The Village of Hawk Run Progress 06-25-09

The Village of Hawk Run Progress 06-25-09

Finally I was abble to take a picture of my progress on The Village of Hawk Run by Carriage House Samplings.  I have had this piece in my rotation for sometime but had decided to only concentrate on it for right now.  Since my move I have really not had the time to stitch.  Now that my unpacking is almost finished I have found more time to stitch.  I am taking a trip over the 4th of July to Portland, Oregon and am planing on bringing the piece to work on.  I have brought stitching with me before on vacations and seldom get to work on it, but I know if I don’t bring it I will wish I had, so it is going with me.

I guess I should be happy it is Wednesday, because we are halfway through the week!!  I am working on trying to unpack the last 6 boxes from my move, just does not seem that it will ever end.  Ever have that feeling?  My office/cross stitch (STASH) room is the final room to get straightened out, so I am trying really hard to stick with this project today.  My goal is to have it done before Saturday.

Worked on my Village of Hawk Run a little bit last night.  I know I haven’t posted a picture but will try tonight to take it off the Q-Snaps to take a picture.  I am having a lot of fun stitching this piece because each square is its own picture.  The misleading thing about this design is that each square is 94 x 94 and there are 12 of them!!

I’m going to spend sometime going through my stitching rotation.  I would like to bring 2 more WIP into the mix.

Happy Wednesday!!

During the month of May I moved from the San Diego area, Carlsbad to be exact to Yorba Linda in Orange County.  I really don’t like moving and this one was difficult because of the distance.  But for the most part I am settled and now getting ready for a vacation to the Oregon Coast.  Have not been there since I was a little girl with my grandparents so I am really looking forward to it.

Stitching wise I am continuing to work on my Village of Hawk Run from Carriage House Samplings and am almost 1/2 done.  I am going to take a picture tonight and post my WIP.  I am planning on bringing it with me on my trip, just in case I get anytime to stitch.
