I actually hung up my Village without a frame at home just so I could look at it at night. :-) I really want to get going on the Houses now - one block a month like the Village. Hopefully by September I'll have the first months worth of silks so I can get going with it.
Here is my progress on Celtic Heart. Depending on my mood when I work on it is how much I like it or not. Today I like it, yesterday I didn't. The tan portion of the variegated thread I'm using is very close to the linen I picked out. So in some places it's hard to see and the design is fading. I would love to do a series of these hearts in different colors and hang them all together in the same frame. I think that would look really cool. But do I ever think I get around to doing two more of these? And framing them?? I doubt it but it's a nice wish. ;-)
Yesterday was St. Reatham day and I got in a solid four hours of stitching. But I went to bed before I took a progress photo and forgot to again this morning before I left for my train. You are not missing much, I'm working on the top border with the dogs and the alphabet right under that so it doesn't look like much as been done at all. I figure I need to do some of the boring stuff instead of leaving that for last - I'd never get the piece finished if all I have left is solid rows of lines.
Have a great weekend! I'll be at a Jimmy Buffet concert tomorrow! It should be fun.
