Jan IHSW and Snow!


Well it has been anyways. It won't break any records but when I woke up this morning there were a fresh 4 inches of snow on the ground.

This weekend was PERFECT for hermitting away. Of course the project of choice was Avarice. Page 17 is getting on for halfway through now.

Here's a start pic. the column and a bit is page 18 and the end of another row. I am looking forward to a fast page finish there!!

And at the end of the weekend stitch - in...

As the gems get smaller they get easier but not less confetti if you know what I mean.

I am looking forward to finishing this page. I hope another week and it will be done.

Til the next update

I Knew It Wouldn't Be Long...

Avarice page 16 is DONE!!!

<does a happy dance>

Been a long page., Not particularly difficult but took a long time due to Christmas and losing my bug temporarily.

Thanks for your birthday wishes from my last post. I had a lovely day - spent much of it stitching. I got lots of cards, some money and vouchers so I can stash and of course my beautiful flowers.

New Year! New TUSAL!

Happy New Year everyone!

Kicking off this year's blogging with the first TUSAL of 2013.

Yes, we all made it, the Mayans got it wrong and we have lived to survive another day....

Not done a whole lot of stitching over Christmas, but I have restarted Avarice. I am close to a page finish so I am saving that for another post.

I emptied my TUSAL pot. Although I didn't manage to fill it I did get a good 1/3 of the way up this year. I aim to do better next time!

You can really see the browns and beiges from Avarice.

This year's pot is currently nestled between my birthday flowers. Its my birthday tomorrow (12th Jan)

Just starting out. The blues are from my kit that Yiota kindly sent me last year - I have started Parthenon. Then some Avarice threads after that.

Gorgeous smells coming from my birthday blooms - I wish you all could smell them!

Next time I will update Avarice as I am maybe a couple of day's work away from a page finish.
