IHSW Progress Report

I am a bit late in posting my progress report for the hermit weekend, but better late than never.  The IHSW was very popular this weekend and I hope everyone had a nice time stitching.  I am just catching up with everyones blogs.  Welcome to new followers of my blog too.

I worked on Baroque Garden (Chatelaine) this weekend, and it has been all over-one stitching so it did not grow much in size.  This panel is so much fun! to stitch.  Let's just say I hate frogging over one and there is a counting boo-boo in there that I could not find to rectify.  I have worked around it!  My aim is to do one of the eight over-one panels in this design without a mistake!

Progress before IHSW

and progress after IHSW


I will keep working at it

I also picked up my Jim Wurth ornament from the framers.  The series were designed as ornaments but I have decided to frame them.  I can't find a great spot to photograph it without getting reflections


For Julie (Julie and yes dear) you asked about the size and it is 5" (12.5cm) in diameter.

As always Happy Stitching

Wow, that framed ornament is just stunning. Love it. Framing it with a black background is a fantastic idea.
Love also your progress on Baroque Garden.

Love Baroque, Wendy. It's doubled in size... and that's a huge amount since it's over 1. :D Boo boo? What boo boo? Looks spectacular to me. :

Wow, that is a fantastic frame job on your ornament. Stunning!! :D

That looks like a massive amount of work, especially for one weekend, and it's impossible to see the off-stitch if you don't know the chart, right? It looks great, and I love the ornament, too! The black and red are really eye-catching.

You made a great progress on Baroque. The flower is beautiful. And I think nobody will ever see you worked around a mistake.

Thanks Wendy. It's lovely. I like the way it looks framed. I once framed a bookmark pattern for my dad. It was on twenty eight count, over two, and quite small. So I totally like your framed ornie!! Baroque looks good too. Can't wait to see more progress! Glad you had a good IHSW!!

Oh wow - both of those are really beautiful. I know what you mean about the frogging over one, nightmare.

I was late too on my IHSW but Joyce reassures me we're allowed to be rebels and she won't check us off next month :)

Carol said...
