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
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.
