And July IHSW is History

I figure I had better do my update tonight as I'm opening Sisters tomorrow and all I'll be looking for when I get home after 1 is my nap.

Did get some stitching done although not as much as I had hoped. (Do we ever get as much stitching done as we wish?)

The first piece is a plastic canvas kit. This is before:


And this is where I stopped.



And this was the second piece I worked on - as you can see, I hadn't put in any stitches at all when the weekend started.


And this is the little bit I got done this afternoon. Oh well, a start is a start. It's the very upper left corner.



And this is a new chart that I picked up. I want to do it for a friend who is always muttering about doing in her husband of 30 years - usually about the same time she is planning some special treat!


So, not the most productive of weekends, but at least some stitching was done and I enjoyed myself. Sounds like a win-win to me!

I would say "No, I never get enough stitching done either." :) Great work though, and love that new piece you picked up!

That last design is hilarious! It looks like you made good progress, even though it's never as much as you wish..

Your dog on the canvas is real cute.
OMG, you are stitching a German map? Are you German? This seems to be a rather nice pattern but I like the one that you will do for your friend the most. Wonderful saying, smile!

Your dog looks so cute!! =)

ROFLMAO!! I love the saying of your new chart. Everything looks lovely. I especially love the doggy kit.

Of course it was productive. Every stitch is one more done that you didn't have done before! It looks like you made a lot of progress to me. And on three different projects too. Great job!!! I love the saying on your new chart. It's wonderful!!

You were doing exactly the same during the last IHSW: a lot of backstitching. I don't like backstitching but the result is always wonderful when you see how the details of the design start to take shape. Looks great now, your little dog.
And for the question: No, I don't think we ever stitch as much as we want to. It could always be a little more, lol.

Thanks for the update Bea. That is very interesting!

Hello

Found your blog through Rosemary's blog.

That chart is just great!
Your stitching looks lovely.

Nope. We never do as much as we'd like, and sometimes the finishes take longer than we'd like. But you made some progress, and even got a new one to do later! I love the Germany map. Looking forward to seeing progress on that one, for sure - it is going to look so nice on the fabric you chose!

Anne said...

Well any stitching is progress in my book! Love your new "Man" chart!!

Love everything that I'm seeing!! You have such great projects going.
