IHSW result

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by, so this weekend was a good stitching weekend for me, although I was a bit lazy on Saturday (only managed to stitch a total of 455 stitches on Saturday afternoon) but then Sunday was only cross-stitching and I made a total of 884 stitches all of them on my Mistery Project and I reached 50% of it complete :)... Back on the tracks to finish it on time and to still have time to make a few more projects until Christmas...

As the MP has to be kept a secret here in the blog I can't share my  progress photo here :(, but because I wanted to share one photo, here you have a picture of my "Going-to-the-City-Centre Stitching" Project, I live 30/40minutes distance (by train or car) from the city centre of Dublin, and I have to go there at least 3 times a week because of work, so I now have a project that I always carry on my bag to stitch while I'm on the train or if my DB drives me there to stitch on the car while we are stuck in traffic.
I've only started this project last week and this is the result of 2 visits to the centre:
The pattern is from the "Le blog de Louison", and I'm stitching it on Aida 18ct with one of the threads I got from Kaye Oxalis, I'm realling enjoying stitching with it Kaye.
In terms of pattern if you like biscornus I really advise you to have a peek at Louison's blog, she makes the most gorgeous patterns for biscornus and she is so nice that she shares them with you without charging anything, the only thing she asks is for a picture if you stitch one (isn't that nice).

Well enough of boring text and back to stitching,

Happy stitches everyone :)
Sara

Hi Sara,

So excited that you are enjoying stitching with the Cottage Garden thread - it is lovely to work with, isn't it? Great progress on the biscornu and thanks for the link to Louison's blog - I will check it out now.
