Shores of Hawk Run, block 3

I got another block done! This is my third block. I don’t know what to think about that seahorse, he’s kind of silly looking, but I like everything else about the block. I am going to start the one next to it now, with the white house and the mermaid. After that I think I’ll do the big center block with the ship. This is a very nice project to work on. Maybe I can get the next block done this month? Wish me luck. I finished my sister’s baby quilt too! I need to get some pictures of that up soon. It’s very cute.

There was a comment on my last post about what types of fabric I liked to stitch with. When I was first using linens and evenweaves, I liked a 28 count evenweave. It was easier for me to count the linen that way, after I got comfortable with that, I moved into the 32 count linens. That is my favorite now. I don’t have a favorite type of linen that I know of, but 32 count is a nice size. I haven’t attempted a 40 count or anything, it is just too small for me to do right now.

And I have a question to all of you chefs out there, what is your favorite clam chowder recipe? I’d like to learn to make it at home! Pass on the recipe if you can! Thanks :)

I have no idea how you make those...they are so tiny. I love,love,LOVE cross stitch but I am blind as a bat! I wish I would have discovered it before my eyes started to fail. I think I would have had fun. Your piece looks great. I love the Summer theme, specially since I am buried in snow, LOL!

Wow Heather,you have speedy needles! Looks Terrific! I have to admit I didn't like the seahorse that much either but I left him is as is.

Whata great progress picture! I love this piece so much so it's always a pleasure for me to discover it on some blogs, in various kinds of preogress. You are so very fast stitching this up.

I just found your blog, and I'm working on "Shores" too, so I'm going to keep tabs on your progress. I have a goal to get 1 1/2 blocks done this month, but I haven't worked on it yet, so many things going on!
I also like to quilt, so I enjoy looking at your beautiful things.
Good luck on stitching, I'll check back again.
