36 Inches

of embroidery later, panel one of Over The River is complete!

See? Tape measure and everything to prove it.

And a better shot of the panel.

Never mind that it was nearly 90 degrees in Houston today. It still looks a bit messy because the basting lines still need to be pulled out and I need to go over it with a damp towel to remove any stray red chalk tracings before I iron it. Heat will set the chalk and we don’t want that.

Today I also worked on my Mirabilia Round Robin.

Creative = messy in Missy world. I accomplished two things today, one my idea will work (at least I’m 90% sure) and I figured out my block size; which will be 30w x 80h. Make that 3, I picked out the border for each block. More on that later, once I’m sure it’ll work.

I’m torn on what to work on next. I’m going to spend some time on the baby quilt tomorrow, I’m sewing the rows together now. And I’ll finish 1 part of my Just Nan exchange. But as for stitching I’m thinking…

1. Wedding Row, not started but the wedding is the first week of September.

2. Winter Rose from L&L, Christmas gift that I’m itching to start.

3. Salem Sisters, singing to me from the closet. Likely because it won’t take tons of time to finish them. And I hate to ignore projects when they sing.

4. HoHRH, yes May is complete but June is the midnight block. That entire block is completely filled with stitching and is going to take a lot of hours.

5. Mirabilia RR, due for mailing June 15th.

Hmmm what to do, what to do?

Oh and I’m totally counting that OTR panel as a finish in the challenge. 36 inches of hand embroidery?! Damn right it counts.

    That is beautiful, Missy! Congratulations on your progress!

    I vote to work on HoHRH; tedious, I know, but you’ve got to get to it sooner or later, right?

    Good luck with deciding what you want to work on!

  2. WOOOOHOOO!!!! OTR!!!!!! Pics just for me, right? LOL I don”t have to tell you how much I love it. As for what to work on next, my vote is the Mira RR. Then, HoHRH. After that is too far in the future to think about because I have Stitcher’s ADD.

    Oh my goodness Over the River is beautiful Missy. I love it. Ok, yes I know you didn’t ask me, but I gotta vote for HoHRH (then the Mira RR). Love Houses and watching your progress on it. Can’t wait to see pics of the baby quilt, too.

    Over the River is GORGEOUS! CONGRATS on the finish!

    OTR is looking good!

    I love seeing that pile of Mirabilia charts. I forget how much I love her designs until I go stash diving and start pulling out her charts and realize how many of them I want to stitch.

    That panel definitely has to count! It’s beautiful!!! Such a dilemna on the stitching front and what to work on next. I say go for the one that’s due June 15th. Good luck!

    Over the River is gorgeous!! Big congrats on the finish!

    Beautiful. Congrats with this stunning finish. Love it.
    Hmmmm…with what to start. Duty or fun???? Duty wise I would say do the Mirabilia RR first. Which probably is fun to do anyway. Then you’ll have that out of the way in time.
    Other then that…Winter Rose. I LOVE that design.

  9. OTR looks great! Damn straight it counts as a finish. I’m planning to count LHN’s Sea to Shining Sea as multiple finishes, too. There are a total of six threadpacks in that full design, so I was planning to count each threadpack completion as a finish. I’m also planning to do the same with my Lizzie Kate Boo Club. There are six leaflets each with 2 designs, so I’m planning to count each leaflet completion as a finish.

    Of course 36 inches of embroidery counts! Kudos to you for accomplishing so much! 🙂 Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for the RR.
