Hearts and Tangles

The third part of HRW is done and I have the fcatch up on the other stitchalongs. I still really love the colors I chose on this.ourth part to stitch, but I'm waiting as usual until I am done with another part of the other stitchalongs before getting back to this.

Pink Squares

This is coming along, if a bit slowly. I could not work on it on the plane - a product of the seat change Continental pulled on me when I checked in. I loathe middle seats on planes. Anyway, all you see here was done before I got on the plane anyway. All the pink squares are done and I'm beginning to fill them in.

Ups and Downs

Doing the stitches on the second band is like walking up and down a rolling hill over and over again. That said, I'm making some significant progress on it. The first rectangle is all downs, this top stripe to the left, and then the next to the right. The color I got to use on it this week is a really shocking lime green that didn't photograph well.

A Curve of Acanthus

I worked more on the lower left line again this week and a bit on the inside of the bottom egg with a bunch of dark green. Soon I'll be able to start the fourth line, or rather, finish the upper right one.

Beginning to Emerge

There's a lot more progress on the critter this week. You can see his head beginning to emerge from the red.

A Few More Doors

This week was not only backstitching, but specialty stitches. I added the Rhodes stitches to the center building, satin stitches to the left garage, and window curtains in some of the others. It's coming alive.

Three Shades

I worked on three shades of brown this week, including bringing down the outer edge of ribbon on the right. I think I made pretty significant progress.
