March IHSW

First of all, thanks for all of the compliments on Titania. She is currently resting in my drawer of finished pieces but will hopefully someday be up on a yet to be determined wall of my house.

Also, someone asked what fabric I'm stitching Skeleton Crew on- it's Silkweaver's Shadowbrook lugana and I love it. I wanted kind of an old map feel and it's got that and some of the green tones of the recommended fabric too. Very happy with the results on that one.

And one more thing from the comment section- I'll tell you my secret to lots of finishes. I know it looks impressive at the moment (for me at least) but it really and truly is the result of starting a bunch of projects and getting bored with them somewhere between half to three-quarters of the way through:) Problem is, I'm almost out of easily finished projects so enjoy the finishes this year as it's probably going to be a couple boring years until I cycle round again!

Internet is back up and running even faster than before so I will once again be participating in International Hermit and Stitch weekend.

Click, sign up, stitch away the weekend and post progress on Monday. Not sure how much stitching I'll get done this weekend as we're supposed to have some nice weather so outside yard work is on my to-do list but the evenings are free so we'll see. I'll save pics for Monday so at least I'll have the little progress I've made on Skeleton Crew's sail to show if the weather is too nice to come inside. Have a great weekend!

Enjoy your weekend, Sara. Hermitting or otherwise. :D

I spent much of the weekend in the garden, with very little stitching. But it was worth it - so lovely and sunny, I didn't even wear a fleece - and I tend to feel the cold!

Hope you got a little stitching in - Tatiana is truly fabulous. I'd try and finish skeleton crew too - just think about how guilt free you'll feel when you make that new start!
