This weekend was International Hermit and Stitch Weekend (IHSW) which incorporates Friday Night Sew In (FNSI). Both are virtual stitch-ins, which stichers, quilters and other crafty people take part in from all over the world - pretty neat, hey?
You can read about my rather successful (including a Happy Dance) FNSI this month here. And I would have to say that my IHSW was most successful this month with not one more not two more but THREE more Happy Dances).
First up, I teased you all last post with this pic....
Which became this.... The Stitching Bee by LHN
The Stitching Bee, was a kit (except the backing fabric and the button, 'cos I couldn't find the button that came with the kit but once I had FFOed it, there was the button after all but "Too Late", she cried!) which came as part of my A Little help from my friends subscription from The Silver Needle.
Then, I was so inspired by how well the finishing turned out on The Stitching Bee, that I FFOed these two sweet designs.
On the right, "A Spot of Spring" by The Drawn Thread, which I finished stitching in May, 2017! On the left is an unknown design (I do try to always label my designs when I post but sometimes I obviously don't! lol!) but it is still a sweet finish!
All of the fabrics, finishings and trims have come from my stash - phew! Gotta use it up sometime!
I also found some time to put a few stitches into this design from Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Issue 2007. It is Julia Lucas Designs - Deck the Halls.
And some more stitches on the big bear on the first of the two baby quilts I am stitching.

But before I go, I did want to remind you to check out my 1000th Post Giveaway,
Stay safe and well, my dear friends.
