Block 3 Happy Dance











I would have had this to show yesterday however as I was getting ready to stitch the bottom border in, I realized that my pears were one stitch lower than they should have been. Did you hear my scream of frustration?

I spent last night picking them out and starting over. But it's done - woohoo! I think I may wait until June 1 before starting Block 4. It's a big one with a lot of fill (I'm going to work the block immediately below this one) so I'm thinking it might be good to take a little break from this piece. Three blocks down and only 9 more to go!

Love your ambition. I don't think I could do any of these projects. They just seem so big. Beautiful Job.

It's lovely Patti, you're really coming along with it.

I love watching all the progress on the HRH series that so many stitchers seem to have fallen in love with. Yours is quite lovely. But I stand with Hillery ... when I tackle a large project, it's almost always a Teresa Wentzler piece. The only large monthly piece I have ever done was Raise the Roof's Crabby All Year which was nowhere near as complex or sophisticated as any of the HRH pieces.
