My Next Start?

I'm thinking of starting Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow. I got a few threads I was missing today. It's really tempting me! Here's a pic of Block 12 threads (since I always start at the bottom right).

CaHRH - threads for block #12

CaHRH block 12 threads

I have decided to go with 40 ct. Vintage Examplar (my all time favorite color of linen) instead of the regular Examplar. I forgot I had a fat 1/4 in my stash. I plan to save the regular for another project.

I'm still working on "With My Needle." I have about five more rows of the words to do and I'll be done. Hopefully, I'll get it finished today or tomorrow depending on how much stitching I can fit in. And then.... Maybe I'll start CaHRH? Write soon!

  10. Go, Nicole, go! I can't wait to watch from afar while someone stitches CatHRH. You'll be stitching it exactly the opposite of how I would, so that'll make it even more fun.

  13. Nicole, I just got my pattern for the Christmas in Hawk's Run Hollow today....such a temptation to start right away!! Altho, I still have to purchase my fabric...

    I'm just curious, why do you always start in lower right corner?

  14. Your photos of charts, floss and linen are SO beautiful. They really show the colors better than any other shop site I have seen. The colors in the CHS Christmas are so pretty. I would love to see more inside of the Joyeaux Noel book!

  18. I say go for it--I can't wait to watch your progress! Aren't the colors in it just amazing?? Your WMN looks great, too. Good for you for being done with the swirls--they'd drive me batty! It is worth it, though, for such a pretty design. :)

    I hope your son is better!

  21. YGG - love the vintage lakeside colors - they are always my preference. I'm very lukewarm on this HRH design - I did not order it but I will certainly enjoy your journey thru it. Mel

  25. Hmmmm. I think I like your fabric better than mine. It's not too late to restart. Oh, dear--what to do... In the meantime, I'll do something else. I'm glad I saw yours!

    I just got "Christmas at Hawk Run Hallow" last week from my LNS but I haven't started it yet though. Now I have every one of those patterns.

    There is another one that will be coming out called "Autumn at Hawk Run Hallow". I can't wait til I get that one.

    Take care & Happy Stitching

  28. I can't wait to see your progress on Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow. I recently got it kitted up, but promised myself I wouldn't start until I finish Shores at Hawk Run Hollow - I'll have to live vicariously through your stitching!
