Dec IHSW

This was a busy weekend, so not a whole lot of time for stitching. I knew this would be the case this weekend, and I almost didn't sign up for 'International Hermit and Stitch Weekend (IHSW)', but I'm glad I did, because thankfully I was just about done with one of my projects, so I do have a finish!!!

 
 My progress on the Autumn Saltbox Scriptures from LittleHouse Needleworks as of last Friday...

 
And the finished project!!! :) This was the last in this series that I needed to stitch, so now I need to finally decide on how I want to display these.

I also have another finish to show off, but this isn't technically part of IHSW since I finished it last Thursday, but here it is...

 
This is 'Crowning the Tree' stocking from Blackbird Designs. This chart was a gift from my SIL, Marianne Meyer (of Midnight Stitching), last year for Christmas. I'm hoping I can finish this off into an ornie before Christmas this year.

These were the two I was really hoping to get done before Christmas, and since I did and I have a whole week to spare, I've pulled two more projects that I'm going to put some work into and see if I can get them done as well. After Christmas I will be going back to working really hard on some block for LoveQuilts, but it has been nice to work on a few things for myself:)

The finished piece looks great. Looks like you got a lot done. I know that sometimes a small amount of stitching doesn't look like much, but small block can take hours.
