IHSW, no stitching and a giveaway

It was IHSW and I did not even manage a single stitch.  My mother has arrived for a visit and we were busy doing other things so no progress photos for me!

The lack of stitching time  has also turned into lack of commenting time - I have seen most people's progress and it all looks fantastic - I just may not get around to leaving a comment for a while.

There is a lovely giveaway from Kathy of A Stitcher's Heirloom  to be found here , if you are interested.

Happy stitching - I may even get some done!

Framed on Thursday and IHSW

No stitching achieved since last blog!

A new framed finish this time, 4 Calling Birds from Nora Corbett's 12 Day's of Christmas.

It is also IHSW this weekend - see Hermie in the sidebar if you want to find out all about it.  My mother will be here this weekend so I am not sure if I will get much stitching done.

Happy stitching

Framed on Thursday and a WIP

It is Thursday again and that was quick!

An older framed project again this week.  I would have stitched this one in the mid-late 90's.  It is petit point or tent stitch on linen.  The scene is Gold Hill in Shaftesbury (Dorset, UK).  I eventually got to visit Shaftesbury when I lived in Dorset and it was lovely to see the street I had stitched.

And the original

The WIP refers to Baroque Garden and my never-ending quest to catch up.  I have started Part 16 and 17 has just been become available.   Here is my Part 15 and overall progress 

I have not done much in the last week - too many other things to do!

Happy stitching
