IHSW September - Show and Tell

Hellooooo Hermitters. :D How were your weekends?? 66 Hermitters this month!!!! WOW!! I'm stunned and ecstatic and can't wait to check out your blogs!!!

I didn't have as hermitty (LOL!!! This is great, I'm making up all kinds of 'hermit' words. Webster would be rolling around in his grave...) a weekend as I'd have liked. *hangs head in shame*

I have discovered that watching Dr. Who is very bad for hermitting. We must've finished 1 1/2 seasons over the weekend. It's too addictive, and David Tennant is just so darn cute! I can't wait for BBC's Season 2 of Sherlock Holmes!

But I digress... I know you guys wanna see pics... of HUNKS!! HAHAHAHA!! Today, I'm going to have to disappoint and show some mermie pics instead. ;) Now... I will say that I had to scroll up to start work on their upper bodies, and was too lazy to unscroll to take a full picture. However, I use a photo-stitch program and I thought it turned out pretty good. Please excuse the fact that they're not lined up 100%.

Before: Sept. 15, 2011

After: Sept. 18, 2011
ETA:
Xeihua is stitching a Mistery piece and can't show it over on her blog cos the recipient will see. So, I'm posting it here. Isn't it pretty? :D She has a new start on her blog for IHSW, so do check it out. :)

Xeihua's WIP: QS Reflections

I'm going to relist the links of September's hermitters here, so it's easier access. Enjoy all the gorgeous pics!!!

Such a beautiful project and great progress. I also didn't have as much time as I would have liked this IHSW to stitch but I think you have done quite a bit !!!

Lesleyanne said...

Sorry to have missed this weekend. Stitching for exchanges so couldn't show anything anyway. Oooh David Tenant - drooling over keyboard. Great progress on the Mermaids.

threadbear said...

Those colours are stunning! I didn't get as much done as I would like either but I was with you all in spirit while I was away from my frame :-)

Vani said...

Mermaids looks great!!! I look forward to your updates!

And yes, Doctor Who, very distracting. David Tennant, whole new lever of distraction, love it!

Hi Joysce. Thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog. I'm feeling a bit better physically but mentally I feel great. :)
Your stitching is superb.

I just started watching Dr. Who on Netflix last week. I'm hooked.

Looking forward to another Hermit weekend.

Thanks so much for hosting IHSW. It was fun seeing everyone's work! Your mermaids are looking great, and I also can't wait for season 2 of Sherlock to come out.

Xeihua (Sara) said...

Thanks for sharing my progress :)
I'm really happy that IHSW is getting so famous that way we will have even more blogs to read (Stalk) eheh.
Love your mermaids and what a great progress you did. I wouldn't have done half if I had Doctor Who to distract me xD

missy-tannenbaum said...

The mermaid project is looking really cool so far, and the fabric that you're using for it is so pretty! The program you spliced it together with looks pretty effective, too.

Xeihua's project seems to be cool so far, too! It looks extremely detailed.

Lissanne said...

YOur mermaids are GORGEOUS!! They are coming along so beautifully. I have never heard of a photo stitch program. What is the name of it?

Dr. Who is one of my favs! Personally I think the new Dr. Who needs to regenerate to being David Tennant again, just saying, lol.

shio said...

the last wekeen was great, thnx so much for organize and hot the ihsw!!
the mermaid is a cool project :D

TammyK said...

Nice progress on the mermaids. I love watching shows in a marathon manner.

Tama said...

Pretty, pretty fish tails!

Veronica said...

Now, now, Joyce. How can your mermaid piccies be disappointments? So pretty... Sigh! I REALLY need to get started on this one.

Hugs,
Veronica.

P.S. I'm waiting for more hunks next post :P

Susan said...

Great progress! David Tennant defines distraction (okay he's not the only one, but one distraction at a time!) So glad to hear that a second season of Sherlock is on it's way - loved the first one. I thought Sherlock would make a wonderfully quirky Doctor Who.

Julie said...

Thanks for leaving a comment :)
Never been a fan of Dr Who.The theme tune and the daleks always had me hiding behind the sofa as a kid.But love Sherlock.

Mermaid is looking good.

Topcho said...

Mermaids are gorgeous! DR who has been on my list for some time, but I want to get over with Dr House and Star Trek.
And so this is Xeihua's MP :) I just commented on her blog for the new start. The MP is beatiful and she's working really hard on it!
