almost the weekend

These squares for the Etui are going to move along quickly. They are only 110 x 110 (with the bottom being slightly larger). Somehow they looked bigger when I was studying the photos of the finished etui. I picked up the side with the most speciality stitches. I picked the square randomly but it worked out. When I do multi-part pieces I like to go from hard/heavy stitched to easy/lightly stitches. That way if feels like I'm zooming along at the end. :-)
Here is my house #6. It's coming along nicely. I have a super busy weekend coming up. On Saturday and Sunday I have an all day agility seminar with Clancy and Aoife, a party on Saturday night and I have some planting I need to take care of on Sunday. I'd like to finish the inside of the house before all this starts. :-)

Great progress. I love watching HoHRH and seeing how everyone stitches the same thing differently.

Both your pieces are coming along beautifully and also your Marquoir. I love watching the HoHRH progress. I stopped at Block 5 and kick myself everytime I see yours!

Nice progress! Isn't it nice to work on something a bit smaller than Ho once in a while? :D

Wow, that house is zipping right along! And while I probably ought to have posted this on yesterday's comments, while I am not an alphabet girl, I do so love your Grand Marquior.
