Hornbook Angel

Hornbook Angel by Primitive Needle
July 7- July 11, 2009

Another busy week has gone by, and a bit of stitching to go along with it! Looking for another easy project, I found this Hornbook Angel. 2 different Crescent Colors, and a great piece of 'Stash' Linen; 36ct, stitched over 2 with 2 threads. I really like the fullness of the thread; I am doing that as well with my Village. I had this stitched almost in a day, but went through an entire skein of thread, had to wait a few days to get another skein, and vola-- I am now done!! It was fun to stitch!

I have Block 10 of my Village half done, and hope to complete it today, and get started on 11. I am so close, it is really getting exciting!

We are off to another fabulous summer-- tons of friends, family, stitching and laughter!!! I cant wait. Yesterday a wonderful potluck, with a variety of excellent salads and desserts. Gosh, what a fabulous lunch!! I hope we can do it again soon!!

Thanks to everyone for your wonderful comments yet again, it is always a pleasure to read them! Hope you are all enjoying your summer!

  4. Well, I want to stitching the hornbook angel too! Dang I always get enabled by your blog! I'm anxiously awaiting your next finish on Village. I think of all three that CHS has done, that has to be my favorite because the colors are wonderful. Sounds like you're having a wonderful summer! Busy with friends and family and stitching too! What could be better.
