I'm not sure if I am losing track of time or what exactly is going on lately. I thought it was IH&SW last weekend but there was no mention of it on the blogs. So I thought maybe I didn't have the date right and it was really this weekend. But once again, no mention of it anywhere on the blogs. So basically, I had 2 IH&SW's this month all by my self and have been carrying on like a crazy fool!!
First, I finished out the alphabets and adjoining borders on Summer at Hollyberry Farm.
Then I added my stripe for the week to One Nation.
Then I totally lost my mind and decided I really needed to start that piece that I borrowed from my friend so I could get it stitched and return her chart. Lovely Scottish reproduction I've wanted to stitch for a while.

Looks huge compared to what I usually stitch on!!

Then, since I had totally lost my mind, I decided I needed to start something else off my bucket list. Not an actual list down on paper yet but I know them when I see them, or when they keep popping up in my head!
This is Giovanni's Alphabet by Tempting Tangles. Just a small start so far but more than I would have gotten done if I was stitching it on the recommended 28 ct over one!
I am stitching this one on 45 ct Lakeside Meadow Rue (I think), over 2, with the called for threads. I have had it kitted for an age and figured now was just as good a time as any to start. Love the colors!!! It is an interesting combination of overdyed cotton and silk.
So, I got 2 new pieces started and what did I do??? Why I went back to the one I REALLY want to be working on, of course! This is where I am on SaHBF. I am loving this stitch and may just work it until its done!!
Hope you're having as much fun with your stitching as I am, Laura
