December IHSW

I made a special effort to spend time with my wyrd needles for this IHSW weekend. For those who don't know, IHSW stands for International Hermit and Stitch Weekend, and it is a time you give yourself permission to spend as much time as you choose to with your needles.

So this weekend I sewed a pair of pants and worked on Lizzie Kate's Things Unseen Mystery Sampler while watching old Dark Shadows from Netflix. I don't have a before photo, but here is where I left it off last night.

I also gave myself permission to spend a couple of hours reading Anne Bolyn by Evelyn Anthony. I just love historical novels, and the Tudors fascinate me. Next on my reading list is Mists of Avalon.

All in all, it was a very relaxing weekend!

Your stitching looks great. Needles and books - doesn't get much better than that.

Hi, thanks for the comment on the Hallowe'en Ornie Blog. We would love to have another new member.

As you are a "no-reply" commenter, could you email me your email address so I can invite you.

Have you read Mists of Avalon before? If not, then you are in for a real treat. I love Marian Zimmer-Bradley so much!
