Hocuspocusville

Is anyone else out there doing the Hocuspocusville quilt? I know Vickie and Robin are, and actually after I saw Vickie working on her embroidery blocks back in May I decided that I had to do that quilt. It is of course another Crabapple Hill pattern and I'm obsessed with their stuff so I the minute my pattern and fabric arrived on Wednesday I immediately traced it. I wasn't going to start working on it right away because I'm already doing their Berry Pickin project but I said to myself on Thursday while I was waiting for family to arrive "just a few stitches to see how it looks".....well, a few turned into a LOT of stitches that night. I couldn't help myself, once I picked up the needle and floss and started I kept at it until I couldn't keep my eyes open anymore. Since I'm not involved in anything major right now at the machine I decided to make up the 9 patch blocks that make up the center of the quilt. The shop I'm doing this with supplied the fabric for everything plus black floss and they even sent along a brown pigma pen to trace it all.
I am taking this project to work with me and only working on it at lunch and break time so I can focus on my other project at home.

Wow, that is quite a quilt -- lots and lots of hand stitching. Can't wait to see it finished!

Glad you are doing the BOM. I am still on block one. Maybe you will inspire me to get moving. LOL

Vickie said...

Well, sorry about the double entry. I am such a goof. It took me forever to get the password stuff in and when I finally did it, I made a double post. ROFLOL

Peggy, I too purchased the pattern several months ago. Unfortunately, it took the back burner to other "stuff". I am curious, however, what stitch did you decide to use on your embroidery...stem? backstitch? Maybe in Jan. I can begin mine!

What a fantastic project. Once upon a time I used to do stitcheries but no longer. Everytime I see a great project it moves me closer to starting again.

That is one fantastic-looking project. Can't wait to see it as you go along.
