International Hermit & Stitch Weekend (IHSW).... held on the third weekend (Fri - Sun) of every month - hosted by Joyce (Random Ramblings).
Guess what? I have finished "Feelin' Festive".... see what a weekend of stitching can do!!
|"Feelin' Festive" - Designer: Lizzie Kate|
Finished Sept 2015
After putting the last couple of stitches into this one on Friday evening, I then had to decided what to stitch on for Saturday and Sunday. So after a bit of thought (and a lot of "I don't feel like tackling this one") I finally settled on the "Faces of Joan Elliott SAL" which I have had on the go for some time now....
The last time that you saw this one (back in May 2015), I was tackling the cat in the middle (as opposed to the "Cat in the Hat".... sorry couldn't resist a bit of Dr Seuss!!)
Now for some reason I still haven't finished kitty... think I might be missing some threads as I have already started the Summer Fairy next time to him... and for some reason I didn't post my start of the Summer Fairy - and I forgot to take a photo before I starting stitching on Saturday....
... so now this is what the Summer Fairy looks like as of Sunday night. I spent the weekend stitching the right side of this square, and added the start of the leaves on the left. As you can see I am jumping around a bit with whatever colour takes my fancy at the time!!
The three top squares look like this now:
Well, that's it for my ISHW update.... If you are wondering what everyone else did over the weekend, drop on over to Joyce's blog and have a look at sign up post for a full list of who was participating.
See you again soon!
Enjoy your week, happy stitching
