This is my fifth edition of the International Hermit and Stitch Weekend. To get the full details, click here.
I missed the last edition (March) because I completely forgot about it. By the time I remembered and went to sign up, the sign-up process was closed. That’s OK. I remembered this month!
I didn’t get as much stitching done this weekend as I would have liked. We decided to repaint the whole house and got started immediately. Painting the house turned into furniture relocation, hanging cross-stitch projects, and relocating my grandmother’s embroidery, which she gifted to me when I got married.
We’re not finished painting. We’re planning to do some more this weekend (scheduled around the craft show, of course).
Whatever I managed to stitch was done Friday evening in between loads of laundry. Here’s the area that I worked on:
On the bright side of painting and furniture relocation, my Bluebell and Water Lily now have a permanent home.
The walls are actually darker than they show in the picture, so there’s a nice contrast. I love how these turned out and I can’t wait to pick up my Tigerlily from the framer’s this weekend so that I can add to my “pixie wall”.
My grandmother’s embroidery gift was moved from this wall (this was supposed to be a temporary location):
To its intended wall:
A designer suggested I move this piece to this wall. Hubby doesn’t trust it here. I like it. This wall is way too big to be bare. It definitely needed something, and I think this certainly adds drama to an otherwise bare wall.
