My most recent blog post was this past Friday & here it is Tuesday! How can this be? I have never let so much time go by without a blog post before! Not only that but I only posted twice in the past week! I'd say I need to see a doctor but I did ... yesterday ... although for some reason the subject of blogging never came up. Go figure.
If the truth be known, the reason I was not visible on my blog this past weekend is that it was the first IHSW (International Hermit & Stitch Weekend) of 2012. I just found out about this event last Friday. The IHSW occurs the third full weekend of every month & the idea is for you to hermit yourself in your stitching chair & stitch. There is no set requirement like you have to stitch so many hours or complete a project or anything like that. You just stitch whatever you want, whenever you want during the weekend. No pressure ... I like that : ) Therefore I hermited myself in my recliner & stitched to my heart's content throughout the weekend. I decided to work on my Santa ornament for the Christmas All Year Round SAL & I made great progress! I only have a few tiny rows to complete & I will be done.
I plan to finish Santa today & then revisit Frosty. I hope he's taken our time apart to think about the stress he caused me last week & that he has decided that his white threads will now lie smoothly & his stitches will start & stop just where they are supposed to : )
