Halloween at Hawk Run Hollow update
I've been busy working on Halloween at HRH, and wow, is this a fun stitch. If you've been toying with the idea of starting one of these behemoths, I encourage you to jump in. They're big, but they're broken up into smaller squares. I get the same satisfaction as I do working on smaller projects.
I've started on block two last week, and I'm almost finished! You can see a couple of my birthday gifts from Mr. Wonderful in this photo - the grime guard from SewMuch2Luv on Etsy and my Star Trek needle minder from Mad For Minders on Etsy. (You can visit their shops by clicking their names.) I'm loving the grime guard. I can tuck all that excess evenweave inside so it isn't flopping all over my lap and getting dirty as I stitch. And isn't that fabric cute? Love those bees.
Here is block one finished. I had been forewarned that the spider webs in the corners would be difficult to stitch, but I enjoyed them. I started by trying to put my stitches exactly where the pattern showed to put them, but soon decided to just "eyeball" it. As I stitched them, I felt like a spider weaving and anchoring her web.
Here are blocks one and two side by side. It's so colorful. I'm over the moon excited about how the project will look when it's finished.

Be well, friends, and I wish you lots of stitching time!
