IHSW--March Edition--After

International Hermit and Stitch Weekend:

I finished 12 Houses Sampler from The Drawn Thread:
Twelve Houses Sampler(Drawn Thread) 19March2012
I'm not sure about the chain stitch (on one of the trees), it looks good on the front but the tension is messed up on the back. I redid it a few times and I'm sticking with it as is. Now I need to get it to the framers :) This piece was just what the doctor ordered after my battle with QS Lovers. Speaking of. . .
QS Lovers(revised) 19March2012
I also brought HAED QS Lovers out. I am doing the Revised chart. I'm getting closer to the girl's face, in a week or so I should see how the changes look, so far the chart is exactly the same which is good because her face was the only problem.

In the last month I have started a new stitching project, 12 Houses Sampler from The Drawn Thread. That's the only stitching I have been doing because I have some obligation knitting to get done--God willing I will have pictures of THAT to share for next month :)

This is where I am at in 12 Houses:

5 Pet Peeves

1. Mothers who dress like street walkers when they pick their kids up from school--thigh high boots, black shorts, black tights, leather jacket--I'm not kidding and said mother wears this ensemble frequently--although looking at the description maybe she's a pirate, or a pirate wench?

2. People that refuse to drive the speed limit, especially in the left lane.

3. People that HAVE to get around you on the highway only to pull in front of you and slow down by 20 miles per hour.

4. Men in the grocery store, okay this may be a generalization and my apologies to any man who knows what they are doing there. If you don't know what you're looking for, either ask or get out of the way.

5. People who are ordering food and have to ask about EVERYTHING, then keep changing their mind, then order something really basic after playing 20 questions and holding up a large line of customers who probably know exactly what they want.

Okay, just had to get those off my chest.
