August IHSW Report

Hi everyone!! How were your IHSWs? I know that things were crazy busy over the weekend in the US with most of the kids going back to school this week.

For the first time in months, I'm posting an IHSW Report on time AND with progress pics! :D The huts from Part 3 are finally done! They're so darn adorable, I can hardly stand it!



Next up will be everything on the left and right of the center. I haven't decided if I'm working on the hippos (R) or zebras (L) first. Hrmm....



Ran out of time today. Will be checking out your IHSW later this week!

IHSW August 2014

EGADS!!!! Late again!!! 'nough said. LOL!

I thought this was the 2nd weekend... till I found out it wasn't... 

I will be working on Serengeti for this month's IHSW. The huts are going slower than intended, but I think it might have something to do with the fact that I haven't been stitching every night, hehehe.


Happy IHSW'ing!!

Serengeti WIPs

Finally!!! I have something to show. :D Work has gotten increasingly busy the last few weeks and I kept running out of time to post after IHSW. Before I knew it, we've hit a new week!

Part two of Serengeti took me longer than anticipated. I hate stitching with black thread. The coverage is so abysmal and I fiddle with it for way longer than I should. Complaints aside, I'm happy to report that Parts 1 and 2 are done! Those one-inch squares in in the corners consist of about twelve colors each! Martina never ceases to amaze me with her mastery of colors. :D





On the Lilac front, thanks everyone (!!!) for all your comments. Y'all make it so much fun to share. :D I've since found the fabric backing for her and she's now situated in my closet with her other pixie friends.




Have to get back to work now. :(
