Houses for July is done!
A fun block except for a freakin’ dye shift in my Ecru (dmc) thread. I had to pull out and re-stitch the two smallest hills. I also made mistakes in 2 out of 3 of the flowered hills, but seriously no one will ever notice. This was a very fast block, it took me what 3 days to stitch? Really good time for a HoHRH block.
Past the half way point, it’s all down hill from here right?
In other stitching news after some thinking – realistic thinking. (a true rarity around here) I simply have to put everything else on the back burner if I’m going to get OTR done by September (or at the worst during September). I’ve decided that I’m going to spend at least 1 hour per day on cutting/piecing and dedicate as much of my regular stitching time to the embroidery panels as I can stomach. I will keep up with HoHRH and occasionally another project I’m sure will pop up just to keep my sanity. But I’m going to be making a dedicated effect towards the completion of OTR.
Slowly, I still am recovering. I’m hoping that by next week I will be able to go back to Curves/gym and begin getting my cardio back. And 10lbs off. My husband is also convinced that a brown recluse spider has bitten me and that the flesh shall begin falling from my head shortly. It only bugs me if I poke at it, and following the soundest medical advice out there – I have quit poking at it.
Re: The Black Dagger Brotherhood, I refuse to make an uniformed decision. I would have to er… sample each brother before I would be able to choose. And then well, being a child of the 80’s and the “Greed Is Good” motto being impressed on my psyche… I’ll be taking at least two of ’em for my own. 😉
