Pre IHSW

I'm getting my post in early this weekend so that I can (hopefully) get my head down and get some stitching done for International Hermit and Stitch weekend... if you haven't signed up, there's still time, head on over to Joysze's and put your name down, it's all fun. Anyway, firstly this week I've got an update on Come to the Dark Side, from the lovely Dork Stitch who always gets a lot of love. I swear he's the most popular thing that I've ever stitched. There isn't a massive difference since last time, I've basically started the border, but as it's the weekend I thought I'd bring him home for a photo.

The second update is the lovely Chakra Fae by Linda Ravenscroft. This is my first attempt at tent stitching. When I'm up close I always umm and ahh that the coverage isn't good enough, but when I take a step back to take a picture it looks fine. I'm happy to see a bit more colour in this page (although I've also got some nice mindless 3770 to do), although I'm suddenly starting to realise how big this is going to be when I see the size of her hat!
Have a good International Hermit and Stitch weekend everyone, I'm hoping it'll be at least vaguely productive for me

Hello! I'm sorry to leave a maybe rude comment, but you linked to my Dork Stitch instead of the other one, at www.dorkstitch.com, which is where the Darth Vader chart came from. I have no Star Wars stuff, but he has that one and I think another, too, but am not sure. Regardless of that, your stitching on both projects is coming out beautifully, and I hope it continues to go so well through the weekend!

Nice, Kim. I like your Dark Side. It's coming along. And I love the Chakra Fae. She's gonna be huge, but that's just how I like them, lol. Hope you get lots of progress!!

LOL! I'll come over for a chocolate chip chocolate cookie! Fantastic progress in Chakra Fae. Your coverage looks awesome. Good luck for the IHSW I'll be joining in with you and striving for a finish. xox

I couldn't believe it when I first saw you stitching Darth as I was stitching him too!
I daren't comment at the time as he was a present for Christine and I was worried it'd give the secret away!
He is such a fun stitch!

I recently stitched this one up too, love it! Great work and it's okay to stitch whatever YOU want on IHSW!
