IHSW Update

Last weekend was IHSW (International Hermit Stitcher's Weekend).   I'm a little slow in updating.....but I worked on another square of the Stoney Creek Woodland Babies Afgan.  I was hoping to get the square completed.....but this was not the case.   Maybe it will be done today....

Just before the weekend started, I finished the fox square......

Hope everyone had a great weekend and a Great week to come!   Until next time!

The raccoon on the blanket is now done!   Isn't he cute?   Next up is a fox....

I'm also attempting to knit a baby outfit for my Grandson due in August.   DD addore's cows and I found this pattern for a cute cow outfit complete with a hat that has horns.    So far I've only done the back and am about to bind off at the neck.  My first time doing anything like this!
Well that's all I've got for you this week folks!   Hope you have a wonderful week!

Stoney Creek Woodland Babies
I have been busy with my stitching though.   Have continued to work on the Stoney Creek Woodland Babies.  I don't think I will be able to get this done in time for the Baby Shower in April as planned though.  But I am quickly approaching the 1/2 point.   This has been a total joy to stitch thus far!   The space between the bunny and the raccoon (the one I'm working on now) is supposed to be a tree.   I don't like the look of the tree and will repeat one of the animals in it's place.   I have yet to decide which animal I will do, so I have skipped it for now.

Confetti of Hardanger is also moving right along.   Part 13 is complete!  Part 14, the final part, dropped this past weekend and has yet to be done.   I have to say I am sorry to see this one finishing up!  I have really enjoyed this one!   Learned alot along the way!   Hope there will be another SAL on Stitcher's Specialists Yahoo Group as this was a load of fun to do!

Also made progress on PR Mystery SAL!   Part 7 is now complete.   Part 8 was just released on the 1st of March.  I'm also enjoying this one as well!

Does anyone remember the Charity piece I worked on in the fall of 2011?  Where I did one square out of 20 that was to have been ultimately quilted together?  The quilt was to be given to the mother of a dearly beloved internet community stitcher that has passed away suddenly.   Well I'm pleased to say that the quilt was completed.   Arlene from another BB gathered all the cross-stitched pieces and quilted them together.   She did an AWESOME job on it!   Here is a picture of the finished piece!

HEAD Chelsea's Gift
As there was no interest in the Giveaway, there is no winner to announce.   I even allowed the Giveaway to go a week longer than originally planned. Oh well.....  Maybe next time?

Well, that is about all I have for this time my friends!   Have a wonderful day!   Until next time!
