back to the village

I started back on the Village block six last night. And made a ton of progress too! As you can see, I changed the name of the blacksmith to Clancy O'Shay, my boy pug. I'm sure he was very flattered. :-) I only have three horses to go on the top and I'm finished - about four hours worth of work I think, hopefully I'll be done tomorrow night because tonight is agility so I won't have much stitching time. I've decided to work on the shortest of the remaining three blocks for May which is block one. It will go the quickest and hopefully help put me back on track. Speaking of getting back on track, it will help that the sections of Marquior I need to complete this month are also on the smaller side. Sometimes it just works out.

Here is Quaker Samplings II - as you can see, it's really coming along. Hopefully I'll be finished by the end of next week - I'd love to start the new Loose Feathers. I have the prettiest light green linen to stitch it on and I'm already to go as the chart and fibers arrived last week while I was on vacation.

I'm slowly catching up at work and my blog reading. Boy you guys sure were busy last week! I saw some very pretty things out there.

Lovely progress on both! Can't wait to see your LF start - I haven't decided on fabric for mine yet.

Gosh - I just love your work. It's funny how the bloggers all seem to get very busy when left unattended for just a few minutes *s*

Lovely progress! I really need to get my Village out and work on it again, too!

Hi, I've just come across your blog and your Village of Hawk Run Hollow caught my eye. I'm stitching that also, what fabric are you stitching yours on. Love your Quaker piece also ;)
