This week end was Stitch and Bitch for January and the first IHSW for 2012. Jan and Sharliena joined me and as always we got a lot of Stitching and Bitching done, it was just what I needed this week. Because of the snow and ice we had Friday night Tracey didn't get to join us this month but sure hope she makes it next month.
I pulled out one of my WIP's from the 2012 WIPocalypse to work on this weekend. I have been putting off doing the Hardanger on my In Remembrance piece for a few years and really want to get it finished and framed. Once I got started with the correct number 12 cotton instead of the silk it called for it went very very quickly. I finished the 6 main spots and the left side wrapped and doves eyes at the bottom. It is looking great and I hope to get the other side finished this week. Once it has finished it will be my second WIPocalypse finish for 2012.
Here on the left is where I left off in 2010 when I worked on it last, all that was left was the hardanger wrapping, and on the right is where I am today. Can't tell the difference unless you enlarge it so I went ahead and did that for you. I did get the bottom right corner wrapped and 3 doves eyes done. Should be able to get some of it done this week but don't think I will get much done next weekend. I am going down to my sisters and I don't get much stitching done down there but will keep you all posted. Talk to you soon since I will post the picture of my TUSAL jar this week.
