November (& October) IHSW

Hiya, stitchy darlings!!! I'm still alive (YAY!!), work is still crazy (BOO!), there is still not enough time (BOO!), I'm still not stitching (BOO!), dad's doing well (YAY!)...

My stitching mojo is completely gone. I dunno where it is and I'm too tired to even go looking for it. Have any of you seen it, by chance? When I get it back, I told a friend I'd do a quick side project for him. He'd mentioned one day that he'd like to give it to his wife. Said project?



Hopefully, I'll be able to get to it soon. I still have to chart it out and pick out the floss colors.

At least I didn't forget about this month's IHSW. :D I'm not sure if I'm getting any stitching done though as it's hubby's birthday weekend. Also, on the subject of IHSW, are y'all still interested in carrying it forward into next year?

YES! I too have been otherwise engaged but next year I intend to try harder! IHSW keeps on track :)

Fidike said...

Yes! IHSW is fun.

Leonore Winterer said...

Shouldn't IHWS be next weekend? Because 31-2 was no 'full' November weekend?

But I would SO be interested in carrying on next year!

Also, hopw you'll get your mojo mack asap-ish, I miss your pretty updates :)

Suz said...

I don't know whether IHSW should be this weekend or next, but I won't have time to stitch next weekend, so I'll "attend" this weekend :)

I definitely would participate next year.

And LOL to your projects. I just purchased fabric for this a piece that is pretty close to that:

I'm glad you are having it this weekend. Always throws me off with the weird beginning weekend. Please please host again. I love IHSW. Even though I have missed several it's like an old friend you just want there for ya when ya get to come home finally. I'll be joining in this weekend and if you have a 2nd one next weekend I'll try to join that one too haha.

You bet!! I look forward to this every month!! Laura

Keebles said...

I can't imagine life without the IHSW! Even though I practically do it every single weekend anyway, it's still nice to see everyone's hard work!

Shannon Meyer said...

I'd like to continue on with IHSW as well, if you are wanting to:) I do appreciate the work you put into doing this stitch-along!!

valerie said...

I'd like to continue with IHSW even though I've been a bad participant this year. I'm hoping next year slows down so I can stitch more. I'm so happy to hear that your dad's doing well.

Bea said...

Yes, please continue IHSW. I've been a bad participant this year, but I would really miss it.

I'm so glad your dad is doing well! I love hermitting and am so up for another year! It's supposed to rain this weekend so I'm looking forward to some cozy progress.

The Crafty Princess said...

Yay to dad doing well, but oh no to the missing stitching bug. I've got the other problem where I can't stop stitching but life keeps getting in the way...So I will definitely be a part of it all this weekend and I would love to see it continue next year as I love stitching with everyone!

Yes, I really need it to keep my stitching mojo from running away with yours!

rosey175 said...

Yes, I hope IHSW continues! FOREVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.............. I also hope your mojojojo comes back soon. Mine ran away for a year+ but it eventually showed up again. Sometimes you just wear it out~

LOVE the barren field of asterisks. That is awesome.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Well, I missed this post ironically because I was hermitting and stitching and not reading blogs!! So can I have another one this weekend?

By a strange coincidence Christine has just stitched a version of that saying too.

EvalinaMaria said...

Honey, I'm more than interested in next year IHSW. You can just sign me in.
This month I have 2 (TWO) finishes - I think I have your mojo and mine merged together. What is your mailing address? I would like to return your mojo to you.
Evalina, This and that...

Kaisievic said...

yes, please re IHSW for next year and I love that project - surely it has sparked that mojo?

Stitching Noni said...

Great to hear that your Dad is doing well!
I know exactly how you feel... my stitching mojo keeps teasing me with a short appearance and then it runs away again! Work for me has been horrendous since April but I am hoping that things will settle down now and the new year will bring some more and longer appearances of my stitching mojo! Hopefully yours will come back soon too....
Hugs xx

Hi!

That's my pattern, and I have it for sale on Etsy. It's an instant download, and I've already charted it and picked colors for you.

Give me about a week, maybe two, and I'll have kits available, as well, for this pattern.
