A little change of plans


I changed my stitching plans tonight. I was getting ready to work on Spring Ride when I realized I was pretty into a football game on TV and wanted to work instead on something that did not require much attention or counting. Houses of Hawk Run Hollow fit the bill perfectly tonight! And I figure it will give Karen a chance to catch up a little since she did not get to stitch on Spring Ride much the last two weeks :-) So.... the busy block is growing some more...

Here is the Mirabilia design in the new issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework. My scanner is not hooked up right now (all my ports are busy with other things), so I tried to take a photo of the page for you. Not the greatest photo, but you get the idea. It is called Victorian Christmas Eve. She is cute :-)

And, hello from Angus! He has been here on the floor in front of my stitching chair most of the night. He has a lot of fans who ask how he is doing. It is coming up close to a year now since his medical emergency, and he seems to be doing pretty well :-)

Stitched on today: Stitched on Specific Designer (LHN) Exchange, and Houses of Hawk Run Hollow

Really? A year? OMG I thought it was just a couple of months ago. Where is the time going? I'm so glad he's doing well. The Mira lady is cute, but not as cute as young Angus :o)

That house is growing. I think it's quite deceptive looking at the photo's of this one. They are so much larger IRL than they look on the photo's aren't they.

Victorian Christmas Eve is lovely! Are you going to do that one also? And HOHRH looks wonderful.

Happy Anniversary on good health Angus and continue to feel well!

Isabelle said...

Eek! I don't like that new Mirabilia! Never mind LOL

Congrats on you progress on HofHRH. Looking great!

Hello, Angus! You're beautiful. Can't believe it's already been a year since he was ill - it feels more like 3 months to me. Another eek!

Have a good week!

Angus is one handsome man. We had a cat in the shelter last week that looked alot like him. Happy to say he was adopted to a wonderful home. THOHR is coming along nicely. The Miri is indeed cute.

I'll have to see if I can find the magazing I like the new Mira lady. Very pretty.

HoHRH is coming along nicely and it's good to get to see Angus again. I'm glad he's doing well.

What a sweet kitty! Glad he is doing well! My Daisy has been coughing some, don't like to hear her cough. I so want that Hawks Hollow pattern for Christmas. I emailed all my family hoping that they will get it for me, even linked it for them! haha

Wow, time seems to have flown by. I can't belive it has been a year. That's wonderful that Angus is doing so well, he looks great.

Houses is really coming along well too, and the new Mirabilia one is very pretty. I don't remember seeing a project of that size by them in a magazine before.

We haven't got that issue on the stands yet but you can bet I'll be watching for it. I'm a big Mirabilia fan. Thanks for the heads up!
Houses is really growing. It's been so fun watching you work on this one.
I can't believe that it's been a year already since Angus had problems. He looks pretty comfy right now!
