A New Start

Happy Monday morning to ya. I can say that now that I've had my pot of coffee and it's almost noon. I am not a morning person. In fact, if I had my druthers, I'd shift my schedule about 3 hours later than normal.

Last night I got on a roll, stitching-wise, and told DH not to wait for me to come to bed. I actually finished the first block of "Shores of Hawk Run Hollow", hereafter referred to as SoHRH.

As you can see, I changed the fabric. I'm using 40 count "Lucky Penny" from R&R. I'm also using Anchor floss. As I mentioned last week, I spent the better part of a morning making then floss conversion, but so far, I think it's working. I may decide to backstitch the lighthouse at some later date, but I'm going to wait until I get more blocks done to see if I really need to. I detest backstitching.

I slept in til 8:10 this morning and have already done more productive stuff than I have in a week. So, at least until Christmas, I'll probably do the night owl thing. I am sooooooo in the Christmas stitching panic.


  1. A beautiful new start! I'll be anxious to watch the beauty as it grows!

  2. Your finished block is beautiful! I can't wait to see more. Love your fabric choice, BTW.

  3. Happy Monday indeed. I'm feeling good today - it is catching!

  4. you are blistering it up sista!~~ Looks great!~

  5. I can't wait to start the HRH series. Your start is beautiful.

    And I am completely against backstitching. It's against my religion.


  6. I LOVE this one! Great start and I love your fabric choice!!
