My First IHSW Went Great!

I actually got a lot of stitching done this weekend for the International Hermit and Stitchers Weekend!  I am pretty happy with the amount of progress I made on both pieces.  I honestly could have done a little more but my arm was killing me by Sunday evening.  We done some major trash hauling Saturday morning and my arm was already sore from throwing trash out of the back of the pickup and stitching was just adding to it!  LOL  That is ok, so on to my progress pics!

I also finished stitching the little ornament last week and forgot to share a pic of it on Friday.  I did not stitch the words, since I am not French or the border on it simply because it is going to be an ornament for the Christmas Tree and that would have made it too large for what I am wanting.
I LOVE the way it turned out, this is such a pretty piece.  The church is my favorite part of it!  Once I actually get it finished into an ornie, I will share again!

Also, I am up to over 170 followers and that is just awesome!!!!!!  I am so excited about that!  Even though I just had a giveaway not long ago, I decided that once I hit 200 followers I am going to do another giveaway.  I have a lot of charts and some other goodies that I really need to go through and I can not think of anything better to do with them than offer them in a giveaway!!!!  

Ok, that is it for this time around.  Hope everyone has a wonderful and Blessed week!!

I love the names of God piece - I've seen it done before but not with such striking color. It's so vibrant in red! The church and cross are also lovely. It must have been a nice change from hauling trash - talk about the flip side of life!

Your projects look really cool! Are you switching flosses or using a variegated for the red stitchings? Either way, it's a really nice effect.

International Hermit and Stitchers Weekend? I've never heard of it but I'm planning a batcave retreat next weekend while I'm home alone. Hopefully, I'll be productive too.

Great work, by the way!
