The construction crew is going gangbusters putting up buildings in my Hometown Holidays village. I think I mentioned before that I am going to sort of personalize several buildings with the names of the owners/stores from the Village of Montfort where I grew up. For instance, not that the building looks anything like the one from our village, but the firehouse chart had a number “22” stitched at the peak of the roof to denote the number of the firehouse. We had (and it still has) a volunteer fire department. So instead of the “22”, I added the letters MVFD for Montfort Volunteer Fire Department.
So the Church and Fire Department are done and I started on the Sweet Shop. Here’s what that will look like.
Friend Judy and some of her other stitchy friends have started In HIS Image earlier this week. I started this chart as my birthday start last July but didn’t get a lot done because I think I was busy with Summer Crossstich Camp stitching.
I picked it up and added just a few stitches on New Year’s Even when I was doing the 12 x 12 thing but only an hour of stitching so not huge progress. Here’s where I left off on NYE.
When I started it, I only pulled the colors as I was using them so this afternoon I’m going to pull all the rest of the colors for the chart so I can stitch along. I think I’ll probably alternate between this one, Hometown Holidays and I want to get back to Three Things so will switch it up between them as I get itchy to work on something different.
