November IHSW report

IHSW was all of a sudden upon me and guess what? Yep. I worked on Avarice. I just cannot put her down!!

There has been a fair bit pf progress since my last post. 2 pages and a bit in fact....

The last left side page of heavy confetti gems has been completed, and on page 14 her beautiful hand appeared. Here is a pic at the start of the weekend:

There were around 1200 stitches to finish this page.

And here is an overall after IHSW pic with the first row of page 15 in place. I am LOVING the block stitching on her skirt. At the end of this row there are some more gems but hey, its the payoff for a few easy pages.

I love stitching her. I can't get into rotation with Firefly because she keeps calling me.

So. Life? you ask?

I am trying to increase my fitness levels and I have started running again. I did it years ago, restarted earlier this year but injury forced me to stop until I lost a little weight so I did. I restarted though and I am really pleased with how its going so far.

I want to be a lean, mean stitching machine!

I have a long way to go and I am realistic, but I want to change ME within the next 6 months. I am focused on it and I WILL do it. First goal, 7lbs/3kg before Christmas season starts.

Children are all fantastic, house is great. New car coming soon.. hubs happy about that LOL.

Can you believe next month it will be a year since we moved?!?!?! Time flies.

Til the next update!



  1. Yipee, more Avarice. She is absolutely, totally and completely amazing. You really make me want to start on mine but I have a self imposed new start embargo.

  2. She is really looking so lovely xxx

  3. Your stitching is fantastic! She looks beautiful.

  4. She is looking so beautiful! I too have a goal to lose some serious weight, in the next year I have a holiday which I want to get in shape for and my brothers wedding.

    However, with Christmas and my birthday in the next few weeks I am going to be realistic and hold off to the new year else I will just get disheartened if I don't lose anything :)

  5. She is looking fantastic, I'm not surprised you can't stop!! :-)

  6. That is stunning!!! No wonder it's hard to stop

  7. Avarice looks fantastic. I can understand why you don't want to leave her.

  8. She looks so beautiful =)
    Good luck with your fitness activities, I'm sure you'll make it =) I have to start again, too (didn't do anything for nearly one month due to being ill......)
