The Village of Hawk Run Hollow



I am on the last block of this monster.  I bought the chart in 2008 when the SWANs went to Williamsburg.  I think I started it in 2010.  I am stitching away on this thing as much as possible.

Finally Putting Up Christmas


I really loved my Christmas tree this year.  We got a new one for our new space and it worked so well.  I just took it down and I didn't really want to.  Ready to be packed up!

Big News and Big Sale


I am so sorry to tell you that The Needle Works here in Austin is closing March 16!  I know that Colleen has been trying to sell the business for six months but has had no serious inquiries.  There is a video on her website if you would like to hear her talk about it.   The SWANS are so sad.  I guess I better hustle up a new dining table since we will be stitching at each other's homes.   My DR is empty right now(except for the new rug I got for Christmas).

Happy New Year!


Happy New Year to all my stitching friends!  Any stitching resolutions?  I resolve to let stitching consume most of 2019!  I have three nativity sets going and I would really like to finish them up!
