House #4 finis! A third of the way complete!

I finished up House #4 from Houses of Hawk Run Hollow on Saturday. I did change the inside window color by one shade darker. The recommended color was way to close to the window sash color and it didn't even show a difference with the two dye lots I had. I pulled the silk for house #5 and I hope to start it tonight. It would be nice if I could get a head start on June's house - the nighttime house. That's going to take forever. :-) So the plan is to finish #5 as soon as I can and make a start on #6 before June even starts.

I sure do still have a lot of linen left! :-)

Rather than working on my Loose Feather piece over the weekend I really wanted to start Mrs. Pearson. Right now she looks like something out of a Tim Burton movie! I don't have the primary blue silk - I don't know how I didn't notice that when I ordered the silks but I'll put a call into Drema first thing tomorrow. And I can work around it's absence just fine in the meantime by working up the piece.

HoHRH looks great. I wish I had changed the window color on my block 4.

Good idea on the June block. I haven't decided how I'm going to find time to stitch all that black. I may make it my July travel project and work on it 4 nights a week while my son fences.

The Houses looks great! I agree with your color change - yours is better suited.

Tim Burto!!! That is hysterical ~ you are funny, and you're right, but only for now. It'll change. :p

You're right about Mrs. Pearson - she does look a little scary. But I'm sure she'll look prettier soon. Congrats on your fourth HoHRH block. I like the change you did for the windows.
