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
We've just had an International Hermit & Stitch Weekend where I didn't actually have to work but there was still a lot going on so I didn't quite manage to reach my goal of completing the turtle's head.
Here's where I was on Tuesday for GG:
Progress by end of Friday:
The full piece so far, with one of my little elephant thread holders. These were a cover gift from Cross Stitcher so I've been using them for the main colours.
The other project I've been working on is Mrs Peggotty's Alice and the Flamingo. Here's where I was last IHSW:
And here's where I am now:

The colours are much better in this photo. I've added both arms and a large amount of flamingo! The brown/tan in the centre is her hair around her hairbow. There are lots of colours in the current two pages I am working on. Which makes a nice change after all the pink!
Finally, the next IHSW will be 15th - 17th June 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. If she does a post, she doesn't always do one!
