A Third Done!

I just finished up block 3 of Village of Hawk Run today, so now I'm 1/3 done with it. This block is definitely one of my favorites!

The kids started school yesterday and are adjusting well. I'm so proud at how well Matthew did in his first day of kindergarten. My babies are all growing up!! :)

Woodland Berries

I was getting ready to order the Dinky Dyes needed for the "Woodland Berries" design in the Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers chart when I came across one that I had kitted with another chart and then I remembered I had one lone Dinky Dyes skein in a box in my craft closet and amazingly it was the one I needed. That never happens!!

I really love this chart and want to stitch it soon. I would like to finish up Melicent first though. I think the threads are so pretty on the Vintage Light Examplar.

I Feel so Blah...

I'm not sure what's wrong with me lately. I've just been so blah. It must be summer. I'm ready for fall. I was ready for fall in spring. I'd rather just skip right over summer - especially in the South where it's in the 90's everyday and the heat index is in the 100's. I have been stitching a little. I finished the model and got back to Village of Hawk Run. I'm working on the 3rd block now...

I went stitching in Manning yesterday. I forgot to take pictures, but we had a lot of fun as always. It was great to see the regulars and to meet some new people! Chris and Myra came for the first time and their stitching (and sewing) was even more beautiful in person! It was great to meet you both!

I want to thank Amy again for putting together a wonderful get together. She goes through a lot of work for all of us! Thanks Amy!

School starts in a little over a week and I'm stressing big time! My baby is going into kindergarten and my oldest is starting middle school. It's a lot of change and I keep wondering where the last five years have gone! It's seems like I wrote this post just yesterday!! :)
