IHSW - September Conclusion

I delayed my IHSW post a day so I could show you another finish! Check out our wonderful host Joyce's blog for more info on IHSW and to cheer the other hermitters along. 

I managed to finish all the beading on Rejoice Tree so instead of just a little bit of progress here:

I can show you a finish!

Again, I stitched this 3 over 1 on 14 count Silkweaver's aida with Waterlilies Nefertiti. The trunk is DMC 938 since I ran out of the Waterlilies thread. The beads are Mill Hill gold petites and I love the effect. I made a star with beads instead of buying a star charm. So happy to have another finish!

Another WIP bites the dust, dun, dun, dun, another WIP bites the dust! And Another WIP gone and another WIP gone, another WIP bites the dust! Hey, gonna finish you too! Another WIP bites the dust!

In case you don't know the reference:

Also, if you noticed the unusual look of the first photo, I have a new stand! It was my family's birthday gift to me. It's the Artisan Design Ergo and I'm so happy it works well with my couch. Thank you again Suz for the recommendation! Here's a few more photos for you:

Max is crazy...I don't understand how this is comfortable

Now that I've completed my Solo September piece, and I cannot say how awesome it was to bead with that new stand compared to beading while holding my Qsnaps, I put Spider Banner into the scroll frame attached to the stand. I had intended to pick up Princess and the Dragon, and I might still and try the stand with my Qsnaps like Suz mentioned. 

I hope everyone else had a great weekend too!

Happy Stitching,



  1. Congrats on the awesome finish Tiffany.


  2. Congrats on the beautiful finish !!:) The stand looks sturdy and useful.

  3. Beautiful finish! I like your beaded star, it'sounds perfect. I'm sure your Grandma will love it.
    Your stitching spot looks very cosy.

  4. Fantastic finish, really love how it turned out. Your new frame looks awesome, let me know if it works with the q snaps as that would be a big pro for purchasing.

  5. Congrats on your finish!! Well before the end of September too :)
    I think Max is hinting at something, not sure what :D Hilarious cat!!

  6. Great finish, this Rejoice Tree is lovely, love your WIP bites the dust and the framed cat! xxx

  7. Beautiful finish and I like the beaded star instead of a charm. I really like the look of your new stand - have many hours of happy stitching! All cats are crazy - it's in their DNA.

  8. oooh, I totally forgot about IHSW this past weekend. Oh dear, some months I find it almost impossible to keep up with my blogging - lol! Congrats on your Happy Dance, such a pretty Christmas tree.

  9. wow il telaio professionale, che nbel regalo! Magnifico il tuo ricamo, mi piacciono tanto i colori

  10. Hooray on your finish, it's amazing how the little beads really set off the design and make it sparkle! And extra congrats on your new stand! I have been eyeballing that one too since my current floor stand is very uncomfortable to use for more than an hour.

    Max is suggesting you don't have enough cat hair on your new stand and is plotting ways to remedy that. ;)

  11. Yeah, your Solo piece is finished! And so early. Congratulations. It looks gorgeous.

  12. Rejoice is so pretty! Have fun with your stand. It does sound like it makes stitching/beading easier.

    1. Thank you! It really was easy. I even used that "Invisible" thread and it was no problem.

  13. Rejoice looks fabulous, I like the trunk a different colour, very effective.
    Have fun with the new stand.

  14. I think the trunk looks well with the change and FANTASTIC new stand! Seems like I've been missing a lot!
