My BAP Happy Dance

I finished my BAP Victorian Dollhouse by Joan Elliott. Here is a photo of it completely finished.

I have decided to work on something a little smaller for my next project. I'd like to see another finish before the end of the year. I have started pulling threads (DMC) and fabric (28ct light blue evenweave) for Ink Circles Namaste.

Happy Stitching!

IHSW update

Lots of stitching time this weekend. I finished the Master Bedroom and then worked on the attic bedroom. The floor was already done, I stitched the green walls, some of the bed, and the doorway. Here is a progress photo. I should be able to complete the whole Victorian Dollhouse by the end of October.

If you are interested, here is a photo of the whole dollhouse.

It is finally here, IHSW (International Hermit Stitching Weekend). Here is my before photo. The Master Bedroom is almost finished. A few more items to stitch and back stitch (picture frame and pink chair). I will definitely complete this room by the end of the weekend. Let's see how much I will get done in the attic bed room.

When I see that I'm getting close to a finish (like now), I start deciding what to stitch next. I have 4 projects that I want to do next year.
1 - Garden Chair by Cat's Whiskers. I fell in love with the design because I studied Interior Design and I used to build dollhouses/miniatures as a hobby.

2 - Namaste by Ink Circles. I love the vibrant colours of the rainbow.

3 - I Shall Wear Purple by Sue Hillis. This is for me, my favourite colour is purple.

4 - I Shall Wear Plaid by Stitch World. My husband turns 50 on March 24th, and it is the companion piece to mine.

These are decisions that I like to make, they don't affect anyone else but me. Which one should I start next? I will only stitch one at a time. The exception might be to have a large project at home and a small one to take to the cross stitch club on Tuesday nights.

TUSAL time

My ORT jar is sitting on the unfinished ledge in my basement.

Hallway & Master Bedroom update

I did finish the hallway and about half finished in the Master bedroom. I'd like to finish it this weekend, but don't think I'll have enough time between laundry, ironing, and other chores.

Here is an progress photo.

October Goals

I finished the nursery and the grey foundation. I started the hallway, Master bedroom, and large attic room floors all in September.

I am almost finished the hallway. Hope to complete it today. I'd like to have the Master bedroom done by the end of October.

Here is an updated photo of my Victorian Dollhouse.
