Stitching update

I am slowly stitching along on the Hocuspocusville Quilt block there is so much to stitch it seems to be taking me forever. I have just started the door on the bottom of the house and only have this little corner to finish and the house will be completely stitched, then I need to tackle the tree and the long sign.

I completed the hand embroidered goddess Morrigan for the 13 Goddess Challenge last night  it was a bit of a hit and miss in my eyes.
The Morrigan is often depicted shape-shifting into a raven/crow, or else wearing attire crafted from raven feathers. The MorrĂ­gan is a goddess of battle, strife, and sovereignty from the Irish mythology. She sometimes appears in the form of a crow, flying above the warriors Taking the form of the death raven announcing death, or the banshee predicting it with shrieks.

She is the 5th Goddess I have made using hand embroidery, the challenge is actually on week 9 this week so I am now 4 goddess behind, they are waiting in different stages either sketched, waiting to be traced onto fabric.  I don't always follow the suggested subjects: 
Week #1: RUSSIAN
Week #2: CELTIC or NORDIC
Week #3: JAPANESE
Week #4: SEMITIC
Week #5: NATIVE AMERICAN
Week #6: EGYPTIAN
Week #7: HINDUIST
Week #8: ROMAN or GREEK
Week #9: SOUTH AMERICAN
Week #10: SUMERIAN/ BABYLONIAN
Week #11: AFRICAN
Week #12: AUSTRALIAN or POLYNESIAN

Week #13: CHINESE

I tend to go where my creativity takes me, when I did do a goddess from the subject list she was usually out of order,  This week I will be working on some of the 4 goddesses waiting for stitching.
I will be linking my stitcheries here:
