First things first, it is Friday - and Friday is Houses of Hawk Run Hollow day. I finished the windows - even filled them in... but that is it. I totally agree with Becky that these blocks each take quite some time to stitch! I was hoping to get considerably more done tonight, but just couldn't. If you are a fan of HOHRH, you won't want to miss this very humorous blog, if you have not been enjoying it already :-) Too funny to miss!
Since I realized that this is not a good time at all to start a new project, what with my already very long list of WIPS (and with the exception of a short term SAL starting next month, of course), I decided to revive an old UFO. I have been wanting to revive this one for ages, and today was the day. This is Mermaid and the Sea by Examplers From the Heart. I started this three or four years ago. I am using Seamist 40 ct Graziano linen by The Blended Needle (now Heaven Lee Creations). The project is stitched with Weeks Dye Works floss - I love this project! I know I put it aside in the early days because it was my first large project on 40 ct and I think it overwhelmed me a bit. But 40 ct does not overwhelm me any longer - it is now my favorite linen count (I think you figured that out already) - so I am back to working on this one now too! I only gave it about 40 minutes today because it was HOHRH day - I finished the crew on the ship and the little gulls above their heads.
