This was a surprise
Next up was Morning Dew, which I have not worked in for seven years.  I had considered regulating this one to UFO status since it's the only project I have on Aida fabric and, well, I haven't work on it for seven years.  But I decided to give it a go since I did have to expend some effort to even find it (the kit being out of print) and so at one time I did *really* want to do it.  So...

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I quite enjoyed working on this.  The picture does not do it justice, the colors are so vibrant and the design is lovely! I hope it doesn't take me another seven years to get back to it!

Losing my stitching mojo again?
I hope not, but I really should have gotten more done in the last month.  Maybe it's just the weather, which has really been getting to me.  I hate the cold and there has been way too much more than usual.  One morning I got up and it was -5 F! I actually had to then double check to make sure my desktop hadn't somehow started reporting the wind chill in the status bar rather than the actual temperature.  I've never seen it get that low for the 20+ years I've been here and even getting into the single digits is rare.  Now we're into February and there doesn't seem to be any end in sight.  So, I'm just depressed.


I started working on my neglected projects.  First off I finished Heaven Above

It was nice to have a finish to start off the new year.  I don't imagine I'll see another anytime soon!

Next I worked on Frog Prince.

I must admit I have a love/hate type of relationship with this project.  On the one hand I love it since it makes me think of my youngest daughter.  When she was small she had beautiful ringlets and loved frogs, plus this is one of her favorite designs.  On the other hand, the conversion so far has not been very good.  The artwork is just not this dark. I am hoping that when all is said and done it will come together like I have seen other HAEDs do.  So I will persevere, but for now I'm going to work down rather than across. So this is the first page, plus the first 35 rows of the second.  And while I still think it is far too dark, I can see some detail there.

Finally, Houses of Hawk Run Hollow.
Sadly, I did not enjoy working on this at all.  Maybe it was just the block itself.  Those dogs are just ridiculous, I mean are they flying or what?  I am looking forward to the next block (when this project comes up again three years or so from now), gotta love that cow!
