Good News! I Did Not Die of Boredom

Okay, there may be a few people who don't consider that good news.

I finished Block 8 of Shores of Hawk Run Hollow.  It's a relief to know that extreme boredom probably won't be listed as COD (cause of death).  But it was close. I hate filling in the background. As you can see, I replaced the memorial verse with my personalization. Now I only have 3 blocks left to stitch by Christmas. Piece of cake!

It was after 10:30 last night when I put the last stitch in, but I immediately pulled Quaker Diamonds out of my bag and started it. I'm so excited. I may stitch all weekend.

  2. Shores is looking great Tommye. I have this in my stash and am going to get round to it one of these days. I'm sure you'll enjoy Quaker Diamonds. I've recently finshed Quakers and Quilts also by Rosewood House and once I started it I couldn't stitch on anything else till it was finished! Enjoy!!

  4. Whew! You had me worried there. :) It looks great! Are you using the silks or DMC? I have all the HRH charts and would like to start them, but I can't decide if it's worth it to buy the silk or just use the DMC. Opinion?

  7. That looks great. I love your personalization. Hopefully you think that imitation is the sinceriest form of flattery as I'm thinking of doing the same with mine.

  13. I laughed at your comment about not dying from boredom. I'm working on a piece that I've ben working on for five years and it's all fill-in. Talk about boring! But your piece looks wonderful - only three more blocks!!!
