IHSW Progress

I had a very productive weekend-lots of stitching for IHSW-yay! We also cleaned the apartment, and I made maple-walnut fudge (tasted great but turned out ok) and pralines (yum! They were prefect!). I had forgotten how hard it is to stir fudge, and I told hubby I should make fudge more often to build up my arm muscles. The pralines in all their yumminess:


As for the stitching, I worked on Japanese Garden and finished the 6 o'clock rock garden-I turned the picture right side up for easier viewing. I liked the blue/green colors in the rock garden. A pic showing all my progress on Japanese Garden is in the Japanese Garden album on the right. As soon as I am done with the birth record, I will definitely work on this one more.


I finished Pine Tree Inn by Little House Needleworks. Instead of plain cross-stitches for the snowflakes, I added beads (more bling!).


I also worked on the birth record and finished the cat. I like its yellow/coral checked legs. So cute!


I hope everyone had a great weekend, and I look forward to checking out your IHSW progress!
