It's IHSW Time Again ... & A Blog Recommendation

Happy happy day ... the start of IHSW!!!  I have been waiting for this for a whole month ... lol!  Things have been a bit stressful around here lately so I plan to plant myself in my stitching chair & stitch myself silly this entire weekend with hopefully minimal breaks to cook, eat, & visit the bathroom.  I will be finishing an exchange piece so you won't see a photo of that for a while, but I hope to make a good start on ... & maybe even finish ... another piece or two.  I am nothing if not optimistic   : )

I really need a restful weekend not only because of my ongoing dental & insurance nightmares but yesterday I decided to dig up weeds ... again ... in the foundation beds.  I keep digging them up & spraying them with death spray but they keep returning to mock me.  Every time I do this (I spent 4 hellish sweaty hours on it yesterday) I come inside ... make that hobble inside ... feeling like a gang of thugs took me into an alley & beat me with baseball bats.  It always serves to remind me of why I want to sell this place & move somewhere else.  One of the reasons anyway ... & a darn good one says my bones!

If you have a few minutes I invite you to visit a really nice stitching blog ... In Stitches. Dawn is a very sweet lady who does marvelous stitching & has an adorable pup named Chloe   : ) 

I wish you all a very good day & all my stitching followers a very good IHSW!!!

Oh how I wish I could participate in the IHSW this month. I have too many issues with the new software at work to be able to take the weekend to stitch. Hopefully by next month I will be able to participate.

OMG!!! I am rolling on the floor. You KNOW how I feel about french knots and I have also bought a chart without considering what stitches are in it only to find once the stitches are discovers the chart looses its charm :(
Have a great week!
