IHSW Review

Hunter was enjoying the beautiful evening tonight
 
I'm a little behind in my IHSW report which was this past weekend.  It was a long weekend, I was off Saturday-Monday.  Which allowed for a lot of stitching time!

I didn't hermit too much, once again as I had stitching friends over Friday-Sunday.  My main focus this past weekend was to finish up an exchange piece, which I did Sunday morning.  Of course I can't share it with you just yet.  Sadly no pictures of this HD just yet.

???
Stitched on: 28ct Antique Green Jazlyn
Stitched with: DMC 75

Sunday afternoon I started working on my ornament for the month of May.  I really should of posted my progress of this piece on Monday night, which by that time I was just over 1/2 way stitched up.  But, I didn't I kept stitching away and look, its now a HD!  Sadly I have no information for this piece as its a printout from a few years ago with no information on it.

Letter D
Rosewood Manor
Stitched on: 14ct Aida
Stitched with: DMC

I have a second HD to share with you, this I stitched up tonight.  Its an initial block, for the friendship quilt I'm having put together.  I found out the other day we needed one more stitched block so an initial block it is.

I took a few other great pictures on the weekend I wanted to share with you.
 Ferns almost all unfurled!

Dwarf Irises have bloomed

I love the name of your cat - Hunter. We have a black cat also. They look like panthers - so hansom. Beautiful red threads. Is it one variegated thread? Oops just looked at it again yes DMC 75 - lol. Looks fantastic. Your blooms are all lovely - Great capture of the Bee:)
