I decided to follow my rotation schedule and work on Houses of Hawk Run Hollow tonight. I am beginning to like House 4 a bit better now that the actual house is starting to grow. I have looked at this block done in NPI silks as well as Soie d'Alger, and see that it is a bunch of strange colors no matter what fibers are used :-) Anyhow... here is my question, how did Becky and Karen get their first house blocks stitched up so quickly? Mine feel like they are going soooo slowly.....
And, now I have another sampler that I have the strongest urge to stitch! I just recieved the Spring 2004 issue of Fine Lines from ebay today.... I adore this "Women of the Mayflower" sampler by the late Sarah Ullman of Olde Willow Designs. Maybe it is my New England roots that draw me to this, but I think it is the composition and the colors as well. Does anyone else have any plans to stitch this sampler?
OK, I am ready - the big weather warm up is due to hit us right.... now! Whew! And I have tomorrow off - I have an appointment to have the remote starter put in my Jeep in the early afternoon, and other than that, I am on my weekend now!!
There is sad news, though. Mike's friend that he went to see last weekend in NY passed away last night. Mike went to see him when he learned he was on hospice with 6-12 months predicted. Less than two weeks later, and it was all over. Very sad. This man was very dear to my husband.
