Winchestor House, Historical Fashions and a House

You know, I should get some snappier titles for my blog posts. I just realiezed all I use are my stitching projects! I have been very busy trying to stitch on Winchestor House and Fashions. I had tried to finish Winchestor House before the end of February...but I got tired of stitching all that green! So my goal didn't happen.
I also worked on fashions and my couple is half way finished. The guys mustache looks so funny. I love the colors of the womans dress.

I also finished Kim's Round Robin piece. I stitched a house quilt block for her. It turned out so cute!!! Kim plans on making a wall hanging from her quilt blocks.
I want to say thank you to everyone who offered to stitch on my RR!!! My cyber-stitching friends are so wonderful!! I will probably take you up on the offer. Another group I am in is doing a RR so I am going to be using this piece for that RR. As soon as it comes home again then I hope to send it to those who volunteered to work on it if they still want to stitch on it.
I am also getting ready to start two new HUGE projects...they are in the works of my little mind....so I will be posting more information on it later. Tomorrow I will post all of my february reads...I didn't read as much this month but I mangaged to get in a few books.

Love Winchester House! Makes me want to start mine. I might have to thank Evalina for starting me on a new addiction,I loved looking at the house charts and I couldn't resist Winchester..It looks great.
Thanks for sharing.
I'd also be willing to stitch one of your RR squares if you need-maegwin4athotmaildotcom.
Have a great day.

Winchester house looks great, that's one place I'd like to visit in person!

wonderful progress pictures. Hope you don't fall asleep at school, that won't be good. LOL! Good luck getting your bookshelf painted.

Love your progress pictures - know what you mean, I abandoned my Oxford (temporarily!) as I was just so fed up with all the greens!

Oh my, I didn't know Winchester House was in a cross stitch design....you have got to give us the details on this one so I can find the chart! We used to live very near there and still have masses of family in the area. DH and I still (after 30 years) will say "let's visit the Winchester" when what we really mean is let's take a vacation and go home and see the family.

I don't have time right this minute to read further but I'll be back soon. But I wanted to pop over and WELCOME you to the Totally Useless SAL. I would like to ask you to go back to my blog and put your "let me join" comment on the 2010 Sign Up Page, please. Last year my computer crashed and the only place I had a complete list was on the blog so I'm really trying to get absolutely everybody signed in on one page -- just in case. Also when you do that, please include your general geographic location so I can add you to the map that will be published soon. If you live in a very small town just give the 'big' city nearest you.

Lovely blog and some beautiful stitching, so I'll be dropping in again!!

Hugs
Yoyo
