December 2013 IHSW was a success!!

The International Hermit Stitching Weekend was a great success!! I stitched everyday during the weekend, and by Sunday I finished stitching my Santa's Village.

Then I did some sewing. First I made a bell pull with The Stitcher's 12 Days of Christmas by Sue Hillis (stitched in 2012).

Santa's Village was sewn into a quilted wall hanging. I still need to sew the buttons on, and sew up the right hand side, but other than that it is complete.

I'm only using 7 of the 12 buttons. I wanted to use the chocolate chip cookie but it was too big (I stitched over 2 on 28ct).

Not sure what I will stitch on next, but I know it will be small. :)
