Slow Motion Fireworks

I meant to post these photos all week but just never made it to opening Blogger.  Last Saturday morning, the time change hadn't yet made it dark again in the mornings and I was up early. 

I poured a cup of Morning Joe and sat down in my office/craft room to stitch with the early morning sun streaming over my shoulder.  As of 7:30, I had finished all of the black background-YEAH!

By 9:30 I had filled in the gold part of the fireworks display and put it down to get some chores started.


Between errands I was able to complete the fireworks on my current C@HRH block and move onto filling in the rest of the piece.  Here is the progress at 2:00pm.


The Happy New Year words are done and I hope to get more time with this piece over the weekend.
I'm off to answer phones for our local Waban Projects Telethon which is always held the Saturday before St. Patti's day. 

This is my third year being involved as a volunteer and it's so much fun to help out an amazing organization in addition to making a donation.  Happy Saturday!

Great progress. I remember what a good feeling it was to have the black all stitched on this block!

Barb said...

Great progress, I bet you are happy to get the black finished!

You made some great progress on your HRH piece. There is also a night scene on the Houses piece and I know how much time it takes to fill in all the black. But once it's done it makes you feel good.
