getting there

I'm almost finished with Block #1! Yeah! I just have to finish the white blocks in the main section of the house. Of course I know that is at least two evenings of stitching and tonight is agility so no stitching at all at home. So maybe by Friday evening I'll be done. Then I can start working on Beatrix Potter. I think that is how I want to handle that piece. I'll work on it when I've complete my monthly house. And it's a much smaller piece so I should be done with that by spring. :-) (crossing my fingers)

For the train rides this week, I'm working on block 15 of the Book of Ink Circles. I should have this done by tomorrow's ride home. And then I'll work on Cirque des Cercles until the new Loose Feather comes out or I finish it or I get sick and tired of it. :-) It's really my preference to work on Quaker Turtles but I just can't see over one well enough on the train. I think that is why I ended putting it aside when I first started working on it. It was going to be my train project and there is just not enough light there to see properly. So it will have to be fit in somewhere else. Even if I just worked on it a couple of hours on the weekend, it will be done before I know it.

My cousin's house is unbelievably dark but I see to stitch by using cheaters. Of course, I have normal vision otherwise. YMMV. Love your house!

Your house is coming along great! Those HRH blocks are deceptive, there is SO much stitching in them! But they are sooo pretty. I love your Book piece, too--love the close up of it. Gorgeous!
