Chessie's Houses



Since I can't show the stitching I have been doing on exchanges here is my progress on something I am working on for myself. Not very exciting so far is it?

Several years ago I fell in love with a series of designs from Chessie & Me called Chessie's House #1 - #6. They are cute little houses with cats or cat charms. I had a cat named Chessie for many years and I like little houses and have always wanted to stitch some.

I got the charts and put them in my "to stitch soon" folder and there they sat for several years. I kept intending to start them but never seemed to find the time. Finally when Becky re-opened Friends Gather I decided to ask if anyone was interested in a general house themed SAL to motivate myself to stitch them.

Ever since then I have made every attempt to work on this project and life just keeps me from doing so one way or another. I finally sat down to stitch this weekend and found that I can't go any further on that house without ordering some Weeks floss. I was even out of the DMC colors needed for the grass. This is hard to believe when you see how much floss I have in my stash. Oh well I guess I will "have" to do some shopping now. And we all hate to shop for stash right? LOL!
