IHSW - September Conclusion

Another IHSW has gone past and I hope you all had a great, stitchy weekend. I worked Saturday again, as I do most third weekends of the month, but I still had some stitching time.

I managed to finish April on the Song of the Weather SAL:
Caron Watercolours and Wildflowers in Pale Lilac

So that's 4/12 months complete. Hardanger is interesting, but the wrapping is really hard on my wrists. I'm still much more comfortable with cross-stitching.

I even dug out a really old WIP from 2012 to work on:

And I've managed quite a bit. I'm tempted to keep going until I finish since it's very nearly there. Possibly another week of nightly stitching will get this one finished. The top right only needs back stitch so you can tell it's a poinsettia and the bottom left one needs finishing. There is a bit of work to be done in the bottom right corner as well, but a lot of it is half stitch, so it goes fairly quickly. 

It was a little too warm for Princess and the Dragon until Sunday, but my wrists were sore from the hardanger and 28 count 1 over 1 is a bit of a challenge on the wrists sometimes too. This 16 count is a little easier.

Happy Stitching,



  1. I know I couldn't stop working on this wip when it's so close to the finish ;)))

  2. Gorgeous work on both pieces. Congrats on the finish! Sometimes it's nice to pick up an "easy" piece. Looks beautiful. Good luck with finishing it up.

  3. Congrats on the finish!! I love the colorful new-old WIP:)
