IHSW - September Edition

Finally I did some stitching! I worked a lot on my Mill Hill Buttons and Beads kit, Midnight Farm. I'm glad to get back to stitching for IHSW.

Here's my progress, and I did start it before this weekend, but I got a lot done Friday through Sunday since I had the weekend off.

And earlier this week I finished off Jack-A-Rachnid from the Sept/Oct edition of Just Cross Stitch. I really enjoy that magazine.

So lots of happy stitching time. Plus on Saturday I had our monthly stitching group at my LNS, The Whistling Duck and learned a lot more about finishing ornaments. There's a lot I didn't know, and I hope to show off some of my new knowledge when I finish the spider. And I think I might like to stitch another one too. It was fairly quick.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Happy Stitching,

It's that time again, September Turtle Trot update time. Once again I have yet to stitch on any of the Turtle Trot pieces. While it's true I only recently got my stitching stash moved and opened, I have some other pieces with me I could have been working on.

Whether I want to blame it on work or stress, fatigue, etc. There's all kinds of excuses. Instead, how about I show you something I did finish. At least until I get a beading needle, it's just missing a few beads.

This is Jack-A-Rachnid from the Just Cross Stitch Sept/Oct issue. I love him!

I hope the rest of your Turtle Trot-ers did better!
