Gentle Readers and Dear Friends well today starts our 4 or 5 days of on and off rains... it is damp out there now - just a sprinkle... so we'll see what actually happens!!
The stitching I did over the weekend - that I can show - was on a old WIP - I see it all the time in the basket o'WIPs, but just never reach for it. I thought to myself I should get on it as I could actually finish it this year!! The piece is Shore's of Hawk Run Hollow - a great piece I really like and for the life of me can not figure out why I don't stitch on it more. Well, I got quite a bit done.... here's an over all shot as it stands now-
I really should have taken a before shot to show from where it came - I got all the "water" under the large ship in the middle done - and I finished up Block 8. I am still not sure how to finish out Block 7... I want to have it more personal with some sort of family info... and one of my latest obsessions is Ancestry.com - so I am gathering up lots of Family info. Some of it I had no clue about. Like one of my middle names - not a single person in my family I ever asked knew where it came from. I have found it was one of my GGG Grandmother's maiden names. I kinda knew it was going to be a last name but just could not place it on any "Branch" of my Tree.
And here is a better shot of Block 8 -
I don't know why but this has always been one of my favorite Blocks on this piece. Now only three to complete and Block 7 - and I'll have a finish. Then I can start either Autumn at HRH or Christmas at HRH.... always looking to the next project!!
I posted the recipe for Pineapple Upside Down Cake over at Blacksheep Bakes - you can click HERE to go there. It is super easy.
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
