Daylight savings time sucks - ok not really but

I'm totally wiped out from the time change! It was last Sunday and I'm not even close to getting used to it. I fell asleep on the way home from work yesterday and again this morning. So I didn't get as much done on the Celtic Birds as I would have liked. But any progress is progress. :-) I should be finished with this piece by the weekend for sure. I had been planning on using it for a pillow but I'm not sure now if it will work or not - it's kinda long and narrow - not what I was really hoping for. Darn, I might have to quick do something else. :-) Like that is a problem. LOL! Maybe something from the new Blackbird Designs book I picked up a couple of weeks ago? That might work....

Here is my progress on Block 5 of the Village - closing in on the half way point for this block. And can I just say again how much I love the wordy blocks? :-)

I've received some nice stash in the mail I have yet to mention. My Silkweaver FOTM came on Monday and I received two pretty linens - a nice green and another piece of cameo (one of my favorites). My first two "girls" from CHS came yesterday - Mary Margaret and Elizabeth. How cute they are - hopefully my Lakeside Linens from Drema will come soon - I've been holding off on buying Molly because of the charting errors on that one. I'm hoping it will be reprinted and I won't have to deal with it. And lastly my Alpha series from Sheepish Designs came in. I'm planning on all three on the same piece of linen. I might dye my own piece because I think I have a long enough piece of cream or white in my stash. It's not hard at all and I have all the supplies left over from the linen I dyed for Marquior. Maybe this weekend I think about it. I have nothing going on so I'll have plenty of time.

I love starting new projects. It is even better when getting new stash. Good progress on these pieces.

I am totally in awe of your stitching. Now I have seen the ABC by The Drawn Thread I just have to have them - your work is incredible and I have put your blog onto mine now and sorry I didn't find it earlier. I am really in awe!

Everything is so pretty! I love your VoHRH. I know what you mean about the time change, I am normally up at the crack of dawn and dozing at, ahem, 9 pm or so. I haven't been to bed before 11:00 all week and no dozing and I know it's the time change. Hope you get some rest!

If you didn't want to do a tie-on pillow for Celtic Bird, I think it would still look good as a pillow, but a simpler style maybe, just a rectangle with some backing fabric, like a bolster pillow? Nice progress anyway, I must stitch this one.

VoHRH is looking gorgeous too :)

I love the color you are using for the Celtic Birds - I sure hope my Silkweaver FOTM shows up soon, so many others have received theirs, except for me... hmm....

I have to totally agree that daylight savings SUCKS a big one. Back to getting up in the dark, which is so depressing. I love those birds, have to put those on my list for when I next order XS. Have a restful weekend.
