Hi everyone! Even though it’s not even a week since Christmas Day it already feels like ages ago. I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. Ours was lovely, spent with my parents. I do have one more Christmas pic to share, a gift that I have received from my stitching friend Jenny (no blog). When I opened the package and found this inside ….
I was just thrilled. I love this CHS design and love how she’s finished it.
I can’t say that I’ve been managing to get much stitching done in the last week but, when I did, I worked on Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow and look at what I can show you…
Yes, block 1 is completed! I can honestly say I underestimated just how much stitching there was going to be in these blocks. There I was thinking, two months to stitch a block and have it as a sort of part-time project, no problem! How wrong was I?!?!?! Now that I realise that each block will take some serious, in-depth stitching I will be making sure I work on it each week and not just think I can pick it up and have it done in a few days!!
Coming to the end of 2010 and my mind is full of what I’d like to stitch in 2011. I’m definitely going for an ornament a month and I want to also include these as smaller monthly projects.
Add in my AaHRH blocks plus one main project and maybe this ‘one project at a time’ stitcher is going to find herself a little over-extended! Let’s see how I go!!!!
Thanks for all your lovely comments about my Christmas decorating in my last post. Once we get past the New Year celebrations I will be itching to get Christmas packed away for another year and then the house will seem quite bare. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2011! I am looking forward to another year of blogging and friendship!
Until next time …
