Shores of Hawk Run Hollow

Finally I have finished Block 1 of Shores. Now on to Block 2. I don't think it will take me as long as the lighthouse.

I am on the second day of stitching and relaxing until I have to return to work. (sigh) I am still looking for a frame for Three Crows. I have been to three Goodwills.

I saw some hand framed cross stitch  that someone had stitched. Most were Cherished Teddies and Alma Lynn Angels. They were stitched on 18 count aida and most of them had stains on them.

Also I saw a huge design stitched on the 18 count and framed in a 12 x 16 frame. It was a cross stitchers prayer or something similar. $1.50 I started to get it and see if I could tea dye it and reframe it but I just don't like the Aida. Any ways somebody put a lot of work into these and it is a shame they ended up at the Goodwill.

I couldn't sleep so am going to go and try again before daylight. My throat is sore. Hope I am not catching anything.
