A House and a Hedgehog

I finished House #4 of Houses of Hawk Run Hollow over the weekend. It came out very nicely, and I am on to House #5. As mentioned earlier, it is my goal to finish this piece in 2011.

For my "Ice-Skaters Wall" (see prior post), I have started Margaret Sherry's Ice-Skating Hedgehog, and here is my progress so far. Pretty cute! I have found a couple of other ice-skating themed patterns in my stash, so will add these to my project list.

On a related note, I have rescued my old Elna Club sewing machine from oblivion and am trying to decide whether to fix it up to keep or list on Craigslist. It sure brought back memories of hours and hours of sewing clothes for myself and my kids from about 1990 to 1998. Once the cross-stitching bug bit, and other life events intervened, it was folded up and put away. I haven't even used it in the ten years I've lived in this house! Time will tell...happy stitching!
