 Yes last weekend was IHSW and because of weather conditions interfering with phone, WiFi and computer I did not get to post pre- weekend my plans. Weather wise we were not hit as badly by the storm and heavy rain as other parts of the country.

It was certainly the weekend for sitting by the fire and stitching  and what I did achieve during the weekend was Saturday I worked on one of the pieces for my anniversary give-away, not a robin at this stage but the quote about the robin from the Secret Garden  as seen here-

 Then I picked up again a long neglected piece its my Shepherd's Bush wool gatherer and when I checked back on my blog I found I had to troll all the way back to April last year to find when I stitched it last!! here it is as seen then.

And my progress when  I finished stitching yesterday plan to make a major effort on for the rest of the years IHSW and hopefully finish it by December.

 There is still time to enter my Blog Anniversary give away I will draw it at the end of the month, and now it is back to the fireside and my stitching

Very beautiful quote and love those Ivy leaves. Love all the progress you made on Wool Gatherer - the colors of this piece are so lovely!
Glad you were able to pick this one up again. If I recall the last time you were having a challenge sorting out the greens due to your eyes (way before your recent surgery). WOOHOO!!! love Annette

Happy Blogaversary! The robins are lovely and this is a great little companion piece.

How nice to see an older design back in your rotation too.
