more houses

I started back last night with House #8 on HoHRH. I like this block because it's different from the others. :-) I'm fairly confident that I will complete it by the end of the month. I LOVE being on track. Especially now that I'm two HRH behind again. I'm hoping to start Shores in January. I do want to change the memorial blocks totally however. I don't care for it.

Here is my start on the Great Pumpkin Conspiracy. Those Silk N'Colors are very nice to work with and I'm going to enjoy this piece a ton. I wish now I had gone with a shaded black for the crows to give them a bit more interest. I think I'll change up the pumpkins a bit to a variegated floss. But that probably depends on where I'll be when I start working on them. If I'm on the train I might just use what's in my bag but if I'm at home.... who knows how creative I'll be. :-)

You stitch just too darn fast! Great progress though! As Margaret said, I'm looking forward to seeing more of the Pumpkin Conspiracy!

Great start on Pumpkins - that's a fun piece. And great progress on Houses! That is one of my favorite blocks too!

I like the look of the cheeky crow! They are certainly black! House #8 is coming along nicely.
I thought of you yesterday. Remember when you didn't have a needle on your train ride? I was in my car, waiting for an kid with an activity... picked up my needle to thread it, and dropped it between the driver's seat and console. Of course I couldn't find it. Of course it was my last needle in the bag... a whole hour I could have been stitching!
