January 2014 IHSW and a Pic

Happy 2014 everyone!! I hope your year started with a stitchy bang!

Me, I'm glad to be starting the year right by posting our first IHSW sign up of 2014 on time. (Shhhh, let's not talk about the fact that it's almost 2 weeks into the new year and this is the first time you've heard from me, LOL!)

The left and right side borders of Spring Knotgarden are done!!! Yee-haw!!!!



I'll be scrolling up to work on the bottom border next. After that, the top border and finally, beads! Hopefully, these will all be accomplished before March. Why March, you ask? That's because my friend and I are planning a Chatelaine SAL then. She'll be stitching Chinese Garden Mandala and I'll be stitching Serengeti Mandala. Yes, about damn time. ;)

Ok, on to the subject at hand! :D (A gentle reminder, please make sure your URL correctly links to your blog or album.)

Spring is stunning. Good luck for a March finish. Thank you for organising IHSW again, I have a wip set aside only for these weekends so hoping for a finish with IHSW's help.
