Design Wall Monday

Not much has changed since two Mondays ago.  I have been stitching at least 15 minutes a day mostly on the Hocuspocusville stitchery.  Last week we were lucky enough to have company so that did put a little damper on getting anything done on the sewing machine.  Still only six blocks completed on the D4P.

The fifth block for Hocuspocusville is coming along.

Today is a big day here not only is it the first day of school but my oldest turned 13.  I now have a teenager!  Somehow it seems like the time has gone by so fast, I swear we just brought him home from the hospital. 

Jamie on his first birthday and just a little bit  ago messing with the camera settings.

Happy Birthday Jamie!

I can't wait to see your completed HocusPocusville. I have one of those patterns and I think it's Vintage Halloween. I love how they turn out.

Congrats and welcome to 'parenting teens!' Our youngest just started high school..with an 11 yr gap from the last kid. I feel like we have had a teen in the house FOREVER! Love the stitchery and the blocks. Quilting keeps me SANE (at least SANE is what I CALL It! lol)

love your stitchery and that your keeping at the 15 minutes a day, I need to do that to, but first I have to transfer my pattern...oh boy!

Wow is that a great embroidery. I love the quilt I just made one with the same pattern and love it. Teens are fun to have around but ever so much the challenge to. I agree the whole parenting process is like going through a time warp, how did it get here so fast?!?!
