A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
This weekend was International Hermit & Stitch Weekend and once again I was working on Sunday! Never mind. I got lots done today instead.
On Friday I went to my Crafty Coffee Morning and took Mrs Peggotty's Alice with me. Here is where she was last IHSW:
And here is where she is now:
stitched over one on 25 count blue evenweave
The goal is to finish six pages by the end of the month. Possibly 7 pages.
The other project I've been working on is my focus for the month; Discworld Mappe by Lyndisfarne Designs.
Here is where it was at the start of Friday:
And here is where I am now:
And here is the entire piece so far:
stitched on 32 count evenweave custom-dyed by Sparklies
I am so pleased that the dye line is in exactly the right spot! It is obviously not a hard line but you can tell the difference between the sea and the sky which is what I wanted.
The next IHSW will be 20th - 22nd April so make sure you note the date in your diary or come and join us in the Facebook Group - IHSW on Facebook. If you don't do Facebook then you can check in on Joysze's Blog - Random Ramblings
Finally, there is still time to sign up for the Biggest Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop I have ever hosted. Simply leave a comment or email and I will add your name to the list. I don't decide on the Mystery Phrase until the last minute so there's always room for more.
