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 - IHSW on Facebook.

My first project was Fairy Idyll from Mirabilia:

stitched on 32 count Vinyard Murano from Crafty Kitten

 Then I got a little bit done on the Zodiac signs from Circle Cross, finishing Leo:

and a small start on Virgo:

stitched on 28 count sky blue evenweave from Silkweavers

Taurus from Nora Corbett was the next project:

stitched on 32 count Murano in Taurus from Sparklies

There are a couple of missing stitches around her face and then it's on to beading!

In the evenings I have been working on Turn, Turn, Turn from Noteworthy Needle this month.   I have reached the right hand side where those brown stitches are.  

stitched on 32 count Sea Spray linen from Wichelt

Finally, the next IHSW will be 20th - 22nd 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 by leaving a comment on my post.

It looks like you had a very productive weekend, and a finish too!
I won't be catching up to you any time soon with TTT, yours is looking great.

Great progress! Looks like Turn turn turn won't take too much longer.

Fantastic progress for the weekend. I'm hoping I will be able to really stitch good for the October one. But who knows haha. November I will hubby is going to be gone all weekend.
