IHSW January

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

I stitched (of course!), did a little clothes shopping with my mom, and took my new niece's baby sampler and Snowflake Serenade to the framers.

For IHSW, I worked on Moyland Castle. My silks have not arrived yet so there are a lot of random empty spots that will need to be filled in when they do arrive-I can't wait! The castle is coming along, but there are so many different shades of brown, gray, and gray-brown. I will be happy when this section is finished.

I would like to welcome my new followers, and I hope you enjoy my little corner of the universe :) Have a great week, and I look forward to reading everyone's IHSW posts!
