July's IHSW Report

Hi sweeties!!! How were your IHSWs? I see lots of posts already and am looking forward to spending some time with all that eye candy. CHECK THEM OUT HERE.

On my end, I STITCHED!!! :D

I promised Anne that I'd SAL with her on our Chatelaines for a couple of hours on Saturday (she'd better have stitched on her Knotgarder or there will be trooouuuuble!!! LOL!), and ended up stitching both weekend days.

Remember my yellow blob from yester-months? (Oooh look, I made up a word! :D) Well, it is now starting to resemble a butterfly! :D

Before

After

Another ten or so colors, and this one will be done. :D Man, I've missed stitching...

The butterfly looks so lovely! The floral border is really nice, too- the backstitching looks like it was difficult.

The Crafty Princess said...

Looks amazing!!! So glad you have had a stitchy weekend, sorry I couldn't join you all this IHSW but I had to help my Auntie empty her wine stash. The best way to carry it I found was in my belly. So afterwards I did't want to risk any stitching as I knew it would end up in alot of frogging!!

Melissa said...

Yay! I am so glad you got some stitching done :)

The butterfly is definitely looking like a butterfly. Great job with all that over one stitching :)

Ewa said...

I'm so glad you realized you missed stitching! I hope this means you'll have many more stitchy days to come. My IHSW report is still upcoming - sorry for the delay!

mdgtjulie said...

I've already congratulated Anne on getting you to stitch, but good job!!! D3 has been such a focus lately, lol. Glad you enjoyed it too. I would say pretty butterfly, but it's yellow and brown, and I hate both of them, lol. Great progress though. Grats!!

valerie said...

Ooooo, great progress on your butterfly. It actually looks like one! =) I still need to do my update. All I managed was a little hair. Slow going in the stitching department at the moment!

Veronica said...

Oooh... Happy to hear you've finally picked up your needle ^.^ I can now at least see d butterfly shape. Yays!

Hugs,
Veronica.

Anne said...

Haha! I'm glad I bullied your butt away from D3 for a wee bit! Your blob is blobolicious darlin'!!!

Buggles Blobbles :P

nikkin said...

Welcome back! Grats on the butterfly, looking great...now to convince you to finish it...hehehehe!

rosey175 said...

I'm glad you got bullied into stitching again; maybe if you did a D3 stitch you'd get both fixes at once, ahahaha~ ;D

Mangogirl said...

Great progress almost there!
