August 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:

And here's the piece right now:

I'm also making 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:

stitched on 22 count white hardanger

I haven't really done a great deal as I have been using that time slot to stitch something else which I will show you next post.

I have made nice progress on my Summer Holiday Daily Stitch project - Just Nan's Summer Night:

stitched on 28 count Jobelan in Dragon Shades from Polstitches

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 20th - 22nd 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.

Nice progress, Jo! That map looks so detailed and a bit difficult to stitch--well done :)

Great progress! Is that a little sea monster?
I always forget taking proper before/after pictures, but I did do some serious crafting this weekend, especially counter was at 7:30 hours!

Wonderful Progress Love Summer nights .

Rachel said...

Judging by the progress on Mrs Peggotty I thought maybe Small Boy had stopped having his baths. I'll look forward to seeing the project you've been stitching on instead (my mind's saying one of your Just Nan's). :)
