Year of Hawk Run Hallow

I started a SAL with my friend Ellen on January 1st. We are doing a block a month on CHS Year of HRH.  I am stitching it on 40ct Lakeside linen Sand Dune with NPI silk.  I finished block 1 and now it's back to model stitching and a pre-stitch for an upcoming class.

We had lots of snow yesterday so today will be clean up so we can start the work week tomorrow.  Oh what fun!  Quite honestly, I HATE snow and cold weather.  Looks real pretty from inside when you can be snuggled up but just plain yuck.  If I could move somewhere warm that didn't have large insects and reptiles I would definitely consider it but I hate those worse than I hate winter.

Happy New Year

So hard to believe we are starting a new year.  2016 has been a year of change for me.  I started a get fit program for myself which required more time working out and less time focusing on sedentary hobbies.  I have a goal of 50lbs of weight loss and so far have dropped 32lbs. 
I changed my job before Thanksgiving making for less time commuting and a better balance.  I am now back to fitting in some Stitching time and feeling a better balance.
My stitching goals are to enjoy the process.  Love what I am working on when I get to work on it.  I am continuing my model stitching.  I started Year at Hawk Run Hallow on New Year's Eve and hope to work on some of the many class pieces I have started.
I hope to do a regular bog post and share what's happening in my world.
Happy New Year and Happy Stitching everyone.
