Happy IHSW Weekend!

The weekend is here again! :D

I am so happy to say that my overdyed threads arrived yesterday and YES!! they match the others for my Elizabeth Hancock!  And, of course, I had to pick up a couple of new colors... Barn Door and Bunny Honey.  Not sure if it was the colors or the names that sold me on those... maybe both!

So now I can get busy again on Elizabeth Hancock in perfect time since it is the second IHSW ~~International Hermit and Stitch Weekend, and a long one at that for me with the holiday on Monday!  I hope you will be enjoying a long weekend too!  For those of you who may have not heard of IHSW, it is the third weekend of each month to take time to stitch, stitch, stitch!  Just click on the icon in the right border to join in if you like ---->>

I hope you will all join me with a stitchy and hermitting weekend.  Gigi is all ready.... for hermitting anyway!

I also want to thank everyone for their great comments and for my new friends who are following, it is wonderful to be part of this online community.  I am glad to have found you all!

Happy weekend and happy stitching to you all!!  xxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Gigi and Krista. :-)

I joined in this weekend and just posted about mine along with our cat.

I love overdyed for their names too. Of course, the colors never disappoint either...lol.

Hugs from Holland ~
