ISHW a little late post

Happy Blessed Easter to all who celebrate this Holy Season.


What I did on my International Stitch and Hermit Weekend:
I had the opportunity to go with my Husband on one of his business trips, yes I stitched beaded read and sat in the hot tub and did some swimming, it was good, so here are the things I did as far as stitching:


This is the needle roll I did finish the stitching, and will show a picture when  I do the finishing work on all pieces, this is from the Spring Fling that Stitchville USA put on last April with Ellen Chester
Kindred Spirits.



As you can see the top page is wrinkled a little due to the Miss  Puss attacking it, I have such a problem with her she wants to sit on my lap only when I stitch or am at the computer.


I finished putting together the Moriah's Summer Token Hand Fan from Tammy Black Scattered Seed Samplers here is the link: www.scatteredseedsamplers.blogspot.com please give Tammy a visit, she has a very interesting blog, she often talks and shows pictures of different stitching items of years past.


I am making these balls for some ladies and a few are for gifts at a retreat I am going to next week-end, Stitchvilles Spring Fling is going to be Betsy Morgan, I am excited I have never taken a class from her before, I was able to chat with her last year at another retreat but I did not take her class it filled up way to fast.
Some of the beads are larger then the ones I buy from Becka Beads in Maple Lake Minnesota, Becky sells 20mm and I think some of these are either 21 or 22 mm so I had to make adjustments.


This is the moon yesterday morning I was so lucky to be able to get these pictures, the first one was at about 07:00a.m. the second one is about 70:35 the third one is about 70:20 I know they are  out of order I am too lazy to correct them sosorry.




We had snow but only in the bottom and south east part of the state, we left Albert Lea just in time the snow was coming down hard and by the time we got to Stillwater it was just a few flakes here and there, that was Wednesday, temps are expected in the low 50s today yippee.

Today I plan on stitching again on some other parts of the Kindred Spirits project and hope to get it all finished by next week-end.

Happy Blessed Easter to you All
