HOHRH Revelation

Back to Houses of Hawk Run Hollow tonight. I realized tonight that this is not going to be finished in 2007. On work nights, I have about three hours of stitching time. I see that House 1 is well past the one month point now, and still not finished. With six more blocks to go, including House 5, which is solid stitching with the black background, there is no way that on a Monday evening schedule, even every week, that this can be finished by the end of this year. (Now, how was that for a run on sentence??). OK... I saw it coming. I will still work on it every Monday and shoot for a mid-2008 finish, perhaps??

Still waiting for gifts to arrive/be opened... and exchanges to arrive too...

Back to work tomorrow...

Stitched on today: Started an ornament for the Christmas Ornament SAL, and Houses of Hawk Run Hollow

Oh dear. I think the only thing you really can do in this situation is quit your job and just stitch :)

It's looking great!

I think a mid-2008 finish would have me jumping up and down with happiness. There is no way I could ever get this finished so fast. But you're a super stitcher, and I'm sure you'll make it!

Congratulaions on all your progresses. Ann.

Vonna said...

You're making progress...sot hat's all that counts :)
I think your doing a fabulous job! You go girl!

Jenn said...

The piece looks great Carol and your making progress that's what's important. Maybe as other pieces finish durring the year you could pick this up on and extra day or two and that might make it get done a little quicker.

It will get done when it gets done! It's looking great! Keep up the good work.

It's really a huge piece so a mid 2008 sounds like a good plan to me. Especially since you are getting so much done on your other WIP's.

It's gorgeous!

Lauren said...

It'll look just beautiful, no matter how long it takes to finish!

That's why I didn't date mine when I stitched that block...not that I am anywhere near as committed to mine as you are, but I knew I would not finish it anytime soon as it doesn't hold my attention when stitching as the blocks take forever, I get bored with them.

It's looking great and I have no doubt that you will finish it next year.

Barbara said...

I think when I get that far with my HOHRH, I'll date it backwards 100 years or so - at the rate I stitch, the date I put in the block will never actually correlate with the date the project is finished! LOL!

Michelle said...

I'm so impressed you have as much done as you do! It looks great!

KarenV said...

At least you're making progress on it. I haven't touched my VoHRH for months!

Carol-thanks for the sympathies-Angel is my boyfriend's brother's and his family's kitten who passed away on Saturday.
As for the Yankees-unless Clemens can work some magic.....

Carla said...

its incredible how you can stick to your rotation for so long...there is no way I could do that :S
BTW HOHRH is looking fabulous :)

Rob said...

You are doing a great job on it! Maybe some of the houses will move a little faster....

Your big HOHRH will take a long time, I understand that. But it’s okay to take your time and even put it aside for awhile, there is just so much out there to make, it’s hard to decide exactly how much time you want to devote to something.

I love the Spring Ride chart, I always see it and almost pick it up… seeing you stitch it just might make me do that now :D

It is looking great and moving right along. However, since it is a huge piece, targeting mid-2008 might be a bit more realistic, especially with all the other items you have going. Then if you get extra time or it moves faster than expected it is a pleasent surprise (rather than hitting Dec. 31 and not being finished and being disappointed).

You could set your alarm an hour earlier, and stitch for an hour in the morning.

I know I always have aspirations of doing that. Doesn't quite work out that way, but it's a thought...

Charlene said...

Awesome piece. Keep it up !

Lelia said...

There is a ton of stitching on that sampler!!! You are doing a great job, so far ...

Carol, as long as you're enjoying it... it dosen't matter when you're going to finish it!
