Which stands for….International Hermit and Stitch Weekend (I hope I’ve got that right) which is run by Joysze and occurs on the third weekend of every month. For full details and information on how to join in take a look at her blog Random Ramblings.

This is the first time I’ve participated and am slightly late posting. Although I didn’t get to stitch as much as I wanted I decided to concentrate on my new SAL with Shio which we started on the 15th November – Pear Orchard Farm. I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did and ended up completing a quarter of the chart. As it is quite an easy stitch I’ve decided to stitch on this piece on my IHSW. Here is my first progress pic

End of another SAL October 17, 2011

I missed posting my Part 5 progress at the end of last month but I can show Part 6 which brings a sad end to this autumn Alphabet SAL. It’s been a very easy and enjoyable stitch and I would like to thank Shio for organising it. 🙂

Good news is that a Happy Dance means a new start and Shio is organising another SAL very soon. I’ll put an update here once a design has been chosen and if you want to join in hop aboard. A new start is always exciting and the onset of darker evenings usually means more stitching gets done at this time of year.

Although I’ve been my usual quiet self on the blogging front I have done some stitching in the last few weeks and when I finished the SAL I treated myself to a new start. Claire’s daughter completed this a while ago and I had been following her progress. When I showed it to Ian he immediately asked me to stitch it as it reminds him of our dogs!. I know this is going to take me quite a while to stitch but the end result will be well worth it. I’ve only just started so very little progress.  To see what I’m stitching take a look and she what Lindashee has done with her finish – what a great idea – I love it!!

I’ve almost finished my Sampler Aux Chats which started as a SAL but has sort of fizzled out.  I ran out of thread at the weekend but have bought a couple of skeins today and will make my big reveal hopefully at the end of the week.

As I am on the subject of SAL’s I was invited by Shio to join International Hermit and Stitch Weekend which is being run by Joysze.

This takes place every third weekend of every month – just leave  a
link to your blog on her post and be ready to join in with the November
stitch.  I’ve just signed up and am number 84 and  recognise quite a few stitchers on the list.  Let’s see how long it takes to reach 100 🙂
