Super (Puppy) Bowl Block Two Progress

Good Morning, sports fans! Hope everyone out there is having a great day today. It's Super Bowl Sunday here in the US. I have to work, but that's ok, as  it should be fairly quiet (knock on wood!). I'm a huge fan of the Puppy Bowl. I am a bit sad that I am going to miss it this year as I'm working nights, but if I can get the chance to take off early, that won;t be so bad. The contestants of the Puppy Bowl are picking the 49er's to win. But you know how that goes! :)

At any rate, I picked my Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow back up and I am loving it again. I am waiting on more floss to come in, as Block Two does not contain a lot of the threads I used in Block One. No worries. I have plenty to do in the mean time, in between time! :)

Design: Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow

Fabric: 40 count Picture This Plus Cashel linen in Legacy

Fibers Used: Needlepoint, Inc. silk floss as charted

I purchased a new Q-Snap cover to better fit my 11 x 11 frame. I was using one that was for an 8 x 8. Yikes! I purchased the one pictured from Barbara at TrulyN2Stitching Designs. She is wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her. This particular cover is in shades of turquoise blue and has kitty paw prints all over it. I love it! :)

Well, I best be off. I have stuff to do before I have to go into work. Hope everyone has a great day! :)
