A Great Mail Day
I received some really beautiful mail today! Aniza sent me this really pretty little pinkeep for the SBEBB Quaker Alphabet Exchange. It is stitched over one with a lovely purple floss - and of course, is so beautifully stitched.. and so wee :-) And.. wow, I have admired Aniza's own hand dyed floss via her blog for some time now... and now I have a nice packet of several lovely skeins all for myself! Thank you Aniza - what a lovely exchange, I love it all! And, the mail just kept getting better as I received these fantastic Fair and Square blocks from Wendy. Aren't they wonderful? She stitched Opalescent Heart by The Sweetheart Tree for me! Oh Wendy, I adore them, thank you! I hope you receive yours from me very soon too!
And... I finished House 5 on Houses of Hawk Run Hollow tonight ;-) Then I took the plunge and started the border on House 6, aka the intimidating "leave-no-space-unstitched" block, which also features the one house on the sampler that also calls for overstitching. This one will take a while. I had to chuckle when I saw a comment in my blog earlier today about last night's HOHRH post. Someone wrote that my finish is only a few months away - ha! Naive writer, ha! LOL. I think the finish is still some ways off on this massive endeavor.
Stitched on today: Finished Harvest House Exchange project, and Houses of Hawk Run Hollow
