Did you have a good IHSW?

Good evening,
Did everyone have a good International Hermit and Stitch Weekend? I'm currently alternating my stitching between doing the confetti stitch on the right side and some nice block stitching on the rest of it. I am rather enjoying her, and tent stitch is lovely, it stitches up so fast.
It's also World Book Night tonight, so I spent my lunch break wandering around the local town giving copies of Small Island by Andrea Levy to random people, I'm most proud of having stopped a policeman and given him a copy! Although I am contemplating using the last few that I have to introduce myself to the people that live in my building. (I've lived here for 3 years, how shameful is it that there are people that I haven't met yet)!

And finally, I have to thank the lovely Milly (who has the nicest blog name that I have ever seen) for nominating me for a Liebster award. I'm afriad I'm wussing out on nominating this time, cos I've lost track of who I've already nominated and I'm running out of interesting facts about myself.

YAY Kim I'm so happy you are workig on Chakra Fae. I promised myself no more HAED BAPS (46 is enough to keep me going for a while LOL) but this chart nearly broke my resolution when it came out. So thank you thank you for choosing to do it so now I can enjoy it vicariously through your beautiful work. It looks amazing so far. More please!!!! xoxo

Chakra fae is looking really good so far. Is this the first time you've tent stitched? I've yet to try it but I am thinking of giving it a go.

Well done on another Liebster award!

Your Stitching looks beautiful!
Great idea to use the books to introduce yourself to your neighbours!

Thanks for the kind comment about my blog name!

Look at all those tiny stitches!!! I know how you're feeling between the confetti and great blocks of colour!! Gets tedious after awhile.

Kim.... it looks fantastic already!!

I feel the same as you.... I hardly know the ppl that live in our building... :S

That's a fantastic idea to alternate between confetti and blocks. Don't be ashamed for not knowing the people in your building. I didn't know anyone at my complex, and I'm kind of glad because the bastards stole my bike (which I then proudly "stole" back).
