Block One Start

Started my Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplings yesterday. I am really, really loving this piece. This block is stitching up so, so quickly! Since I am behind on the month, I am hoping I can get it finished by the end of the month and get the border for next month's block at least started. 


Well, at any rate, here is what I have so far:


Design: Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow


Designer: Carriage House Samplings


Fabric: 40 count Picture This Plus Cashel linen in Legacy


Fibers Used: Needlepoint, Inc. silk floss as charted






I am really liking the fabric substitution. I wasn't jazzed with the called for Vintage Exemplar. It was not a light color at all!  Here is a quick snap of the two fabrics. The Picture This Plus is on the left, the Lakeside Linens 40 count Vintage Exemplar is on the right:






Believe it or not, the Vintage Exemplar is actually a bit darker than it is in the picture! As i like my stitching to 'pop' out more, I went with the 40 count Picture This Plus Cashel linen in Legacy. It's probably my most absolute favorite fabric to stitch on. One day I hope to have yards of the stuff, LOL! :)


Well, I best be off. It's time for breakfast and then more stitching. Hope everyone is having a fantastic week! :)
