Houses of Hawk Run Hollow, House 3

I worked on Houses of Hawk Run Hollow tonight, for the first time in quite a while.... I started House 3, which is actually my fourth house. I didn't finish the border or the verse, but somehow did manage to finish the smoke that comes out of the chimneys that I have not yet stitched. Does that make sense? It's an odd start, but I really just wanted to make sure my block lined up correctly with the other two alongside of it... yep, it does.


Q. When you get a project professionally framed do you get glass inserted
into the frame? Why or why not?


A. Yes, I usually do use glass when I take my projects to the framer. I am very paranoid about a piece getting dirty after it is framed. I prefer the non-glare glass. My husband is a smoker and I have six long haired cats. I don't want smoke or cat hair all over my finished projects. Not to mention dust....

I got in a DVD from ebay today at a bargain basement price.... one of Meg Ryan's less popular but very intriguing comedies, Addicted to Love :-)

Stitched on today: Houses of Hawk Run Hollow

I love the little houses in this one ... but I still find the wording a little creepy!

This looks lovely Carol! I really must get this one eventually, when I've stitched the Village - I love the verse on it and I love the VC conversion you're using :)

Carol, great start with your fourth house. I'm working on my HOHRH a bit every week and at the end of the month I'll post my progress.

HOHRH looks great. Once I get going on mine (who knows when that will be though) we'll have to compare the look of the VC silks versus the NPI silks.

I haven't seen this project in awhile ... lovely smoke!

Great start on your 4th house. I love that you did the smoke without the chimneys!

Wonderful start on your next house. This is such a pretty piece!

Does the non-glare glass or regular glass make much of a difference?

I didn't start out adding the glass; however, like you, with pets, glass is the only way to go.

I had heard using glass makes the project fade over time -- but, I don't know if that is fact or opinion. I have not noticed any fading on my pieces (yet)
