May IHSW

Yes we have come to the end of another IHSW (International Hermit Stitch Weekend) and try as I might I didn't get as much stitched as I would have liked but it was very productive. I decided to start something new (as if I really needed too). I know I said before that it is hard to find inexpensive African American charts, however I did find some beautiful African designs that I could afford and here is the first of them. This one is called "Ladies with Baskets" from Hannes Needlecraft the designer is Liz Pasqualini, I am stitching on 28ct Cashel and the color is Meadow Mist. You probably can't see it in the picture but the fabric is a light blue/green. The flosses are all DMC.
I think I will continue on this for a while and I'll let you see how it goes from here. Now to make some more wonderful little xxs. Thanks for stopping by.

Nice design. But it's the needle minder that's caught my eye. It's very pretty. May I ask where you got it?
