back to Hocuspocusville

I couldn't tell you how long it's been since I did any stitching on Hocuspocusville, not without looking it up.  I stopped working on it because I hadn't traced another house yet and didn't want to finish this one before I had a new one to start. 

Is that the absolute dumbest excuse for procrastination ever?

I didn't realize how silly I was being until after I'd traced the third house. This one is the broom sales-witch's lot and has a lot less detail than the house I've been stitching. Lots of long, gently curved lines, perfect for late nights when I want to work on something but not concentrate on tiny details. 

I've decided that I should have two houses going at once, one with challenging bits and one with relaxing bits. And if I finish 'em both before tracing the next house, that's fine too.

Smart plan. I procrastinate for silly reasons like that, too. All too frequently, I'm afraid. *sigh* You haven't, by chance, gotten a package in the mail from me yet, have you? Just checking! :)

That is just the cutest pattern! I have four stitcheries going on right now, all different, I just do whichever one I feel like doing at the moment. *G*

It sounds perfectly logical to me! I tend to have different quilting projects so that I can pick the one I am in the mood for.

I do that all the time with stitchery. If it is too detailed, I have to be in a certain frame of mind to concentrate, and need to do either an easier stitchery or another handwork project. These are such fun glad you are working on another one!
