IHSW February

 Well, I managed a little stitching for the weekend.

What is International Hermit and Stitch Weekend?  It is the 3rd weekend of the month where you TRY to get a little more stitching time. I failed miserably. To be honest, I was feeling rather blue. I had just lost two dear friends to COVID and was mourning their passing. I do know they are in heaven with their Savior Jesus, and so my mourning is more for my loss. How I will miss my morning Marco Polos with my dear friend!


Anyway, that is why I didn't get as much done as I had hoped.

My #100dayproject-





 I did not like the yellow that was called for:

So I ripped:
And ended here:

And last, but not least Agnus Dei:

It is beginning to warm up here-today it will be above 32 F! Yipee! So my dear husband and I have been walking:

I am so looking forward to spring!

Hi Beth: Your Octopus is adorable, your Agnus Dei is a stunning piece, love the color change in the flower.
I am so sorry for your loss, it will take time to get used to them not being around but your Faith in God will help.
Have a beautiful day

I too enjoyed a long walk today. The sun was amazing!
It's been a tough couple of months. Hugs.

I'm so sorry to hear about your friends, but comforting to know where they are.
Nice progress on your stitching, the Agnus Dei is beautiful so far.
It's finally warming up here this week to melt all the snow, bring on spring!

I'm so sorry for your loss, we all miss our friends right now but at least most of us will be able to meet up when this is over. But there will be so many spaces around the tables.
The Agnus Dei is stunning in that colour scheme.

I'm very sorry for your loss and hope your stitching was some small amount of comfort. Love the octopus!
