4 Years, 6 Months in the Making

Hello, fellow stitchers, just popping in to announce that my Village of Hawk Run Hollow is FINISHED!! I'm positively verklempt!  I started it in July 2007 on our annual vacation in the Outer Banks.  I take a new project to start every year at the beach.  I've kind of picked at it here and there, and finally, at he beginning of 2011, I said "Enough already...you have until the end of the year to finish it!"  Which didn't quite happen.  So, that is when I made myself work on it for 30 minutes each day until it was done. 

So, first is a picture of the last block I worked on, and then the entire sampler.  Photos are awful, as usual! Piece is very wrinkled, and this was taken at about 8:00 this morning, on a cloudy day.  But, you get the idea...

Thanks for looking!
