Fair and Square, Round One Finished

I am relieved to have heard earlier today that my Fair and Square blocks for Margaret Wong have arrived safely in Kuala Lumpur! Here they are - sorry the photo is a little out of focus, I tried to take it at dusk. I look forward to Round Two starting later this month.

I have been sticking with Houses of Hawk Run Hollow on Mondays. I don't have much time on Monday evenings to stitch, but still, slow and steady progress is surely going to get me there - so, here is where it got me tonight!

And... a couple of daylilies too :-)

I received Cathy's Neighborhood Round Robin today for Group 3 - it is gorgeous!!

Stitched on today: Stitched a gift, and Houses of Hawk Run Hollow **I also posted my Freebie Exchange off today, as it has a bit of a long way to travel now

I've never heard of this fair and square - what is it?

HOHRH is definitely growing. It might be slow but at least it's not a UFO. Have you got any UFO's?

There's nothing wrong with slow and steady! You're making great progress with this one and your F&S exchange is very sweet :)

Hi Carol! Oh your HOHRH is looking just so beautiful!! I also love your F&S exchange project! Very pretty!! You must have the prettiest flower garden! I really thank you for your input about using DMC threads for the project I am wanting to get! It means so much to me because it comes from you and others who are just the best stitchers ever!! I feel much better about doing this now when I wasn't sure at first! Debby :)

HOHRH is really coming along! Every little bit puts you further on it (as I am trying to remember with my own pieces!) Love the Fair and Square blocks - that is a great choice.

Slow and steady progress on HOHRH, I'm enjoying seeing the piece grow.

Keep up the good work on your houses. They are looking great. I agree there is nothing wrong with slow and steady. That is the only way I get anything done these days:)
