IHSW or International Hermit and Stitch Weekend always starts on the third Friday of the month.  It's a chance to lock yourself away and focus on your stitching for the weekend.  You can take part on your blog or via the Facebook page - IHSW on Facebook. This year I am trying something different for IHSW - an A-Z Challenge!  These usually take place in April and people stitch one letter every day except Sunday.  I don't want to swap projects daily so thought I could do 2 or 3 letters per IHSW instead.   May is I and J.   My only I project is Fair ..read more

     Welcome to the May Gifted Gorgeousness link-up. The link-up date continues to be the 15th and I will keep the link-up open until the end of each month so you have plenty of time if you are late posting. The format remains exactly the same, there is a list of rules on the main sign-up page if you want to check what is required but basically anything connected to the word "gift" is allowed, whether it was a gift TO you or is a gift FROM you. My focus piece this month does not have a gifted component at all, so I can't show that.  Some of the Just Nans were gifts so her ..read more

Finally Fully Finishing Fun for May
Serendipitous Stitching

     Hosted by Rachel the Ten Hour Stitcher This SAL is designed to motivate us all to do something with that box of Finished pieces instead of just storing them under the bed.  We will all be linking up on Rachel's blog on or after the 10th of each month (10 Hour Stitcher - 10th of the month). Just one framed piece this month.  I had a very simple black frame in my stash which was the perfect fit for a recent finish - Hocus Pocus Cabinet from The Primitive Hare: Not very exciting, but does the job! Finally, the Just Nan-athon continues.  Here are Day ..read more

May Plans
Serendipitous Stitching

 At the start of the year I made a list of 24 projects I want to stitch this year for my "24 in '24".  The order I stitch them in is going to be determined by the WIPGO Board.  Jessie-Marie calls two numbers each month and those will be the two projects I stitch that month.  One small and one medium. In April, the numbers were 18 and 21.  These related to the Quiet Hour Sampler by La Broderie and A Partridge in a Pear Tree from Cottage Garden Samplings. I finished both of them in record time and then went back to the March choice of The Primitive Hare Hocus Pocus Cabin ..read more

 Here's my monthly Pie for April: My April "focus" piece was A Partridge in a Pear Tree from Cottage Garden Samplings and that only took 12 days for a finish! stitched on 35 count cream linen After that I went back to March's choice determined to finish it.  The Primitive Hare Hocus Pocus Cabinet fell victim to the frog and looked like this at the start of the month: And now it looks like this: stitched on 32 count Vintage Country Mocha linen I spent a lot of days on this because the black was so tedious!  I really didn't want to stitch on it at all some days but ma ..read more

    The Smalls SAL is hosted by Rachel For my Smalls stitching this year, I have chosen 12 smaller designs and numbered them for my WIPGO Board.  Each month one Small will be stitched in the evening timeslot and hopefully finished within the month. In April, the WIPGO number was for a very old chart from 1995 which I have had in my stash for about that length of time so was great to get that one stitched at last! Quiet Hour Sampler by La Broderie stitched on 28 count White linen I used a Jodyri Thread called Aurora Borealis instead of the charted Waterlilies I love ..read more
