My first IHSW (International Hermit and Stitch Weekend)

A few days ago I came across a blog that talked about the International Hermit and Stitch Weekend.  It happens on the third weekend of the month and you stitch as much or as little as you can or want.  I have been sick over the weekend, but I managed to stitch a lot since I was just sitting at home.  I really enjoyed knowing that I was participating with lots of other stitchers around the world in our favorite hobby. 

So here are some pictures from my stitching weekend.

Glad you had a great IHSW, Dana. Pics looks great!! I love the colors in the PW quilt.

Also, welcome to the wonderful blogging world. Might I suggest that you link an email address to your blogger account. This way, it allows other bloggers to reply to your comments etc. A great way to make new friends. :D Halfway down this post (http://joysze.blogspot.com/2011/10/kitchen-sink-anyone.html) is where you'd find the option. :D

Excellent work for your first IHSW.

Love the heart - I added it to my to-do list just the other day.

I hope you're feeling better today :)
