Hi everyone! How are things? A little more stitching done on BOAF’s Happy Hearts Sampler. Soon I’ll be finished with the top row and can get a little bit of an alphabet ‘fix’!!
A couple of people have asked me about this one. I‘ve had this one in my stash for a number of years but, as far as I know, this is one of the BOAF charts that is still available.
Then it’s very definitely a case of call me crazy!!! I have so far resisted the temptation to stitch any of the CHS Hawk Run Hollow designs. Not because I didn't love them but just the size of them was daunting. Well, the autumn one was released earlier this year and it’s been the one to push me over the edge and decide that, as long as I contented myself that it would take me a long time, it was a ‘must stitch’ for me. Natalia over at Stitching-4- Joy is going to be keeping me company and she’s stitching on Shores. We did decide we didn’t want to put ourselves under lots of pressure so we are aiming to stitch a block every two months. Here’s my progress to date, I’ve got to the middle of December to finish this block so, fingers crossed!!!! Given that I’m very much a ‘one project at a time’ stitcher we’ll see how I go at having two larger projects!!! Who knows, it may change my mind completely on rotation! Then again, it may not! I am stitching this with the suggested DMC colours and on 32ct sandstone.
I just had to share a pic of what has arrived at my house. Stitched by a dear stitching friend (no blog) and something that I will treasure. This is one (of many!) BBD that I would see finished on other blogs and loved so you can guess I was just thrilled when I opened the package and discovered these inside.
I’m off to spend a ‘stitchy’ afternoon with a friend. I’m looking forward to some chat, laughter and some stitching in there too! Hope all is well in your part of the world. Thanks, as always, for your continued visits and comments. It's always good to hear from you!
Until next time ……
