In Stitches

Raisin' the Roof

I finally got the roof on the old house. :)

I actually have quite a bit more done since this picture, but you get the idea. Since installing the roof, the orange has grown on me. I actually like it with the golden brown...it's still wild, but fun! :) I'm still dragging a bit on finishing this block. I just keep getting distracted. But weirdly, I don't mind that much. Somehow the predictability of picking up the same project is comforting. (I know, I'm strange. :D)

I keep thinking I'll pick up steam but not so far. And truthfully I'm kind of glad not to be doing any holiday stitching this year, it's nice to just stitch whatever I want and not feel obligated towards anything. :)

Greg has been working away on Garfield and he has got a lot done, he's the MEGA stitcher! :D

Garfield is so adorable and I love his bunny slippers. Can't wait to see this one finished. :D Greg is still working on Evangaline too, but off and on. But that project is so pretty, every time I see it I am wowed! :D

Not much else going on...Dancing with the Stars finale tonite, that will be exciting. :D Hope your week is going great!

Great progresses!!!
I have never been on a project such a long time, I always zap. I actually wonder if I could do like you. It's amazing to see how strong-willed you are. And the result will be so wonderful! I admire you...

Take care you two!

The house does look more balanced with the roof, you've gotten a lot done. Garfield is looking good too, I really like the fabric that it is on.

Picking up the same project over and over again would, indeed, be a tedious bore for me, but not stitching any Christmas ornies sounds like something I would really like, too. Or any other obligations. Ah...just to stitch for oneself :o)

Busy, busy little bees aren't you? Your house is coming along nicely.

It's very nice, I love the linen you are stitching it on. Garfield is cute too :-).
