June IHSW Update

Well, it's been a less productive IHSW than I'd hoped it would be. I worked exclusively on H, but there was a lot less progress than I wanted to make. I was out a lot of Saturday for an unplanned visit to DB's house, which I spent several hours of sleeping, and Sunday I was out seeing Despicable Me 2 with my mum and sister - if you haven't seen it yet, I thoroughly recommend it. It's got the same sense of humour that makes Toy Story endearing to both children and adults, whilst somehow manage to be even funnier.

So here's how H is looking now...

H as of June 23rd 2013
It's mostly confetti at this point, but I'm hoping for a page finish this week. My week is fairly busy, with a MAJOR outing planned on Thursday... to Wimbledon! I want to take my stitching with me, but I'm not sure if my embroidery scissors would be allowed... Do any of you know?

In other news, check out Kaye's giveaway and Kat's giveaway. The stitching community is always so generous! 

I'm also still planning my 50 followers giveaway, but I should be putting up a post within the next week or so. Stay tuned!

And just for fun, here's a photo of me recording with DB on Saturday...

Happy stitching!

  1. I did not have a very productive IHSW weekend, either, Heather. But, even a few stitches here and there gets us there, eventually! Love the pic of you singing but I'd love to hear it; that's a great song!

  2. Very cool, Heather - recording! Thanks for posting about my giveaway.

  3. I always say any progress is an accomplishment with a HAED! Keep going, I cannot wait to see more.

  4. Lovely progress on H. I've learned that the parking method is the best for patterns that are confetti crazy. I use it for my HAED projects.

    Glad you enjoyed Despicable Me 2. I actually saw Monsters University the other day and it was adorable.

    Thanks for stopping my blog. :-) I am a new follower of yours.
