International Hermit And Stitch Weekend - August

Well another IHSW has come to a close. I didn't get as much stitching done this weekend as I would have liked, as we had a big family party at our new home as a housewarming/meet my brother's girlfriend event that was a ton of fun, but it really ate into my stitching time! I do feel like the weekend was a success though, as I was able to finish Birdhouse Neighborhood as I mentioned in my last post. Thank you to everyone for the lovely comments about it - I'm rather proud of the piece and will be eager to see it in the enter quilt!

I ordered the fabric and threads I still needed for Flames of Desire. Once those come in, I'll organize and add that to my rotation! I've also decided on a personal rule that I will not begin another HAED design until I'm finished with page one of whatever design I've started most recently. Doesn't mean I won't buy more charts, it just means I'll have to make some progress on an HAED before I move to the next one!

With Birdhouse Neighborhood done, I got back to Italian Vista to start my rotations again. I've decided that I'm going to change which project I am working on during the week every Sunday so that all of my WIPs get into a good rotation. Any projects I do for WOCS will just be worked in as needed.

So I didn't make a ton of progress on Italian Vista tonight just because I was worn out from the party, but I did put a few stitches in! Sorry for the funny picture angle
As of 8/19/12
One of my goals this week is to find my better camera rather than just my cell phone camera so I can get better pictures! Anyway, I'll be happy to see where Italian Vista grows to over the next week! Stay tuned for the progress!

I hope everyone had a wonderful week! It's the last week of summer vacation in our house, and we plan to enjoy it!

Until next time!
