IHSW or International Hermit and Stitch Weekend always starts on the third Friday of the month. It's a chance to lock yourself away and focus on your stitching for the weekend. You can take part on your blog or via the Facebook page. Links at the bottom of this post.
Once again I was working on my Discworld Mappe. I am determined to get 2 weeks every month on this project.
Here's where I was on the 15th:
Here's the part I worked on this weekend:
And here's the piece right now:
The little banner says "Circumfence"
The Circumfence is a sturdy wood-stakes-and-ropes barrier running almost a third of the Rim of the Disc, constructed by the island nation Krull. Hapless ships and vessels continually get washed toward the Edge, and by means of the Circumfence, Krullians are able to salvage many useful things; for example, many houses are constructed from parts of ships. In the old days, people who ran into the Circumfence would get captured by the Krullian navies and serve as slaves or even sacrificial victims (see The Colour of Magic). Nowadays, Krullians rescue these people and charge them heavy salvage rates, a much more peaceful but just as profitable use of the barrier.
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.
The next IHSW will be 21st - 23rd 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 here.
Finally, Stitch Maynia! For Maynia this year I am stitching on the same projects I started last May. I started one Just Nan small per day so this year I am stitching one strand on each project on their relevant day. Here are the projects for Days 16 to 20:
