Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I am just speechless, the kind outpouring of sweet comments yesterday about my small attempt at design is completely overwhelming!!! My chest is so puffed up I can barley reach the keyboard - my head so swollen my neck aches!!!! I do thank you most heartily !!! At some point I will post the chart so that you can download it - but, I hope to have cleaned it up and make clear some things before then. I hope to do this sooner rather than later.
Not too much else happening - I am diligently working away on a couple of exchanges that I want to get out in the next day or two. I am also at a stitching quandary - or I was, I should say. Last night as I sat in the big old stitching chair without needle in hand - I thought about what to stitch. Now, like everyone else I have my WIPS - and I have my "Piles O' Stash" that need to be turned into WIPS. I even have a few Kitted up things..... now, my quandary was "what to stitch." I couldn't just sit idle and stitch nothing. I couldn't just play with Lil Smokie, or another of the Who Hounds. And, god forbid I actually clean up something or run the vacuum!! So I dug around in the WIP basket ( I didn't have to move an inch to do this, so that became the obvious choice) and pulled this out.....
... you remember this great piece. I so enjoyed working on this, why did I put it away? If I had to guess that reason, it might have been because, there is lots of "very pale jade" silk in my future on the large central square. So I got some VPJ NPI silk out - and I started to stitch away on this again! I do love the Hawk Run Hollow series and I think that Shores, followed closely by Autumn are my two favorites! Whoops, I do love me some Christmas at HRH too! With only Village at HRH in the completed pile I have many stitching hours ahead of me before they are all completed.
I posted the Harvest Pumpkin-Spice Bar recipe over at Blacksheep Bakes, click HERE to go there. I posted the original recipe and also the variations I made as I went along.
It is a tasty cake and will do you proud this coming Fall.
That's about it for today sports fans!! I do thank you all for taking the time to leave those kind comments, your continued support of my craziness and for just stopping by. Do come again!!
