IHSW update




I had a Froggy IHSW but I did my stitching and listened to my audio books. The house was wide open and the weather was great. I worked on my Celtic Wedding Sampler and beat off the frogs. Of course when you want something to be the best that is when they attack. I redid parts of the Celtic knot 3 times before getting it right then the scroll work, yep had to redo them both a couple times to get them right before I realized the pattern was wrong for one of them, it had 3 loops instead of two loops so of course they didn't match.  I am back stitching all the knots around the boarder and did the Gaelic saying, yes had to take half of it out since it was off by two stitches. 
I also started a new small sampler from the new Just Cross Stitch just for a change. It just spoke to me for some reason so I just pulled out a piece of fabric from my stash and started working on it. 
Happy Stitching Everyone

Sorry to hear about the frog attack. They seem to be making the rounds again. Despite the frogs, the sampler looks great. I'll have to look for this pattern - not that DSon will be getting married anytime soon, but this would so be his style.
