IHSW Weekend!

It was International Hermit and Stitch Weekend this weekend I decided that was what I was going to do. Luckily since I managed to catch a lovely cold my family agreed lol. Unfortunately since my brain was obviously not working at full pelt I spent the weekend stitching my Stitched with Love Exchange
exchange piece and obvously I can't show you doh!

At Stitched with Love Exchange we are showing our favourite christmas pieces so I thought I would share mine here too. It is Lizzie Kate's 12 Blessings of Christmas stitched in 2009. I love this piece although I have still to frame it, maybe this year lol.



I have started the first of my four ornaments I want to stitch as gifts, two of which I can show, two of which I can't.

I have three days off this week to get some Christmas shopping done, wish me luck.

Until next time, happy stitching

I've never seen that design before and I love it.
It's a long time since I've stitched any Lizzie Kate designs but I feel like I need to do another one soon.
