Is that Jack Sparrow and the Black Pearl i see through my looking glass??
Alas, no, unfortunately not ... *shame* but your eyes are not deceiving you, it's not a mirage, it is that long lost Shores of Hawk Run Hollow!
Do you remember how i left it in May this year... fed up and couldn't face all those boring ships sails.
Time for a jig around the deck with the accordian playing and a tot of rum me thinks. Come on lets all sing... "What shall we do with the drunken sailor?"..... I'm so excited, after a week on the frame (thank you Strictly for coming back, i had decided i would stitch on this each week when watching that and Merlin on a Saturday night) but enjoyed it so much kept going for a whole week and Block 6 & 7 were completed last night.
It's looking great and certainly spurred me on to start the next block next Saturday evening.
I did have one evening when i stitched something else. The Parlour evening with the ladies at NH stitching on an LHN, CCN or TSG design. This week the top flower border was added to my Daisy Lane Cottage.
The RR is ready to go onto the frame tonight. I'm planning to add the border to Lynn's square as she didn't get time to finish it when it was with her and then complete the whole thing by adding the final square.
I had a lovely gift in the post yesterday, a RAK surprise. Some of you might have seen it already on Clare's blog. She posted at the weekend that she had sent out a surprise to someone with a pic of her little stitched pillow. Isn't it cute and finished so beautifully. Thank you Clare, it's so bright and cheery and has been added to my basket of finishes from friends.
The weather is certainly turning cooler and this week so far very misty, murky and damp. This coming weekend we put the clocks back, an extra hour in bed so that'll be nice, but i'm not looking forward to the darker nights, although it does make for more stitching time doesn't it.
This past weekend DH decided it was cold enough for us to have our first real fire of the autumn. It was so cosy Saturday evening sitting stitching and watching the TV with the roaring fire. It looks like we have a halloween bat on our fireguard but its not, it's only the fixing for the handle, strange how i've never noticed it looks like a bat before till i uploaded this pic.
I hope you are all well and happy and life is being kind to you. For those in need here's a ((big hug)).
Thanks for stopping by, hope you didn't get too tipsy on the tot of rum lol.
