  71. I am SO disappointed you didn't get it done before Christmas 2009. Really.

    (Just thought I'd offer something different than the 78 comments above. You know. Who needs another "Oh. My. Goooooooooooooooooood, you insane, stitchy angel marvel of a woman, you *finished* Christmas At Hawk Run Hollow and you have 3 kids running around (3 BOYS) and you lead a busy life and you actually finished a HRH design and it looks amazingly beautiful and I'm your biggest fan"?)

    So, I take it you're already halfway on Autumn at HRH?
