House #10 finis

I finished up House #10 last night. :-) I really changed up the house color. It was charted for a dark brown that was almost the same shade as the roof (the same as the chimmy actually). I wanted a bit of contrast so I went through my NPIs but didn't have anything that was just a little lighter. So I just went for it. I love the color on the skein but I'm not sure how it looks on the block. :-) Oh well. I'm certainly not going to do anything about it. Only four houses to go! I'm starting on House #7 tonight.

Clancy and I are leaving shortly for the Fox Valley Dog Club agility trial. What I wouldn't do for a qualify score today or tomorrow. :-)

The change you made works very well, I like the contrast and the color is a good combination with all of the other colors.

have you seen the sneak peak of Christmas at Hawk run hollow on kathy's blog. It's so charming so far. I think I want to stitch that one when it comes out.
