IHSW and Needlebook

IHSW (International Hermit & Stitch Weekend). Click on left side bar or my 2013 Stitch-A-Longs tab at the top of the page for more information.

I spent my time working on my Needlebook. I finished the outside and inside of the cover (front and back). I have started sewing them together but need to stuff it before closing the top seam.
This was on Friday night.

This was on Sunday night.

Twinkle and coffee?

I went shopping last Tuesday night at my LNS (Stitcher's Place) the Carrie's Creations Twinkle floss arrived. I guess I have no more excuses, I need to get Plaid Trousers finished. I bought 2 skeins just in case, don't want to run out again.

I also received my special order 28ct Coffee Lugana (evenweave) and Santa's Stockings for my Santa's Village. I want to start this project after Plaid Trousers, hopefully at the beginning of May (remember I'm a One At A Time Stitcher so too many projects make me stressed).

I did start a small project to take back and forth to the Stitcher's Club. I am designing a Needlebook cover that I'm stitching in purple (my favourite colour). I will design each page as I go.

I haven't had time to stitch at all this weekend. We spent all day Saturday and this morning putting in the Dri-Core (subfloor) in our basement renovation. The only room left to do is the laundry room. That will be another weekend. It is hard to take out the washer and dryer when I'm doing laundry.
Time to make a cup of tea and sit and stitch.

April's TUSAL

I'm a few days late with my April TUSAL. Not very many ORTS this month ... not very much stitching time either.
