HOHRH House 4 Finished :-)

This is a bit of a mini finish for me - some of you know this, but it has taken me just about forever to stitch this one house block - but today I got it done! And yes, I do like the color scheme better now than I did when I first started it. All that mish-mash down by the lawn still looks strange, but the house makes up for it - LOL!

To those who asked yesterday, yes, this is a Vicki Clayton conversion - one of her earlier conversions. I've received a lot of requests for this color conversion, so I created a blog for it and it is linked in my sidebar for you. That way you can grab it when you want it, and I don't have to keep retyping that long list for everyone :-) Vicki will package it up for you if you send her the list.

Instead of starting House 3, I decided to put a little time in on Women of the Mayflower for a couple of hours tonight :-) I just love this sampler. I wish some of the colors were as intense as they appear on the model, but that is the way it goes with hand dyed fibers. I had to special order the fibers as they are not sold locally, so they came in sight unseen. I don't really feel inclined to make changes. I can live with it. I ran out of time though - will have to finish filling in the "1620" box next time!

Stitched on today: Houses of Hawk Run Hollow and Women of the Mayflower

It looks lovely Carol. I think it all works well together now the house is complete.

Very pretty, and congratulations on finishing part nine of MTM. You may have "complained" a bit but it is a gorgeous piece.

Also congratulations on the 2nd place finish by Mr Newman, see I told you he would see better days. I'm a bit disappointed though, I was so hoping Terry would win instead of "him".

Congrats, Carol! Your mini finish and the sampler are both lovely. I just love them! I pulled out my HOHRH yesterday and I'm going to work on it during the next days.
Thanks for sharing, you make me motivated to go on...

Women of the Mayflower is looking good. House 4 done, too : )

Thanx for sharing

I agree on the colors for WOTM, Carol. Occasionally I'll get a little adventurous and change a color but not often.
HORH looks really nice in that color group. A lot of people are doing this project and they all look fabulous but it's nice to see it in a differnt twist as well. Makes reading blogs all that more interesting to see everyone's talents.

Ooooh... I just had another look at your wishlist blog, and I realize you wish for 32-count or higher fabrics... So I'm afraid a 28-count lugana wouldn't make you happy, would it? Dammit! :(

I think it looks lovely Carol (HoHRH), and I love the 'ladies'

The house looks great now it's done. The lawn did look a bit odd at first, but I really like the colours with the house :)

And how did I miss yesterday's post! Hooray! You finished those buildings on MTM!!! Big congratulations! The rest will be so easy compared to those :)

Von said...

Yes, the lawn is quite interesting, but the colors somehow go together now that the block is complete.
