August 2014 IHSW

Twisted Band Sampler was the WIP of choice for this weekends stitching.  While the weather was wet as predicted here in Brisbane over the weekend, with the very much needed rain. I didn't managed to get as much stitching time in as I was hoping.

Friday night I ended up crashing in bed at 8pm too tired to stitch,  so Saturday I had grand plans once the housework was done. I did managed to get a few hours done on and off during the afternoon. It is slow going stitching on 32ct black. Then around 5:45pm we lost power for a few hours due to a car hitting a power pole near us. Impossible to stitch on black by torch light. I did consider it quite a few times lol.

Sunday saw more progress and even though I did not get as much done as I had hoped I did managed to finish the 2nd band, completely stitch the 3rd band and start the 4th one.

Now back on to Maggie for the rest of the month. Inching closer and closer to a finish. 

Happy Stitching everyone, 


  1. A sweet design! I like the fact you're stitching it on a dark fabric, it makes the colours a lot more vibrant :)

  2. Hello Debs

    What a great design, the colours really stand out.
    Looking forward to some Maggie updates now.
    Happy stitching (:

  3. The colors are so pretty on the black.

  4. The colours really pop. Black is a bear to stitch on even in great light - can't imagine doing it in bad lighting.

  5. Lovely stitching ... on black! I look forward to seeing Maggie. :D

  6. Your Twisted Band Sampler is looking great. Can't wait to see more! :)
