Batteries are dead!

So I can't update pics of my TUSAL or Mary Margaret today, but I was able to scan two of my projects for this past week and weekend, and then tomorrow I will post pics.

This past weekend was International Hermit and Stitch weekend. I love the idea and concept of this weekend, because it's almost like a guiltless reason to stitch all weekend, because everyone else on the list is doing it as well.  I LOVE IT!  I didn't get to spend as much time stitching as I would have liked, we had some commitments and a Lacrosse game to go to on Saturday, and sadly I missed a stitching date with Kati & Edit because of them.  But I was with them in spirit! 

I started and finished the First day of Christmas by Prairie Schooler this weekend, so I was thrilled about that.  I am going to love working on these every month, and I think what I'm going to do is I'm going to do them in the IHSW weekends.    This is also so the start of what will be my 2 1/2 sets of 12 Days of Christmas.  I have one full set already by Margaret Sherry and then I have days 1-6 by that I have always meant to go back to but never did.  Maybe next year.  I don't know why it looks so slanted, it's straight on the fabric.  I will just have to take pics of everything when my batteries are recharged

1st day of Christmas by Prairie Schooler - 32 count Mushroom

I also started and worked on Hummingbird & Fuschias.  It's a good start, and I'll be working on that again this week.  See how far I can get with it anyway.  The scan isn't a very good one..sorry.

Talk to you tomorrow!

looking good! I can hardly wait to see your progress on MM and your tusal jar!

I love the PS 12 days of Christmas! I just may have to steal yours once you are done! I have found it for sale but the price is just way to expensive!

That's a great stitching plan for IHSW, Barbi. Partridge looks great and I love the Hummie piece.

Love the PS partridge, Barbi! Every time I see someone stitching these, I ask myself why I haven't done them yet...

And that sweet hummingbird is gorgeous--wonderful detail. Glad you got so much stitching accomplished this weekend :)

Oh just had to say you are an evil enabler- having coveted your Elizabeth I ordered it and am stitching it, now I see Mary Margaret so of course had to have that too and whilst there had to order Molly too. Argh what have you started , but thankyou all the same.
Love the PS 12 days I am doing the Santas .
The hummingbird is delightful but not my thing so I will not be having to get that one lol.
Look forward to next update you are an inspiration sweetie.
