Block one finis

I finished up block one of The Village of Hawk Run Hollow yesterday afternoon using the recommended linen and NPI silks. Only two to go!! I'm loving this more and more. It's so big on 32 count. I'm going to break the bank framing it. :-)
I also found time for a couple of other things. Here is my May Ornament-Stitch-Along, a small one this month, Santa Keeper from The Drawn Thread (a freebie from their site).
I was done with block one and my ornament and it was only early afternoon yesterday so I went through my stash to see what I should work on as Marquior ABC wasn't what I really wanted to do (bad girl). So I pulled out Blackstone Fantasy Garden to work on while I watched a Star Wars film fest on DVD (in honor of it's 30th anniversary). I was glad I picked this up because I really love it. This time instead of working on a quadrant at a time, I worked on a single motif until that motif was finished. It is quicker working them this way as you really do get into a rhythm. I'll work on this until St. Reatham Thursday and then it will be June and I can start on something totally new. :-)

Wow, you're so nearly finished with your Village, it looks fantastic! I wish I could get back to mine, but it's just not calling to me at the minute.

Cute ornament and great progress on BFG as well!

Ewwwwww, I'm one block behind you on the Village. Your's is just stunning. I'm doing mine on 36 ct and it's pretty big so I can just imagine how big yours is ;)
