Early ISHW Report

It's ISHW again! How can that be? Time sure has flown.
I've been working on my Little House Neighbourhood as I mentioned in my last post. Been almost a year since I worked on this. Can you tell I'm trying really hard to reduce my WiP list before the year is up? 
Well, I managed to complete the third row.
Now that the forth and final house has been built, it's now time for the borders and words at the bottom.
You might have noticed there are some missing elements still. Not to worry, I've not forgotten about them. I have plans for those which will be revealed soon.
I also have another happy dance. My iStitch Mystery SAL is done!
Design: Sew A Mystery
Designer: iStitch Designs
Fabric: Hand Dyed Fibers 32 count Jackalope linen
Fibers: Hand Dyed Fibers (Examplar Black Iris) silk
Yup, this SAL now has a name... A very fitting one in my opinion. For those of you who missed out and would like to stitch it, Carol now has it on sale here.
Recently, I won another giveaway. This is what I received.
A scissors fob that Melinda made. Ain't that black cat the cutest charm you've ever seen? Don't let the photo fool you. Oh how its eyes sparkle in real life. I love it! Thanx, Melinda.
Happy Stitching!
