Why not join in on the fun of the IHSW (International Hermit Stitch Weekend)? I know if you’re like me you’ll 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.
It’s 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 can’t remember the name. So far this is what I have done.
The IHSW couldn’t 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. I’m off for now to make some wonderful little xxs.
