HoHRH


It's still very humid here, but I did last longer with my stitching today. I picked up HOHRH again tonight and starting working on House 9. Love the colors at the top of this one - lots of shades of orange coming up for those shooting stars... and then the upper area is filled in with black. Funny though - as I was stitching, I thought that was a cat sitting on the moon. When I was done, I took a better look and realized it was an owl :-) Makes more sense. But the collar on the owl threw me - but I love him - it's my favorite motif on the whole sampler.

Stitched on today: Stitched on CE exchange, finished SBEBB ABC Exchange, and stitched on Houses of Hawk Run Hollow

It looks wonderful! An owl does make a bit sense than a cat, but either way. If they were being true to form in the motif it would be an astronaut :)

Carol, that sure looks great. Could it be you have a pre-disposition to cats perhaps!! The owl looks really cute

Cute owl! I like the ducks (?) in the square above

An owl on the moon... yeah, that makes perfect sense :o))))
This new start on HoHRH looks distinctly halloweeny, by the way. Love it!

Great start on House 9! I picked up my HOHRH last night too. I can't remember the last time I stitched on this lovely piece.

Finally got a chance to stop by your blog, and it looks like you've been busy!! You're making great progress on your projects. I especially like the acorn piece, and the Quakers, and the fobs, and, and, and....

Your blog should come with an "enabling ahead" warning. LOL
