2013's First IHSW

Hello darlings!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Here's to a very healthy and prosperous 2013 for us all! :D

I'm still alive, and have even done a wee bit of stitching. It's amazing how nothing much gets done on vacation, forced or not, but time still speeds by...

I'm sorry this IHSW sign up post is late. I spent the entire day at hubby's new office helping them put things in order and so this will be a really quick post from the iPad.

I hope to do some catch up posts later this week, but before then, have you guys SEEN the new Zen Garden Chatelaine?? *scream* I HAVE to have this one. Hubby reminds me that I need to get back in gear with Serengeti... :S

Here's to our first IHSW of the year!! May it bring us many stitches!

I have 2 Japanese cross stitch books from the 70s set to arrive in the mail for me by this weekend and am looking forward to doing some brightly colored and slightly confusing stitching! Happy IHSW!

I did see the new Zen Garden Chatelaine, and I love it. I do believe I will be purchasing this one. After all, my birthday is in March, and it will make a great present:)

Welcome to 2013 =)

I'll do my best to join. But since it is my birthday on Sunday we are going to have a party here on Saturday. I don't know how much time will be there for stitching ;-)

tiffstitch said...

Yay! so glad you're doing this again. And with Zen Garden, the question is Buddha or no Buddha? :)

busyhands said...

I"m looking forward to it... but I won't be alone I'll be with stitchy friends!

lesli said...

Girl! I WANNA DO THAT CHATELAINE too! but I have no idea how her online classes work....do you pay for the chart and you have to finish a portion before you get the next? Or is this the only way you can get this chart? Any info you have, please share! :)

Babs said...

Going to try and work on the stupid train pattern I don't like, but had to be finished two years ago, lol.

Lovely to see you back in the world of blogging :)

Of course I'm in! And I'm starting early this weekend. I woke up today with a sore throat so I'm staying home and stitching.

Christine said...

This is my first ISHW, and I am thrilled.
Oh, I did see the Zen Garden last night and it is lovely, it's at the top of my list. :D

I'm incredibly late signing up this month, but I'm in... got a new project that I want to make some progress on... and I'm loving the new Chatelaine... I think 2013 might will be the year when I finally cave and buy one... or at least start saving up for one... so pretty!

Meg said...
