Each day is a piece of embroidery
On one side are all the beautiful patterns of life
On the other side are all the tangles and knots
We choose each day which side of the embroidery to live on

..............and I am having a new beginning for International Hermit and Stitch Weekend, the first weekend for the year will be this coming weekend and I have decided to select one piece and stitch it on these weekends only, what will it be ? Finally decided to stitch the Wool Gatherer by Shepherds Bush I did start it some years ago but this time I will stitch it on my favourite 40 count permin linen using DMC  threads as given in the kit. Progress report at the end of the weekend.

I have just finished stitching all four of the little witches by Maja at  The Snowflower Diaries these are freebies and can be found here  they are delightful designs and I must admit the spring witch with the rabbit on her broomstick is my favourite one. I made them up into a cube to hold paper, which may go off with Rachel when she leaves for the new year at varsity, at present she is gathering uop all the things she will need for first year of flatting.

Happy stitching to all  hermits this weekend

Love your little witches finishes. I think the Winter one is my favorite.

The little witches are so cute, and I love what you have done with them. Very clever.
