IHSW Update

So it was the 3rd weekend of the month which means IHSW or International Hermit Stitch Weekend. I did my best to be completely lazy and do nothing other than stitch. I worked on HAED Hold on to Hope. Here is where I was on her before this weekend...
I had finished the 6th page and was ready to start another page. Here is where I got after the weekend of stitching...
Love how the wing is being finished off. I definitely got a lot done this weekend. Here is the main reason why...
We got a beautiful snow storm. We ended up with about 3.8inches here. I just LOVE how it hung in the trees. So I snuggled under a blanket with my stitching and watched a ton of TV shows off my DVR. Today Fred had another day off work to use up his vacation days. Mom and me went shopping for our Turkey Day meal. We also did some Christmas shopping. We have determined it will probably take several days to open all our gifts haha. Fred and me went out this afternoon and was hoping to get some things taken care of. One of things I want is a new camera. We were shopping and I was so confused on which one was the right one to get....we just took notes and we plan on doing more research. So that didn't go as planned. But oh well at least there is still time before Christmas.

I'm also linking up to the Stitchery Link Party. Pop on over and see what beautiful things have been done this week.

  1. Katie, I just LOVE seeing your updates on Hope. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing your snow pictures! My son was just wishing for a snow day. (We get up to 3 days of snow about once every 3 or 4 years where we are. Last time it snowed, I was at a shop about a 13 minute drive away. About 4 minutes away from home there was no snow. Surrounding areas had a lovely dusting of white, but we had none. My poor kids were bummed. Maybe this year... It's been a while!)

  10. Great progress on Hope. Snow looks lovely, but please don't feel you need to share! Good luck with the camera - there are SO many choices these days and often too many features.

  12. Hope is looking great, it makes a real difference having the complete wing on one side.
