Village block finis


I finished up block two of the Village of Hawk Run Hollow last night. To be honest, I'm giddy with happiness that I'm almost finished with this piece. I can't believe that I've been working on it for almost a year now. And I'm almost done!!! Yeah!!!

Here is my completed block two. As you can see, I made several changes. I think they work well.


Today is St. Reatham Thursday (I remembered!). Tomorrow I think I'm going to put Awake the Dawning Day aside for a few days. This weekend I have to make my ornament for the SAL and I think I'm going to start something small. I recently purchased Coq au Pins from Twisted Oaks Designs. It's so cute! There are several smalls that go with it and I think that will be a nice break. I think I'm going to do this with a dark blue linen with cream fibers and cream beads.

Wow! This is the point where I would put it down for months, and then forget that I had done so much on it. I hope you'll be able to finish it quickly. It really is a stunner.

It looks amazing! I wish I could get motivated to work on mine again ;)

I love that Coq au pins design - I saw it on Hoffman's site a few weeks ago. I think it will be so cute all finished up!

Congrats - it's nearly done! It's a beautiful design and I would love to stitch it but I'm a coward when it comes to such big pieces.

The Cog au Pins is too cute! :)
