give a nice subtle shade. Ann.

The whole thing looks great! I think the background looks good with using the DMC844 instead of black. I am going to have to make a note of that for when I stitch this...some year. :0)
Your DH's project is looking good too. I am a dog lover so I really enjoy seeing this come together.
Happy Stitching,
Annette

Hey, what happened there? Suddenly you've got your block finished, AND improved on a previous one? I must say, I love the colour changes for both blocks, and I might even steal the idea of the 844 background off you, for the Village...

Kim! You made the perfect choice with the darkening of the first block! And it's amazing how hard you've worked on it all! It looks awesome!
Greg's progress is amazing as well!
I hope the flu shot doesn't make you sick, as you're already tired with the poisoning and the cold...
Sending you lots of hugs and more encouragements!

Kim, I enjoyed seeing the changes you made to the colors, totally agreeing with you about the stark black background. Yours in 844 one thread is perfect!!

You are doing a lovely job! Look how much stitching you got done in one weekend...you are making me look like a stitching slumper!! :o)
Excellent job and Greg, is doing a FAB job on his terrier!
You need to give pats on the backs all around!

Great work on HoHRH! I know that you were dreading having to fill in the background on the one block, but it really does look good. :)

The houses look great. Love your husband's dog piece too.
