MTM Part 9 is (finally) finished - all buildings are done!

What a relief! This has been a long haul - for the past four months those of us stitching MTM have had to stitch a long, detailed row of buildings each month... now, I am finally done with those! For the next three months, we will be working on the border... hmmmmm...

Annette had expressed an interest in seeing the Jessica stitches... this picture looked blurry on the scanner, I think I cropped it down too close. But, let's see if Blogger makes it look any better??

I got great news in the mailbox today :-) My registration for LTD's 18th Century Historical German Garden class went through for CATS in September! Woo Hoo!! And, I talked with Mike - we will probably now stay through Friday night instead of through Thursday :-) (What I cannot figure out, though, is why the class is an 18th C. garden, but if you buy the chart or kit elsewhere it is a 17th C. garden - LOL!!)

Now, off to stitch on one of my projects on which I have fallen woefully behind... now, that leaves me a lot of choices!
I chose to work on the much neglected Houses of Hawk Run Hollow tonight. I am really glad that I did - have to get it done so I can stitch Village of Hawk Run Hollow, right?? Anyhow... almost done now with House 4! Just have to add the little bit of tree, its leaves and the other apple....and then the border around the block.... it has taken me forever to stitch this house block, so I will also be relieved when it is done!

Stitched on today: Medieval Town Mandala and Houses of Hawk Run Hollow

Great job on MTM! It's breathtaking!
I'm sure you are happy dancing all over the place! Looking forward to seeing the borders, too!

Carol, that is the most incredible thing I have ever seen. Nice job! I didn't realize there was a border too. I can't wait to see it finished. I went to the shop in Bedford today and shopped, shopped, shopped. Very, very bad. I need a clone that can stay at home and stitch all day and maybe I'll have all my stash stitched by retirement. :)

Congratulations on finishing the current section of MTM! HoHRH is looking lovely too :)

Judith said...

Yes, I know how happy you are that it is finished. LOL I had the same feeling. Now I am looking forward to how she will do those corners in parts of three.

Lisa said...

Wonderful progress pics, Carol! I hope to post one tonight of your NRR. ;) Glad you got in on the 17/18th century garden group!!

Heather said...

Congratulations on your finished MTM Carol.

Have you seen in the gallery on Hand dyed Fibres, HOHRH stitched over one? It's amazing. Yours is looking great too.

Isabelle said...

Congrats on getting all those houses finally done, Carol. It is so beautiful. I hoe the following parts will be less enormous.
HOHRH is looking great as well. Have fun stitching the rest of your WIPs :)

Yayyy!! Well done on MTM Carol:) BTW you asked me about whether the Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year. It sure is. From the Winter Solstice on, the days start getting longer as we head towards the Summer Solstice which is the longest day of the year. From the Summer Soltice the days start getting shorter:)

Annemarie said...

Some of us sleep, some of us work :o) You certainly performed a miracle, Carol, MTM looks fantastic! So does HoHRH. Those colours really do work, now that the house id nearly up, don't you think?

Jenn said...

It looks great Carol. Mmm 3 months left for the border. Interesting I can only see from the photo that there would be 2 months. Wonder what I'm missing. Now relax sit back and enjoy catching up on your other pieces. :)

Joy said...

MTM is amazing, it's been fun seeing it grow as the weeks come and go. :)

Deb L said...

The Jessica stitch looks interesting. Congrats on finishing the buildings- they look gorgeous!!

Jenna said...

Woohoo! What a fabulous job you've done of the buildings. I'm so glad that you were able to get through it with a week to spare for other projects. :)

Lelia said...

Woot! Construction Completed! Looks very nice Carol : )

LOL - no, you don't really have to finish Houses of Hawk Run Hollow to order the Village of Hawk Run Hollow!! It is a great project, just order it : )

Concetta said...

Congratulations on completing those houses, Carol. :-) It's looking gorgeous... the hard work was totally worth it. You're using Vikki's silks for HoHRH, right? I've heard such varying opinions on the colours in the conversion, but yours looks beautiful. I'd buy the VC conversion in a second just by looking at your WIP.

Susimac said...

Well done Carol on finishing the buildings on MTM, it looks amazing.

Kath said...

WOW that is looking gorgeous Carol. Not much more now.... LOL.

Nice to see progress on RHH too, that is looking good also.

You are so inspirational.....

Gill said...

Congratulations, it looks very impressive. You have my admiration for getting all those houses done every month.

Katrina said...

wow Carol, its so impressive! have fun stitching on some of your other projects!

Thanks for the close up on the Jessica stitch. MTM is looking so beautiful.

Michelle said...

Congrats on finishing the last of those buildings! They look beautiful. And your HOHRH is looking great as well. What a productive weekend - you really did stitch up a storm!

Carol! Congrats on finishing Part 9. It'll be fascinating to see what's in store for this piece. :D
