September IHSW

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.

Here's where I was on Friday morning:

Here's the part I worked on this weekend:

I completed the piece of paper with the dedication, added some more border and land and then stitched the flying eyeball which is adorable and so much fun to stitch.

The rest of this week will be given over to the mainland.

I also stitched a few rows on the Mirabilia 25th Anniversary Cameo.  Here's where that was on Friday:

And here she is now:

stitched on random 28 count hand-dyed evenweave

I'm also making slow but steady progress on my evening piece.  This is the project I stitch while The Small Boy is in the bath.  The current project is The Queen of Hearts by Mrs Peggotty.  Here's where she was last IHSW:

And here is where she is now:

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 18th - 20th October 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.

Flying eyeball! What a great image.

Beautiful work on your WIPs! That flying eye is just adorable as any flying eye should be called haha. I had ideas about joining in on IHSW and then life thought otherwise. That's okay maybe next time.

Linda said...

Awesome progress Jo. I haven't touched queen in many months. To obsessed with the stained glass pieces.


Pamela said...

You've made good progress on these projects!

Great progress. Love the flying eyeball!

Rachel said...

Congratulations on achieving your stitching goals for the weekend. Not being into Discworld at all, I have to admit the flying eyeball could almost be mistaken for a Harry Potter Snitch. Ooops, I hope I haven't spoilt it for you! :)

Great progress on everything! I love the eyeball, it's adorable and much less creepy than I imagined.
Again, I don't really have a dedicated IHSW post, but I'm linking up my small weekend victory nonetheless :)

I love the way the paper looks on the Mappe, it really looks like it was placed on top of it!
The silhouette is coming along beautifully and I'm thinking you won't need to stitch the background.
I think The Small Boy needs an extended bath time so you can stitch more!
