Village of Hawk Run Hollow


I was going to wait until I'd completed the first block before posting a photo, but it's been too long since I last blogged! Where does the time go?!

I've really been enjoying stitching this. I'm using the 40-Count fabric (and the NPI), and I'm so glad that I went with that. I haven't really stitched many projects on 40-Count so far (that will definitely be changing), so I was a bit nervous about doing such a big project on it... but I'm really glad I did now. I'm very happy with the coverage and I'm having no problems at all.

I'm thinking of maybe trying to complete one block of these per month. I'd be no good doing this as a focus piece (or stitching on it until it's done), as I know I would get fed up too quickly, then it'll just lie as a UFO... I think one block per month sounds a lot more sensible.

Work was very busy last week. I have 3 days off this week (woo!), another 2 days off next week, but then that's it... I'll only get one more day off (if I'm lucky), until September 5th. Sighs. Ach well... I expect after September I'll get a lot more free time with the holiday season coming to an end.

The weather has cooled down over the past couple of days too, which I'm grateful for, TBH. I love the warm weather when I can relax (e.g. on holiday or with days off), but working in it is awful when it's as warm as it has been. Though typical that it gets cooler when I get some days off!!

Concetta, its looking good, so many fellow stitchers are stitching this piece .. I will watch your progress.. 40 ct seems to be the fab of choice too..thanks for the post on my blog, the picture will be probably all I get.

Beautiful start! Those big projects do seem pretty daunting, but I think your monthly goal is do-able. Can't wait to see more!

Looking wonderful Tina! The 40 ct is so neat-though I don't think I could do it.
