A New Start - and it's a big one!


Well... here I go! I started something - finally - and it is a big something! Karen gifted me with this chart, and then talked me into starting it with her... Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow... it's been so long since I started something big.... gulp! This is Monday's and tonight's progress so far...

I did do a little more on Gingerbread Garden Sampler - will do a little more, and then show it!




Currently Stitching: Stitching an ornament for the Christmas Ornament Swap, started Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow

What a great start, I am sure you'll love it Carol. Since you started so early in the year, maybe you'll have it done before Christmas.

Congrats on the new start Carol! I haven't purchased any of the Hawk Run charts...but I do think I'm going to get this one!!!

Susan said...

How wonderful! I started C at HRH also. I started at the bottom so I have #12 done and the background on #11 to do. I will probably stitch on #10 as I fill in the bkgrd. Great Start!

Looking great, Carol!

Deb said...

Great Start!!! But don't think of it as a large project. Think of each block as a finish! It should go easier that way.

Carol R said...

Lovely start Carol - can't wait to see more!

A beautiful start!! Congrats!!

Pam said...

I recently bought this chart and love it. I need to finish some other things first though before I start it... Look forward to seeing your progress! Yay!

Margo's Musings said...

Great start! I'm glad to see you stitching a large project, because I love to follow your progress!

Happy stitching! Margaret

Susan said...

You're off to a good start, Carol. I have this in my stash, and the only reason I haven't started it is that I promised myself I would wait until I finished Shores. Every time I see someone's progress picture, I want to start mine!

Brigitte said...

This will be a fun project, you will see. Each blog is a finish and you will love it.

Valentina said...

Great start Carol, I love it!

Look forward to watching your progress on this one - shame Karen doesn't blog anymore so we can't watch hers grow too :( Of course if most people are to go by, you do know that you'll then have to stitch all the others in the series too? LOL

Lynn said...

Congrats on your new start Carol! Fantastic choice too! Several of the ladies in my stitching group are doing this together and really enjoying it. Now I wish I'd started along with them.

Valerie said...

Wow, what a great start! The HRH samplers are all just gorgeous! Looking forward to seeing more progress pics!
