Goals

I decided to work on Houses of Hawk Run Hollow tonight, for the first time in almost a month. I achieved a mini-milestone by finishing House 3 (upper left), and now I am 1/3 finished with HOHRH. Finally, a reasonably sized fraction.

Part 11 came out for Mystery IX today... and finally, I think this part is going to really help to pull the design together. I will probably start on that tomorrow. I can't really guage how long this part is going to take, but it doesn't appear to be as large as Part 10 was.

The new issue of The Gift of Stitching (see sidebar to left) also came out today - another pretty good one. Kirsten is doing a great job with this huge task of putting out a decent online stitching magazine every single month! I love the little wren box top by The Cat's Whiskers.

I have to admit HOHRH is one design I don't have the slightest desire to stitch, but I love watching you stitch it :) Can't wait for this month's progress on IX :D

I love watching your progress on HOHRH - it is a project I plan to get back to after the pre-holiday rush. Congratulations on completing 1/3 of the design!!

You did an incredible amount of stitching in October!! Good luck with the latest part of your Chatelaine! :)

You have such large projects, they are all gorgeous :) I am working on Mermaids of the Deep Blue now, and yours is stunning, I LOVE the fabric you chose for it.

Hi Carol, you did a tremendous amount of stitching during October :) I was so pleased we finally managed to get our SAL done. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Michelle said...

Woohoo! Looks great. And you did really well on your goals this month. I think part 11 looks great, and I agree does seem to pull it together.

You certainly got a lot done in Oct., that's quite a list. Houses is coming along great too. My favorite so far is the blue one in the bottom right corner.
