With no SAL commitments tonight, I was happy to be able to pull out Houses of Hawk Run Hollow and to put some progress in on the second house block (actually called House 8). Now all I have left to do for this house block is to finish the copper colored block outline. Then I get to decide which house is next :-) No idea which one I will pick yet. This is such a pretty piece, pretty much a legacy sampler in my view. I started it in January 2005, and I can't help but wonder what date will actually get stitched onto it in the end :-)
Well.... so far this winter I have gotten a taste of what it must be like to live in other parts of this country or of the world in January. Very nice! I'll take it! Now, it might end... it is all a matter of time, I suppose. But these above normal temperatures and below normal snowfall amounts are very pleasing to me!! Of course, this does not come close to what those of you in tropical climates see. And even my friends in the southern parts of the States may consider my temps to be cold... but that just shows how brutal Januarys tend to be in New England. I am sure my other NE stitching pals will agree with that!!
****Happy Birthday to my SIL, Renee :-)
