November IHSW Report

Helloooooo everyone!!! First of all, welcome to my new followers! *hugs* I hope you enjoy your stay here. Secondly, to my long-suffering followers, thanks for sticking by me through all the gaming and lack of posts. Feel free to kick my a** anytime. ;)

How was your IHSW?? I hope yours went better than mine as I only managed to stitch a few hours on Saturday. I can't wait to check out your blogs!!

(For a list of IHSW'ers please CLICK HERE.)

Friday was hubby's birthday, so we took the day off and went out for brunch and to watch the new Bond movie, Skyfall which was fantastic!!!

Saturday saw the fruition of the fourth butterfly (YAY!!) minus the backstitching (BOO!!!). LOL!

Sunday was cleaning and cooking day. Throw in some Diablo 3 at night, and it's time for the work week. Why do weekends go by so fast and work days crawl by so slowly??!

Next blog post will feature Busch Garden pictures. Till then, have a fantastic week!!!

What's that you say? Picture? What picture?

*giggle* Just kidding!!! Here is what Butterfly Lace looks like right now.

I managed to get one project stitched - though not finished - 6 stitched patterns for Christmas cards. One of them is my own pattern so I added it to my blog for everyone to enjoy :) I wanted to do more but just didn't have the time.

Whey, some stitching! So good to see this, it's so beautiful =)

Karen said...

Beautiful stitching! I thought of you when I saw the Butterfly Tile - but I figured since I caved and got the Dragonfly Tile, I should leave it at that :)

Keebles said...

My first missed IHSW this year! I've gotta finish this stupid redo of the Ribbon Topiary or I may never stitch again! When I hate a project, it makes working on it impossible and tedious. But it looks like everyone else had a good one! Maybe next month I can get back to stitching normal!

Emma/Itzy said...

Your project is looking gorgeous, and at least you did some this month :D hehe.

Oooh Busch Gardens! We are booking our Holiday to Florida next year - I am SO excited! hehehe.

Have a great week, and hopefully your workdays won't crawl by too slowly x

Aww pretty!!! Don't worry Joysze I've discovered the world of online gaming. Now have to share stitching time with killing aliens, men and zombies.

Really really need to win that lottery as something's got to go in my life and I would prefer if it were work!! xox
