At the halfway point

I am really happy that tonight I finally made it to the halfway point of Houses of Hawk Run Hollow! I am at the hump, and next Monday, I will go over the hump. OK, technically, I am not exactly at the 50% mark, as I have not done the personalization in the House 1 block yet. Of course, I will be waiting to do that last since I don't know what year it will be, and some years are wider than others... I looked this up the other day. I did start this on January 1, 2005. Wow, 2.5 years to get to this point - it did spend various amounts of time, though, sitting in my WIP bag, untouched. It feels good to be at this point now.

Barbara's round robin is officially in the hands of the USPS now... keep an eye out for it Annemarie :-)

Stitched on today: Started a gift, and Houses of Hawk Run Hollow

Your HOHRH is like one of my current pieces: I started it in January of 2005, it's probably about halfway done (give or take), and it's spent time just sitting with no work done on it. I'm focused on getting it completed so I don't have that 2½-year (or more) guilt hanging over me.

You're HOHRH look fabulous! It started creeping on my to do file!
(My tastes has certainly changed to sampler stitching, since I have been reading your blog, you are stitching such great pieces!)
Keep up!

Woohoo!! Halfway there, Carol! That is very exciting. I didn't write down the date I started mine, but I have done so very little that it hardly even counts. ;)
