IHSW November 2012H



I started this IHSW on Friday afternoon when I started the Celtic Wedding Sampler by Dinky Dyes for my niece Ashlea who is getting married next May.


All I can say about this great pattern is 1/4 and 1/2 stitches are going to be my best friends before its done. They are what is going to make all these Celtic knots pop but they do take a while. 

Here is where I ended on Saturday evening:


And here is where I ended on Sunday afternoon before I went out: 


Those knots take a while and my eyes started to cross so these are going to take a slow and steady pace to get them done right. 
Oh here is a shot of the framed Guest Room Sampler for everyone that wanted to see it framed.  


Happy Stitching Everyone. Happy Holidays and stay safe.

The new pattern looks like it will be a lot of fun as you stitch and see it all come together. And I love your guest room sampler, looks lovely in its frame :)

I know the wedding sampler will be gorgeous and framed sample looks great.

Ohhhhh, that sampler is going to be beautiful when finished. The frame is perfect for Guest Room Sampler - if you ever decide to redecorate your guest room, this would match mine perfectly!!8-)

THAT is going to be a gorgeous sampler! I love knotwork, though I am thankful that Ink Circles' Tanglewood didn't use fractional stitches like all the knotwork from TW I've done :) Lovely framing on your Guest ROom piece!
