IHSW post

I had a great weekend of stitching for IHSW!  Saturday I didn't get any stitching done, we took a little road trip with hubby and then went to the Lacrosse game on Saturday night, both were fantastic!  But Friday night I started and finished 2 Turtle Doves by PS!  I love working on these! 

2 Turtle Doves by Prairie Schooler - stitched on 28 ct Mushroom Lugana

Sunday was a great day of stitching as well, and because here in Alberta today was Family Day, we had a long weekend, so I spent an extra afternoon working on Hummingbird as well.  The scan doesn't do it any justice, the colors on this project are so pretty!  I'm afraid my mom is falling in love with this one and I think that she's hinting that she might want one for herself once I'm finished this one...but we'll have to see about that one.  I do think that it's stitching up pretty quickly despite all the detail.

Your second block of 12 Days is darling, Barbi--I really love the color of the mushroom lugana that you're using!

I can see why your mom would want your hummingbird WIP--it is absolutely breathtaking :)

Great progress and a little finish too. I have the PS 12 Days as a UFO. This year, I picked a number of my UFOs to finish off. I have far too many. Seeing yours makes me want to pick these up again.

Hugs from Holland ~

Cute finish on the turtledoves.

I'm not at all surprised your mom wants Hummingbird. It's absolutely gorgeous!
