IHSW and a little more

A lot of activities this past week. First Friday was the beginning of the IHSW (to see who else was hermitting), second my monthly “Stitch & Bitch” and last but not least the beginning of my “Summer SWAT”. Also last week I had a slight mishap with a piece for a needle book exchange  I think I mentioned before, so I used the weekend to re-stitch the whole thing and I can’t show you what happened until the exchange next month, but I promise to share the whole terrible mess. I also started something new by Waxing Moon Designs, called “Stitching Mends the Soul”.

So this is my IHSW report and I will keep working on this one for the rest of the SWAT.  I did finish the anniversary sampler and have everything to finish it but need to gather my nerve before any cutting on this one after my last attempt at finishing a gift.

Well I can’t finish anything if I don’t make some little xxs. See you next time.
