Can I Just Turn My Whole Life into a Stitching Vacation, Please?

It's amazing how much you can accomplish when you actually have time to stitch. Everyone should take a stitching vacation at least once a year! 
Although I thought I would NEVER finish filling in the water on SoHRH block 6-7. And Laura was working on the water in block 3 at the same time. 
We were ready to pull each other's hair out. 



But we both made it. I finished the block and Laura now gets to fill in the house. Note the personalization she's made by eliminating the tree in front of the house.  And please do not look at my stitching up close and personal at the same time you're looking at Laura's.  She puts me to shame. 

So I moved on to page 3 of Pigalle by Long Dog Samplers.  I am so loving this piece! I'll probably finish it before I go back to SoHRH, but who cares!

  7. All the pieces are lovely but the Pigalle looks spectacular. You have inspired me! I am taking a stitching "stay-cation" next week. Buying the cloth for my new project on Wednesday and not doing a lick of work until Friday morning!
