A Holiday Happy Dance


Houses of Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplings on 40 ct Pearled Barley by Lakeside Linens

I did a little happy dancing while on vacation - I finished off House 5 of Houses of Hawk Run Hollow! And I even got started on House 6, the dreaded black house, as this block is completely filled in. I had great intentions of getting a lot accomplished, but my Prairie Schooler turkey was just too much fun to play with last week and I couldn't put him down.

Where has this week gone? This is the first day I have been able to leave my windows open and the a/c hasn't come chugging on first thing in the morning. Ahh, some fresh air, that's what it feels like! I still haven't caught up on my blog reading, and I haven't completely unpacked or caught up on my laundry yet. Well that's what weekends are for! And for some stitching too I hope!!

Oh and I finally picked out a paint colour for my sewing room - its called Seaway Mist. And wouldn't you know after looking at dozens of colours a few weeks ago, this one was the first one I picked up from Home Depot! I would post a picture but hubby made off with my paint chip when he went off to buy the paint. I think he was afraid I would change my mind or something, hmmm, like I would ever do that?

Congrat on the finish of House #5 - looks great!! Good luck with the black house which sounds like it will be quite a challenge.

Wendy,

Congratulations on house five and I hope you can get through the next one without too much pain. It's hard to stitch something that is completely filled in. It seems to take FOREVER!

Have a great weekend and I hope you do find some time to stitch.

Yay Wendy! I am on that particular block right now and hope it won't take too terribly much longer either. I am excited to be stitching for you in F&S, by the way :-)

Congratulations on your finish, house 5 looks great. House 6 will look wonderful too, and think what an accomplishment that will feel like to have behind you. Have fun painting the room now that you've settled on a paint color, it sounds lovely.
