IHSW!!!

 
I love IHSW, better than sliced bread lol. Especially when I have something to show for my weekend. It wasnt much of hermitting though, cuz there was so much going on. But I did get some good progress on my "Ireland" conversion of LL Celtic Autumn, my "Lammas" LLCeltic conversion, and My Lady's Garden by Mirabilia. Ireland is so big she takes up my biggest Qsnaps *now* so when it comes time to switch her I'll havta make a bigger set for her but for now she's the "tv wip" and lives by the couch. The guys have been saying they like it better when I sit in the tv room with them at night (really I dont like watching tv, except for a couple shows & even then I could walk away form it) so during the Beltane finish they asked if I could do that more instead of stitching in my bedroom. I thought that was sweet so that's my new plan for spending time with them & making progress on wips. However I draw the line at football lol, and that's where the nifty little MP3 comes in so handy cuz I can zone out to it, then everyone's happy ;).
 
 Sat nite I worked on MLG, since it was already set to go, and got "Lammas" on a set of Qs for a travel wip (s) for the next day, as we had a 5 hour drive (one way!) to get some 4H ewes. Rather exciting we'll have some lambs in Feb! So hubby drove the rig there & I drove it home, good chance to break in the new trailer. We got 5 ewes and they gave 2 kittens to our kids as a bargain lol. But they are cute, little tortishell calicos who cuddled all the long way home. I made some good progress on Lammas in the truck, when the roads were smooth. However bumpy roads suck for stitching! And today was farrier day so after dropping kids to school it was another roadtrip to amish country for hoof trims on a couple of the horses. Now all the major stuff is done for a bit! Tonite I hope to just take it easy! Im also praying the new stove comes before Thanksgiving or talk about up crap creek...
 Hope everyone else had an awesome IHSW, I'm off to go see what Y'all have been up to! :)

Oh wow, did you chart the horse yourself, it's amazing and looks so good with the Irish woman.

I've seen so many lovely conversions of these designs but this is totally different!
