JANUARY IHSW RESULTS

Had a great start to my taking part in the International Hermit and Stitch Weekend, with a good effort on Saturday and very pleasing progress. I decided to work on the bands of running stitches in the centre and at that stage was going so well I thought I would get it that part all finished by the end of the weekend.

However pride comes before fall and Sunday was a different story, my body was telling me I had sat too long the day before and so little stitching was achieved, even so I am now back working on this piece that has sat untouched for so long. during the month I will try and finish this section so that at next months IHSW I can start on the outer rows.
Hope everyone else made good progress with their stitching will try and visit later.

That is a lot of progress indeed. It's looking great.

I think you hit a standard stitcher's occupational hazard with that sitting too long. I get more problems trying to do that as I get older. Hope your back is recovering from the marathon!

What a lot of progress you made. Its so easy to sit and stich to long on these weekends and we have to remember to give ourselves breaks, or was that just me ?

Lee, that's awesome progress. I'm so sorry that you were hurting on Sunday. :(

Wonderful progress, Lee--I hope your aches and pains have disappeared by now!! I honestly can't sit and stitch for more than 2 hours at a time--I just get so restless!

Lee, you made a lot of progress! It's lovely! If I sit too long and stitch, I cannot stand upright for a minute or so. Cute bird next to your stitching hoop! Happy stitching!

That's quite a lot of progress indeed!! I do that often too (slowest stitcher that I am) in the hope of stitching as much as possible. And end up feeling drained the next day.
Hope you are feeling better now
