March IHSW

This last weekend was IHSW - International Hermit and Stitch Weekend. As per usual, I went into the weekend with a good deal of plans, but unlike usual, I actually finished a lot of them, so I am pretty content!

You've already seen the two finish-finishes I managed in FFG post. Now for actual stitching, I first had the Mumluk SAL to catch up on, as the new part came out last Tuesday. This was done fairly quickly, just a few more motifs down the left side to reach the full height of the design:






Then I worked on Whacky Witches and stitched the black below the lower middle block. Hopefully I can fill in the rest of the design this week!






A while back, my friend Magical announced her new Spring Magical Mystery SAL (you can find all information on it here - come on and join the fun!) and the first pre-stitch came out on Friday, so I took a little time and stitched that up as well:






And through all of this, I continued to work on my Mermaid as well and finally finished her hair! Now I can start working on the rock, which makes up most of the remaining stitches...I'm starting to doubt that this will be done by July, but maybe not too much after!

That looks like successful IHSW to me! Looking forward to seeing your Mystery SAL take shape. :)

Nice progress on all! I bet the mermaid's hair took quite some time to stitch :)

I'm so excited to see Whacky Witches finished! A bit envious that you have the pre-stitch done though :D That mermaid......you know how I feel about her and cannot wait to see the rest of her!

Wow! You were able to do so much in a weekend.

Whacky witches is coming along nicely, what a fun piece.
The mermaid's hair looks beautiful!

A productive weekend indeed. The border on the Witches is wonderful.

It's so much fun to work on it again, I can't believe it took me so long to dig it out again! I'm really happy to be back to all my stitching this week, and very excited for the mystery next weekend.

Thank you :)

Thanks for the point to the SAL. I'm printing the pattern but probably won't get to it anytime soon although I'm loving what I am seeing so far.

That's alright, I still have one more to do from two years ago - I'd be happy to see you stitch it, though :)
