So close...

And yet so far.  In the perfect parallel universe this haunted house is done and hanging on the wall.  Since I’m stuck in this universe it’s just going to haunt me until I get it done.  Too bad I’ve been distracted by all my pretty Christmas patterns. J

Speaking of Christmas, I’m off to work on my Santa for my first exchange.

Answering the call

After making some progress on the Retro Cat and Haunted House last weekend I got back to the other member of the trio, Be Hippie.  While still plotting (or trying to decide?) on various color changes I did more stitching on the sun and put on one sleeve.  I would have put on the last word too, but its two different colors and I was too lazy to get up and hunt for the other one.  Maybe next time. J

Kate at Momuboocrea Island is hosting her first exchange and I’m excited to take part.  The theme is Santa Claus and if you’re interested in taking part check out Kate’s blog here

In the meantime, have a great week.
Happy stitching World.

IHSW wrap up

I worked on the Retro Cat and have some progress to show.  Ta Da!!  The wall is finished on the left side down to the chair at least.  Then I decided to start on the blue for the window and put off the chair for awhile longer.  Next time I pick it up it will be more blue or maybe the black line across the top.  We’ll see.

That’s all for now.  I look forward to checking everyone’s progress.  Hope you all had a good weekend as well as the week ahead.
Happy stitching World.

IHSW - time for some progess.

It’s off to a good start.  I finished the porch roof on the Haunted House, so now it’s on to the second floor.  Such excitement.

For the weekend though it’s back to the Retro Cat.  It seems to be easier to ignore – maybe I shouldn’t keep it in that box? J  This is the weekend for progress!!
I’ll be back Sunday night with an update.  Have a great weekend.
Happy stitching World.

Ah Life.

That is the biggest distraction to stitching isn’t it?  Well that and wanting to start new projects.  J
While I did start another one of Dork Stitches’ Sailor Scout sprites this week (6 done, 5 to go) link here , I made progress on the Haunted House too.  I should have this done by Halloween, stitching wise at least.

It’s snowing here.  I know its October but I was hoping for cooler not cold.  First snow of the season so I guess I’ll go run my errands and enjoy being out in it.  And then get home and enjoy being out of it.
Happy stitching World.

Happy October

I’m going to try to keep this brief so maybe I can still get to the one thing that hasn’t been worked on this week – the Retro Cat.  Not a stitch was made by me.  Or the Fairies, Elves or Brownies, they must have been busy too.
A little progress on other things to sort of make up for it.
More words on Be Hippie:

And more purple on the Haunted House:

That’s really about all for this weekend.  Have a fabulous week ahead and keep smiling!  It’s as easy to do as anything.  And it does make people wonder. J
Happy stitching World!
