IHSW - January 2013

This weekend was the first IHSW weekend of 2013 and the first one I've actually been able to hermit and stitch for the whole weekend, mostly due to the snow but it was much appreciated stitchy time nonetheless.

For more information on what the IHSW is all about, give the button in my sidebar a clicky :)

I've been working on an old WIP over the weekend, it's a Teresa Wentzler mini kit called "Above The Clouds", I bought this kit in my teens when dragons were awesome, I still love dragons but it's amazing how my stitchy tastes have changed over the years :)

The colours in the design are gorgeous but the kit included aida fabric and all the fractionals mean it's pretty slow going, if I hadn't already done a chunk of it I'd have restarted on evenweave but hey ho.

Here's my last progress pic:

and here's where I am after the weekend's stitching:

I'm kind of fixated on this one at the moment so I'll carry on with it for a little while, I hope you all had a fab stitchy weekend, looking forward to reading everyone's IHSW posts :D
