August IHSW



It was a great progress-filled IHSW this month so I am very happy.

Saturday morning started off with my three daily projects being worked on:


Just Nan - Autumn in the Square
Just Nan - Happy Bluebird
Hetti - Temperature SAL

Then I continued with my Hallowe'en project which is Jardin Prive's Happy Hallowe'en Night.  Stitching one motif per month to tie in with the Hallowe'en Ornie Blog SAL.  This month was Haunted Houses and it was a big one!


Here is the whole piece and a better colour match for the fabric too:

stitched on 32 count Cognac linen

On Sunday I switched to my Donna Kooler Tinies:

stitched on 22 count Hardanger

That might look like a pumpkin, but it's actually a Christmas Teapot!

Next project to share is Alice and the Flamingo by Mrs Peggotty.  Here is what she looked like last IHSW:

And here is where she is now, lots of Flamingo head and neck and beak:

stitched over 1 on 25 count blue evenweave


A few people have said that they don't do Facebook and asked if I could host a link-up for them, so here it is!  Just add your name and the link to your actual IHSW post, not just your blog home page.

Finally, the next IHSW will be 21st - 23rd September 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 here.

No, I'm certain that's a pumpkin, not a Christmas teapot. I like the parked floss around the temperature SAL. It's a good reminder of how crazy the weather has been! Alice looks like she's patiently(?) waiting for her other arm.

Your permitting weekend went perfectly well with lots of progress, didn't it? It must feel great to work on so many different projects.

Julie said...

You were busy, Alice is looking great, loving the JN Autumn in the Garden too.

Lovely progress! I was traveling this month, and while I spent a lot of Sunday inside the hotel, the light was terrible, so not much stitching happened. I'll make up for it in September, though!

I am loving your Halloween! And yes, you fooled me thinking that will be a pumpkin teapot. Yay, the flamingo is showing itself!
