For those of you who do not know what I am talking about......
"International Hermit and Stitch Weekend takes place every 3rd full weekend of each month, from Friday till Sunday. In our very busy and hectic lives, IHSW is a chance for us to squirrel some time away for ourselves and "Hermit and Stitch." It is a time set aside to take care of us and our love for stitching."
It is hosted by the lovely Joysze from Random Ramblings and you can see who else signed up here.
So, why was it such a great success for me?
Well, I finally finished both of the designs for the round boxes for my Swapaway Gifts! You know the ones, I was having trouble working out what to do? You can read about that here.
I am so thrilled with how they turned out:
Modified Tall Sheep
Shepherd's Bush Designs
Stitched on 28 Ct Country French Linen - Spring Meadow
Using a variety of speciality and DMC threads.
I also found time on Sunday to stitch some more on my Sunday SAL with my dear Linda, Santa's 12 Days of Christmas. Day Nine is one more Sunday away from being finished, I think!
Lastly, I have had some success in the garden, too, as my pansies have started flowering. I just love sweet, little pansies.
So, I hope that your weekend was as productive as mine.
Love to all and stitchy hugs,
