IHSW - January

So this weekend was the first International Hermit and Stitch Weekend of 2013.  In view of the amount of white stuff we have had, I decided to make the most of it and stay and stitch especially bearing in mind during the week I managed about fifty stitches.  I decided to continue with my QS Literate Dragon and this is how he looks as of tonight.


I am really pleased with my progress although I did deviate slightly to get away from the confetti for a bit of a break.

This week I am going to stitch my first ornament of 2013 and I may start my HAED Mini Ariadne.  I had started the regular Ariadne but after making a huge mistake and whilst unpicking said huge mistake I ripped my material I have decided to restart it but the Mini instead.  Luckily the most of the threads are used in the mini so not a lot of outlay needed.

I hope every one affected by the white stuff stays safe.

Until next time, happy stitching

Love Lesleyanne

Your Literate Dragon looks great! I'm so sorry you tore your fabby and have to start over, but at least you can stitch the mini design instead. Have a great weekend!

That's a bummer about ripping your material taking out stitches. I have had to cut a bunch out of my current project too. But I am sure your fresh start will go much more smoothly :). Good luck !

There is a LOT of work in this design and you're making good progress.
I can imagine that it will be nice to do a small ornament in between.

Great progress! What a terrible shame that you ripped the fabric, I have done that once or twice and it's most annoying.
