IHSW report

Well I didn't start anything new for this IHSW, I decided to try to finish the stitching on Joan Elliott's Mystery SAL. I almost made it backstitching on the dragon and beading to do.
Once the beading is done I have one more finish left on my list for this month, I guess I need to think about what will be on my list for June.  Well got to stitch if I want to finish. xxs

Late to the party again...

As usual I am late with my post but at least I'm here. Yesterday was Gifted Gorgeousness hosted by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching. This is where you stitch on something (chart, fabric, floss, etc) either gifted to you or you are gifting it to someone else. If you need more info than that click on the beautiful button on my right sidebar. I have been working on a project that I just realized fits into this SAL, it is "Namasta" from Ink Circles. It is to be gifted to my daughter as part of a yoga mat bag that I also handmade. Here is the final product.
And here comes Bud to do his quality control check.
Yesterday was also the beginning of IHSW (International Hermit and Stitch Weekend) there's a button for this too. I will be participating as always. There is one more SAL I am participating that begins today and it's called a SWAT (Stitch-Week-A-Thon) it's from a group of very old friends on Facebook so I don't have a button but believe me I'm stitching with my friends.
Just an small update on my to-do list for the month of May- 5 of the 7 items are finished and checked off. I'll save those pictures for next time. Got to go make those little xxs.

Wipocalypse May 2015

I am glad to announce that I will post my Wipocalypse post on time this month. Yay for me! Okay what updates haven't I shown you? Well there is Namaste.
Only one more symbol to go.  And then there is Moon Eclipse
the latest part in The Primitive Hare's year long SAL "On Wednesday We Stitch Black". There is also the little May fairy from Lucie Heaton's SAL.
I just love these little cuties, they stitch up so fast.  Last but not least is Tranquil Sea which in one evening went from this
to this 

I am trying to finish up the frame so I can get to the really fun stuff. Well as of writing this post we didn't have a special topic so I think I'll just lay out my plans for the next month. Maybe if I put them in writing there's a better chance of me getting them all done. 
Assemble a birthday card for an exchange, mount and frame a sampler for my daughter, finish stitching and assemble the yoga matt bag for my daughter, mount the May calendar girl, stitch the last face in the Joan Elliott Mystery SAL, do the beading on it and on my Around the World in 80 Stitches, and if I have time I can  attach the head to Idelia Mae and frame her too.  Everybody wish me luck.  As I complete each item I'll share a picture. Thank you all for visiting and I've got to go and make some wonderful little xxs.
