IHSW and Catch Up

This past weekend was international hermit and stitch weekend.
Thank you for your kind comments regarding all that’s going on, they meant a lot and I was very touched by them.

I was not so hopeful of getting a lot of stitching done at the moment as I can’t settle my brain to it but was pleased to get the last few hours put in on the 10 hour rotation on the horse picture for Caoimhe for her birthday. This was a new start so this is where it stands after its first 10 rotation.

Horse Picture

I then debated what next to start in the rotation as I was due to replace my own personal project in the rotation, what with having Mr Darcy’s letter completed. I chose to work on Sanctuary of Knowledge my HAED. I am 3 hours into the rotation so far.

Sanctuary of Knowledge – Before

Sanctuary of Knowledge – after 3 hrs

I will finish the 10 hour rotation on Sanctuary and then begin the rotation again on hubbies hunting picture. Lets hope this week sees that happening.

I did start and finish Amanda Grange’s Darcy’s Diary a great easy read with all my favourite characters. I am now nearly finished Georgiana Darcy’s Diary by Anna Elliott and will on Thursday have a book review in the Thursday Book Challenge where this weeks Dishcloth challenge cloth will be shown so check back for that.
Sundays is also YOP updates so you can see what has been happening knitting wise with that, yesterdays post did have some happy feet. 🙂

Happy stitching,

    The horse looks great! I love the fabric you have for your HAED. I don't think that's available in the US.

    Great progress Ruth. I will never be brave enough to do a HAED. However, I bought a couple Disney kits that are on 18ct (yuck) and I will think of them as MY HAED's. What fabric are you stitching the horse on?Linda

  6. Ruth, you made lovely progress on both projects.Take care of yourself!

    I just found your blog today; lovely stitching and knitting! Great start on Sanctuary! I'm stitching this one as well. HAED's are very addictive (and a bit endless, lol). I'm looking forward to seeing your progress and your socks (I've developed a little sock obsession recently).
