IHSW - April

Well I actually managed to remember that it was International Hermit and Stitch Weekend (IHSW) and I managed to get a fair bit of stitching done as I was watching the F1 Grand Prix in Bahrain.  I won't go into the politics of whether it should have taken place, but it was a good race.

I've managed to get a fair bit of stitching done on TT Violet Sometimes and I've decided that instead of rotating, I'm going to stick with it until it's completed....well that's the plan anyway!

I have to apologise for the poor quality photo, I couldn't find the batteries for the camera (OH "tidied" them away) so I had to take the photo with my phone and that camera sucks.

Hope you all managed to get some stitching in and I can't wait to stop by your blogs and check the photo's out!

WIPocalypse - April

Well it's that time again!  There's a new start this month, my first full size HAED, I'll start with that.  It's Endless Dream by Christophe Vacher:

Next up is Henry VIII, which is a kit from DMC.  Quite pleased with how this is coming along, still hoping for it to be finished by June, which I think it fairly realistic as long as I continue making progress on it.  Nearly finished with the wives and after that just the border, backstitch and beading to do:



Lastly, TT Violet Sometimes; I'm pretty happy with the way this is turning out.  I did get a little bored of the black and dark blue so did some of the lighter colours too:



As I made a new start, I didn't get a chance to work on SK Blue Moon, but I am planning to work on that this week so next month there will be an update.

Thanks very much for taking the time to check out my work.  Please feel free to leave a comment, it's always very much appreciated!
