Back to the Hollow

House #2 is moving along much faster than #1 (knock wood).

Everything but the house itself is complete and I’ve made a start on the door & roof. I’m stitching this with the DMC conversion and for the door it gave 3051 which is most definitely not mouse gray, so I changed it to 646.

In other stitching news I sent out my mail art, hopefully by this weekend it’ll arrive and I’ll show the pictures. While it didn’t turn out exactly how I invisioned it, I am very happy with it. I also treated myself to Chatelaine’s Mystery #12 The Caribbean (warning! link goes to the sneak peek picture). I’m waiting on European XS to invoice me and I’m also waiting on 3 different 9 x 12″ cuts I’ve ordered from various fabric dyers to see what I like for this. I’ll post pics and floss tosses when I’ve got everything in hand.

For Valentine’s Day I gave the dh some Sxul Chocolate.

Dark chocolate flavored vodak and some eatin’ chocolate too. And yes, the vodka is chocolate colored.

Why Sxul Chocolate? Coming To America anyone?

And since the camera was out…

Why is it that this one cat *always* has to be in every single box?

And then there’s Tycho who is that kid that pulls the funny face in every single class picture.

P.S. Due to the massive (I’m talking 100+ daily) spam comments that I’ve been dealing with I’ve added a challenge question to the comments section.

    I don’t know Missy – you just asked me to add, in my head! Maybe I’m just not up for a challenge! LOL Actually I prefer that to entering those stupid delibrately weirdly fonted letters.

    You know, I must lead an incredibly sheltered life – I didn’t know you could get chocolate flavored alcohol (well except for in truffle form, and I’m not sure that counts).

  3. Chocolate vodka!! I want some! Your latest house is coming along beautifully. And, I haven’t forgotten your Eterna conversion. It’s coming, I promise!!

    That vodka sounds great! We have some of the black vodka, which is always fun at Halloween. Grat progress on your HRH! Oooh, I can’t wait to see what fabric you choose for Caribbean.

  5. Christine S says:

    Oh, that vodka sounds divine!! I might have to keep an eye out for that. Your kitties are very cute!

    Thanks for the link to the Chatelaine design. I’ll definitely keep an eye out for WIP pictures because it looks like a piece that would appeal to me (not many of her others have).

    Holy smokes, Missy…you stitched that fast! Looks fab!

    Ooo, vodka and chocolate, yummy!

    Sorry about all the spam. Some people lead sad lives.

    Great progress on your second square, Missy!

    I don’t drink Vodka, but it sure does sound intriguing!

    Sexual Chocolate. LOL We love that cheesy movie. There was a guy on the AI tryouts this season who had that tattooed on his arm and used that for his stage name. Will and I were dying laughing.

  9. The kitty is just like my kidlets with boxes. Or pots. Or laundry baskets!
