IHSW February 2013

This was a great IHSW for me and my Ipod loaded with a few audio books. I am playing catch up on my J.D. Robb's, Eve Dallas series. So this weekend I got 1 and a 1/2 books listened too and a lot of stitching done, and hung my two traveling pattern pieces on my cross stitch wall. The two small framed pieces look great in their new home. 

 I worked on Mary Wigham's last week and most of Friday and for a few hours on Saturday.

Than I worked on the Celtic Wedding Sampler and was able to finish the rest of the boarder. I am going to save the back stitching (everything is backstitched) till the end.

You did get a lot done. The border on the Celtic piece is beautiful.
It must be nice to have a nice large wall like that to fill with your cross stitch. It all looks so nice hanging there.
