IHSW and a finish


This past weekend was the first IHSW of the year, I had a four day weekend and had visions of hours and hours of uninterrupted stitching dancing through my head, it wasn't uninterrupted nor was it hours and hours, but I did get a fair amount of stitching in.


I do have one non-IHSW project, Just Nan's Christmas Elegance was on the frame from last week.

Before
Just Nan's Christmas Elegance
Stitched on 28-count white linen with DMC

 The next two projects are IHSW projects and this one is a finish and my first finish of 2013:

Little House Needleworks' Pine Tree Inn
Stitched on 28-count Silkweaver's opalescent Desert Sky with DMC
On the frame this week is The Drawn Thread's Summer into Autumn I probably jinxed myself by putting the year on this one, but I made such good progress this weekend and have today off that I am hoping to be close to a finish by this evening:

Kudos on your first finish! Love the Drawn Thread...I have had this in my stash for years and seeing yours makes me want to stitch it. May have to add that one to the list!

Your stitching is beautiful especially the Just Nan, she's one of my favourite designers.
