IHSW - January 2018 Edition

That's right, IHSW is back in 2018! Check it out or check in on both blog and Facebook form. :)

I actually had a really great IHSW, with 3 finishes! 

Here Comes Treble
stitched 2 over 2 on 28ct white Monaco with WDW Caribbean, Ocean, Chesapeake and Lagoon

Covered Bridge by Mill Hill

I'm so glad to have this one finished! I like these kits, but since I'd meant to finish this for Xmas, it's nice to finally be done. 

February Glows (expurgated!) by Bent Creek

I used my own colours for this one, a Soie Cristale for the dark pink and WDW Camellia for the light pink. The white/cream is another Soie cristale silk I had hanging around. I was going to do cross stitches with the white, but I didn't quite have enough, so I picked it all out and did tent stitch instead. I also managed to lose one snap somewhere, so I'm thinking I'll put a mini S or another button where it's missing. Unless I manage to find one somewhere? I have no idea where to start looking. 

I only stitched the heart as I hope to finish it with felt or something and give it to DD for Valentine's. I started this for the 2018 Stitch Maynia challenge to start something new every month on the 18th. 

And that's all for now! I hope you all had a great IHSW and Happy Stitching!



  1. Congrats on all of the great finishes Tiffany.


  2. You had a hermit finishing weekend! All are looking great- bridge is Colorful, heart is cute and I liked how the finished treble looks:)

  3. Woohoo to a great IHSW and not one... not two... but three finishes! They all look fantastic. The colours in Treble are so soothing. Here's to three more finishes next IHSW - no pressure! :)

  4. Wohoo 3 finishes. What a great IHSW for you. Congrats!!

  5. THREE FINISHES!!!!!!! You go girl!!!!! Love them all but my fave is Covered Bridges. The colors are so alive! <3

  6. 3 finishes .... fantastic IHSW weekend, well done.

  7. Look at you! Finish city! I'm going to have to start doing smaller projects so maybe I can have a finish in less than three years!

  8. Look at you go! Fantastic! These are 3 lovely finishes, too. Beautiful work!

  9. Sono bellissimi, il cuore Bent Creek mi piace tanto!

  10. It's so great to see all the Hermies appearing in my Blog Roll!
    You were definitely a Finishing Machine this weekend too.
    I love the colours in Treble.

  11. Wow, three finishes! That was some serious stitching you did there. It's great to see covered bridge finally finished!
    Aren't those snaps just half of a snap fastener? I'm sure you can find something that matches.

  12. What a great stitchy weekend for you! I love them all of them, especially your Covered Bridge. I think you can find snaps at any craft store with a sewing section? Congrats on all your finishes!

  13. What a great IHSW you had. Congrats on the three finishes , all beautiful. I'm always to heart design but yet to stitch one.

  14. They all look wonderful! I like the blue perf paper for the covered bridge, so much better than brown.

  15. I love the covered bridge, Tiffany. The Mill Hill kits are so nice, aren't they?


Thanks for any comments!
