IHSW Results

Hello all!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend stitching.  Of course I ended up being fairly busy and only managed to stitch on Saturday.  Both Joyce and I planned a SAL with our Chatelaine's.  I actually managed to pull her off Diablo 3!!!It's a miracle!! Yay Joyce!!! She of course did way more than me with her speedy little fingers, yet I did manage to get some stitching/frogging time with Knotgarden.  Good thing I stitched on it cause I would've been in trouble! LOL
Sorry for the dull photo.  It's dull and rainy here today...blech.

I also worked hard trying to finish my Quaker Summer design and the By the Bay freebie and almost got one of them done.  
I think Nina's Thread colour "Old Berry" is the prettiest colour I have used ever.  The photo doesn't do this rich, luscious, make me think of a real berry colour justice at all.  Too lazy to iron today....it's raining what can I say!
Such a cute design isn't it?! I love that sailboat and red house! My hubby really likes it too.  We both dream of having a boat together so we can float off to sea!

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post! I adore red shoes and I think other than black and grey, that's the colour I tend to buy the most for feet...that and purple!! I've yet to wear them though due to the stupid rain.  The forecast this week says sun but I think they are LYING! This morning, before my hubby had to leave for the airport to visit family in Saskatoon, I checked the forecast and Saskatoon will be at 28 degrees today!! The forecast stated it will stay hot for the week, plus the occasional thunderstorm.  I just have to show you this photo from the weather site that a person sent in.  I love the "Land of the Endless Sky" aka Saskatchewan. I wish I could have gone with him :(
Stunning isn't it?!!!

Oh, and who here wants a Titus photo?!?!?! He's such a popular fella.  So glad I have him because I would be mighty lonely here while my darling is in Saskatchewan. 
I see loads of amazing posts on my sidebar that I can't wait to check out! I am a wee bit behind but should catch up this week...hopefully! That and I plan on doing some actual finishing...hopefully....just send that finishing fairy over to me k!!!

Hugs to all from me and sweet "ladylike" Titus!!!

Hello

Found your blog through Random Ramblings blog.

Your projects are lovely and your kitty is adorable!

Samplers, Silks and Linens said...

your summer quaker does look fabulous with that over dyed thread - looks like you had a fun stitchy weekend :)

Bea said...

You did really well this weekend and your projects are lovely. I like the variety.

Julie said...

Nice pieces you have on the go.
The By the Bay one will be nice and colourful if going by her last freebie.

Melissa said...

Oh, man, that Titus is stealing your blog! lol. He's so cute and very photogenic I must say!

That photo is amazing!

Carla said...

You did great or just one day of stitching!

Melissa said...

Yay for getting Joyce to stitch and away from Diablo for a bit :)

Great job on all your projects. The By the Bay freebie is very cute :)

Karen said...

Great work during the weekend! Knotgarden is coming along great, and I did that little BtB chart, too, and gave it to a friend for a house warming gift :)

mdgtjulie said...

You got lots done during your IHSW, Anne. Great job!!! I love the lighthouse in the background most, lol. (It's the one design element you didn't mention!!!) Good job on pulling Joyce into stitching with us this weekend. It's been a while since she got some good stitchy time.

Kathy Ellen said...

Gorgeous stitching on 'Knot Garden', and those rich colours are wonderful!

Nice progress on Quaker Summer and I love that cute little sailboat and red house by the sea design. A friend of mine just finished stitching it too. How dreamy to think of floating off to see with your beloved one day:)

Blessings!

The Maiden said...

So you are the one that tempted joyce out of cross stitch hiding... YEAH!!! Knotgarden looks great and Titus is as amusing as ever!

Carol said...

Looks like you had a very successful IHSW, Anne!! Love that little By the Bay freebie! And I know just what you mean about Nina's Threads--Old Berry is gorgeous and her Blue Jeans color is another winner...

Sorry for all the rain--things are dying and drying up over here. It feels more like September walking across all the crunchy brown leaves that have prematurely fallen!

Love that sky photo from Saskatchewan and little sleepy Titus :)

Joysze said...

Yup, you did the impossible... although 'bullied away' might've bee more appropriate. HAHAHAHA!!!!

You know those side leaves on Knot reminds of tassles. It's like anytime now, I expect to see them start twirling and music starting... ROFL!!!! Looking great, darlin'. No more frogging about this bout, hopefully. :D

That Sask pic is amazing!!! Man.... I'd sit there and just stare.

Awww... Titus. :D

Lois said...

Lots of nice stitching going on! Cute pic of Titus! What a character!

Veronica said...

LOL! Good job on getting Joyce off D3 :P You've made a good start on Knotgarden. Good progress on your WiPs too.

Stunning photo of the sky! I wanna be there too. So have you managed to wear those pretty red shoes?

Ah, love Titus, the fluffball ^.^

Hugs,
Veronica.

Sally said...

Gorgeous stitching Anne. Love your Chatelaine start!

Meari said...

Nice stitching, Anne! Love that photo :) Glad you have Titus to keep you company.

Lynn said...

I haven't had much time for commenting lately but I must tell you how much I've enjoyed the Titus pics. He is one sweet boy!!

Ewa said...

Hahaha congrats on pulling Joyce away! I didn't think that was possible especially when Diablo III was involved.

Gorgeous work on Knotgarden. I hope it doesn't give you any more trouble.

And of course Titus is a star! Just look at that beautiful face! :)

Kasey said...

What amazing progress you've made. Love seeing Chatelaine pix.

Catherine said...

Great stitches!!! Sweet Titus is such a cute companion!

Mangogirl said...

Wonderful stitching.

Valentina said...

Nice stitching and congrats for having pulled Joyce off Diablo 3!
Can't wait to see more of yours Chatelaines, and hopefully next years I'll start my first one!
