It's that time again... IHSW


Why not join in on the fun of the IHSW (International Hermit Stitch Weekend)?  I know if youre like me youll be stitching this week end anyway. To sign up go to Random Ramblings and join the fun with everybody else.  I have been working on this design for an anniversary gift for my son and daughter-in-law. It is from a May/June 1988 issue of Cross Stitch& Country Crafts.
Its being stitched on 28ct white evenweave with DMC#995 Dk Electric Blue and #413 Dk Pewter Gray. In place of the little pillow with their names on it I will be adding the heart from this design I stitched as a practice for me and the hubby.

 I suck at making heart shape pillows and this will fit the space perfectly.  The heart was freebie on a French blog unfortunately I cant remember the name. So far this is what I have done.
The IHSW couldnt have come at a better time, with the temperatures soaring into the upper 90s and the high humidity, the only thing to do is stay inside where it cool and stitch.  I hope you all join in and stay cool.  Thanks for stopping by and welcome to all my new followers. Im off for now to make some wonderful little xxs.

What a lovely design. I'm sure they'll treasure it. Stitching the heart is a great idea, Minnie. It will be much easier to frame and preserve for a lifetime (and more!).
