Lazy weekend

When I say I had a lazy weekend, what I mean is my butt didn't get off the couch for two days. :-) But that gave me a ton of time to stitch and work on a few other projects. :-)
I was feeling kind of bored with The Herb Gatherer Friday night so I started on my August house for Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. And worked on it for the rest of the weekend. And got a lot done! It really went fast. The rest should go pretty quickly if I keep at it at night. There are several animals and a tree in this block in addition to the house so what is left is pretty lightly stitched. So in one weekend, I'm back on track.

I'll be working on the Herb Gatherer now only on the way back and forth to work - that is until I get to the beading portion of the project. That I'll have to do at home because it's way to hard to sew on beads on the train. But I should be done with this by the end of the month. Yeah! I received my new Loose Feathers in the mail on Friday and I'm missing most of the suggested fibers and with a couple I don't have good substitutions so this will have to wait for a while. But I went through my stash and of course have several fully kitted BBD that I can start if that is what my fancy will be when I'm done with Herb Gatherer.

Aoife says thanks for all the warm birthday wishes. She had a great day. :-)

There is nothing greater than a weekend of stitching!! Looks like you made great progress on Houses. You're actually making me want to pull out mine again and work on it. And love Herb Gatherer - SB designs are always such fun to work on.

You got soooo much done on Herb Gatherer soooo quickly! I am seeing it and being inspired to want to stitch that one as well. I am wondering if you would want to do some sort of trade for it when you are done. I am sure I have something in my stash that you would love to trade it for. E-mail me if you are interested.
