I noticed a few days ago that I have been blogging daily for one full year now, as of today. Time sure does fly! Before I know it, it will be two years!
Back to Houses of Hawk Run Hollow again today. I miss stitching the other pieces in my rotation, and I hope I will get a chance to do so soon. As much as I love this sampler, I am a rotation stitcher at heart and am itching to switch again. I spent a good portion of today's stitching time trying to untie quite a knot in my skein of Platinum VC silk. I lifted it out of its Floss A Way bag when I went to start stitching this afternoon, and somehow it was knotted up. I don't know how. It looked just fine when I put it in the Floss A Way bag last night... Anyhow.... I sure didn't want to waste any of this silk, because the VC silks skeins are really very small. They are only six strands of silk, and are "approximately" five yards in length. I am already concerned that I may not have enough of some colors to finish this project... same with Garden Spot Sampler, as Jo has also noticed... Houses of Hawk Run Hollow sure is not a quick stitch! I put quite a bit of time into it tonight and only finished the platinum that finishes the front of the house, and a little more of the lace agate on the side of the house.... And, believe it or not, I saw someone on one of the BBs actually has stitched this big honker of a sampler twice already! LOL
The Patriots showed signs of their old championship form today - it helps to have injured players start to come back healthy - as they beat the Buffalo Bills, 35-7....
