IHSW Kesäkuu 2012 / June 2012


Ennen / Before:



Jälkeen / After:




Kuten näette, tämän kuun IHSW epäonnistui pistelyn osalta lähes täysin. Olen kai liian innoissani päästyäni vihdoinkin Fairy Wishing Wellin mielenkiintoisimpiin kohtiin pistelläkseni mitään muuta. En kuitenkaan antanut itselleni lupaa pistellä muuta kuin tätä Evening in the Parkia, koska olin päättänyt pyhittää IHSW:t sille. Noiden säälittävän vähäisten pistojen lisäksi kuluneena viikonloppuna kului aikaa lukemiseen (Yasmine Galenornin Ghost of a Chance), mutta siitä lisää myöhemmin. Nyt jatkamaan Fairy Wishing Wellin parissa.

As you can see, this month's IHSW was (almost) a total bust for me. I guess I'm too excited about finally getting to the more interesting parts of Fairy Wishing Well to really concentrate on anything else. However, I didn't permit myself to stitch anything besides Evening in the Park this past weekend, for I had decided to reserve my IHSWs to it. So in addition to spending pathetically little time stitching, I read. The book was Yasmine Galenorn's Ghost of a Chance, and it was a very thought-provoking experience for me. So much so in fact that I think it deserves an entry of its own in the near future. But for now, I'm going to work on Fairy Wishing Well. See you soon(ish) with some musings about the book, religion and spirituality, happiness and how to obtain (and keep!) it, and any other topics my mind stumbles onto while I write.

All I can say is if the reason you didn't get much done on Evening is because you were working on Fairy Wishing Well, that's ok by me. ;) Both of these pieces are stunning and I'm loving your updates on them. Great job Heli!

Seems like I wasn't the only one having distractions this weekend... good. LOL (I don't feel so alone now) I love colors of the Evening in the park...they are so pretty together. I went and looked back at your wishing well posts, they are coming along very nicely. I can't wait to hear about this thought provoking book you have gotten yourself into too.

Well you did put some stitches in, so you did stitch and the book is also a good thing for a hermit.

Hugs Yvon.

You may not have gotten as much done as you wanted to, but I think your Evening in the Park looks fabulous!
