Stitching Photos

I have some stitching photos to share this month, as promised (though I'm cutting it a bit fine as usual!)

With the little stitching time I've had, I think I spent most of June and July finishing off block 3 of the Village of Hawk Run Hollow! I completed #3 almost one year to the day I started the project. Hmmmm. So if I keep going at this rate, I'll be finished VoHRH in July 2010! Yikes. I hope it won't take that long. :-D Mind you, if it does, I'm not bothered. I still enjoy working on this, but I know that it's a project I'd easily burn out on if I worked on it more than I do. This works for me, and I'm not in any rush to finish it.


I was all set to do the Scottish flag, until I realised when I was trying to chart it that it wasn't the easiest flag to do - would have taken lots of fractional stitches, and I just didn't have the heart for it (I left the flag to the end, so I was getting a bit fed up and really wanted to finally finish the block off). SO second choice was the Italian flag, which was easy peasy!

I've also been working on Quaker Sampling I (With My Needle). My last progress photo (I really need to take another).


And finally a wee finish!


Geranium House (by Country Cottage Needleworks). I decided to start this one when my mum was getting concerned that some geraniums she'd ordered for her garden hadn't been delivered - she waited weeks and weeks for them. The geranium's did get delivered in the end and all was well. :)


I hope everyone is having a good summer!

Lots of lovely pictures. Your Houses piece is so pretty, and I totally agree with your approach to working on it when it calls to you but taking your time. Stitching should be fun and you'll enjoy it so much more if you're not focused so hard on finishing it on a certain timeframe.

The Quaker piece is beautiful too, and congratulations on finishing Geranium House. I don't have this one in my stash yet, but seeing all the cute finishes of it being posted recently I think I'm going to need to add it.
