Block #1 done

Block #1 of Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow
by Carriage House Samplings
o n 28ct Jobelan "Lambswool"
using DMC

As experienced stitchers know, the Hawk Run Hollow series calls for 40ct Linen using silk threads. My poor eyesight and small budget keeps me from this ideal, but I really love these stitching works of art and have therefore chosen to do a few of the blocks on 28ct with the more affordable DMC threads. My plan is to finish them in a quilted wall hanging.

Today I found the Hawk Run Hollow series designer's blog and have seen a preview of the Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow piece which will be out next month. Oh my - I LOVE it.

Just too many wonderful designs to possibly get them all stitched, sewn or knitted. Meanwhile, the blue quilt awaits my attention. And speaking of the blue quilt, I sent for Judy's new book and I'm sure I will want to do all her designs too. My head is spinning.

It is all too much to think about, so I'll make popcorn and grab my Kindle for some reading time.
