Long Day!

I didn't sleep much last night. I stayed up until 11 something stitching VOHRH. Dh got home from work around 2 something and woke me up. I couldn't get back to sleep until 3 something. I then had to wake up at 5:30 am to take dh to the airport. I decided to book his flight in Birmingham because it was $200 cheaper. Big mistake! I'd gladly pay the $200 to not have to drive five hours in one day. What was I thinking?? I was thinking it's only 2 1/2 hours to get there... but I wasn't thinking it's also 2 1/2 hours back. Oh well, live and learn. Construction traffic made it very slow going on the way back. Hopefully it's not as bad Tuesday when I go to pick him up. Oh and another thing! I decided I would visit a cross stitch shop while there. Anything Stitched sounded like a good shop to check out. Well, I went to a fabric website that had the address and mapped it out. When I got there it was residential and not the correct address at all! I was very upset at myself for not rechecking the address, but I just assumed it was correct. That's what I get for assuming!! Oh well, live and learn once again!!!

I tried to stitch some when I got home but my eyes were so heavy and tired that I only got a little bit done...

Village of Hawk Run Hollow - progress as of 7/8/06

I took a picture with my camera - with flash, without flash, and finally decided to scan it and the colors are the truest with the scan.

I've got the bassinet all ready for baby! I put it in my room and filled the bottom with blankets and diapers and wipes.

Bassinet - all ready! Bassinet... just waiting for baby.
Just need the baby now!

Well, I'm off to bed! Hopefully to get a good, long nights sleep! I won't have many of those left! :) Write later!


  1. Hey Nicole, you are amazing! I love your work on VOHRH and can only commiserate with you about the lack of sleep (it's too warm here to sleep decently). Don't know where you find the energy to do all that you do. Hope you'll get some sleep tonight.

  2. Wow, you have made some great progress on VOHRH. The colors are so pretty IRL.

  3. VOHRH is off to a wonderful start! My bday is at the end of the month, so I told DH to get me the NPIs, what the heck :-) You have inspired me! Your bassinet looks wonderful - new baby will be so comfy in there! It must be soon now....

  4. Your stitching looks amazing. Now forgive me, but what is it that is in the middle of the baby's crib?

  5. Ooh - the bassinet looks so cozy and soon it will be filled with a beautiful baby!

    Nice job on VoHRH...

  6. I can't wait to buy and start VOHRH. I like it so much better than HOHRH but I will probably do that one too. I have been starting so many projects lately that I just can't start that one yet so I have postponed buying it until the fall when I am ready. Although, let's face it, considering the size of my stash now, I will never be "ready" :)
