A couple of days ago as I was stitching away at block 3 of HoHRH the thought “more freakin’ birds!?” pops into my head and I sigh, more birds. Really didn’t I just stitch a whole mess of hover crows in the previous block? How many birds are on this thing? I pull the chart out and look at the cover photo… OMG there are birds everywhere! Geez… CHS must have a thing for birds. Ok, back to stitching, stitch stitch stitch.
I’m not very bright. Houses of HAWK Run Hollow. Yes, I’ve been stitching on this project for three months. I’ve had the chart for over a year. I’ve drooled all over multiple WIP pictures on the web, and it wasn’t until this week that I put together all those birds = hawks. SMRT that’s me.
As much as I hate to say this, I’m going to miss completing block 3 in March. I still have to flood the roof, house, and ground surrounding those diamonds (I love those diamonds so much, probably my favorite part of this chart to date) with color.
I have to set this one aside for the weekend. I have a WNRR mailing due on Tuesday and I haven’t even finalized my pick for it, let alone put a single stitch in. The block isn’t big and I think I’ve got my choices narrowed down to 2, but the fact remains that I have to STITCH IT by TUESDAY. Sorry, the caps are for my lazy self…
P.S. Green birds? Is there an algae epidemic going through the Hollow?
