Awake the Dawning Day finis

I finished up Awake the Dawning Day before I left for agility last evening. Am I ever glad this one is finished. I don't even remember the last time I worked on a BBD piece for as long as I did this one. I put it aside for a couple of weeks when it just wasn't doing anything for me. I made a huge push after the train ride home Monday evening. I just wanted it done no matter what. So I stopped work on the Village until late yesterday evening.
I did manage though to make a start on the building. In a world without a Harry Potter book being released in three days, I would finish this up over the weekend. But as it stands right now, my weekend will be all about Harry. I am going to purchase the CDs and the book on Saturday morning as soon as Sam's Club opens and the plan is to quilt while I listen to it. When I'm finished quilting for the day, I'll pick up where I left off and read. Even so at 700+ pages, I doubt I'll finished before Monday. Too bad I took off last Friday - I could take off this coming Monday and finish it off. :-)

Of course I have a new start so I have something to stitch on while on the train back and forth to work. Any guess as to what it is? I doubt anyone could pick this one out in it's current state so I'll just come clean. It's Celtic Heart from M Designs. I'm stitching it on 32 count French Vanilla Swirl from Silkweavers using one of the new variegated flosses from DMC - 4065. I spend a very pleasant hour or so picking out what I wanted to do next. I told myself the only conditions were 1) it had to be something I've had around for a while and 2) it had to be on my "waiting in the wings" list. I think it will be pretty and I'll make it into a pillow when I done.

I just can't get over how fast you stitch... AND how beautiful!! I'm on the edge of my seat to see your VoHRH finish, but I guess it will have to wait until after HP... :o) Awake the Dawning Day is stunning!

Lovely finish! I must admit, it's not my favourite of the latest series, but yours turned out very pretty.

AWAKE is beautiful. I love yours, but when I first saw it when it came out, it did not speak to me as much as others have. You are such a fast stitcher. I am truly amazed and you do a beautiful job.
