Picked this back up after fizzling out on stitching all of the snow in Block Two. FINALLY finished that up yesterday, so I'm back to stitching on a HAED again (http://heavenandearthdesigns.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=604_85&products_id=2675).


This is my Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow piece, Blocks One through Three. Here are the deets:


Design: Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow



Designer: Carriage House Samplings



Fabric: 40 count Picture This Plus Newcastle linen in Legacy



Fibers Used: Needlepoint, Inc. silk flosses in 123, 124, 127, 128, 155A, 158, 159, 184A, 186, 204, 206, 241, 242, 244, 251, 293, 303, 313, 316, 331, 345, 401, 422, 473, 475, 512, 523, 524A, 526, 527, 548, 556, 587, 623, 636, 671, 692, 693, 694, 695, 722, 724, 725, 765, 767, 856, 867, 871, 902, 912, 928, 951, 957, 963, 972, 976, 982, 987, 991BB, and 993. The Thread Gatherer's Silk n' Colors #035 Mint Frost.


Stitcher's Notes: Stitched a tiny 'W' for the gate. I let DH choose which house would be 'ours' in this piece and he really liked the house in block two over the one in block four. Letter taken from the book
ABC Miniatures au point de croix by Franoise Prax for Marabout.






And here is a picture of Blocks One through Three shown together:

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I had to smile at this, because I am one of the most impatient people on the planet. In this instance, it's more a case of dogged perseverance than patience.  Cool


Thank you ladies, for all of your kind comments. Smiley
