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.

This weekend I focused on to my Bothy Threads 12 Days of Christmas design.  My goal is 3 blocks on this for the year and there's only 3 months to stitch (not stitching Christmas in Dark October!) so I need to get cracking.

Last month I completed all the Olive Green background for Day 2 first and here is where I finished:

I forgot to take a photo at the start of IHSW but here is the current  progress:

stitched on 32 count grey-blue linen

All the fill-in on the 2 is going to be gold metallic!

Today is also the first posting date for Clare's new SAL - The Topsy-Turvy SAL.  This month the theme was New Year.  Unfortunately I haven't got space for a new start but I did stitch on the project I was working on on 1st January - 12 Days of Christmas from Stoney Creek so I am going to see if Clare allows shoe-horns!

Finally the next IHSW will be 15th - 17th 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.
