IHSW and WIPocalypse August

Good morning everyone, I'm combining my posts again for both IHSW and WIPocalypse.  Although the weekend isn't over I want to post now while my husband and son are still home so when they go out later I can stitch without interruption.  They're off to Beaulieu to look at supercars - not really my thing!

I've mostly been working on Treasure Hunt Bookshelf.  I took Bamboo Fan on holiday with me to Cornwall but we were so busy I didn't get as much done as I thought I would and I haven't picked it up since we've been home.  I think I'll find it easier to get back into doing it on a Tuesday once my son and husband are back at school and we're all in our normal routines.  Here it was last time you saw it.

And here it is now.  I've just done some of the flowers at the bottom.

Here's Treasure Hunt Bookshelf last time.

And here it is now.  The 2nd row is finished and I started on page 19 on 9th August.

I managed to get quite a bit done in the 2nd week of my 2 weeks off work.  Our cat is diabetic and needs twice daily insulin injections.  He was fine for the cat sitters while we were away but had a hypoglycaemic episode the day after we got home and spent 5 days in the animal hospital being stabilised.  So while we were waiting around for vets to phone and each day thinking he might be able to come home we didn't do very much or go very far.  He's fine now and his blood test results are better than they've ever been so we're hoping that continues.

In other news I have finally found the Stitch Maynia group on Facebook.  I've heard it referred to in lots of flosstube videos and I'm now a member.  I've had a quick look through the posts and it certainly seems a very friendly group.  I've joined a couple of SALs for later in the year and am looking forward to seeing everyone's progress.

That's all from me for now, happy stitching!


  1. Glad to hear your kitty is doing well. So upsetting when they get sick. Your stitching is lovely! Bamboo Fan is gorgeous!

  2. Your stitching work is coming along great. Love seeing you each month on the WIPocalypse posts.
    Very glad your kitty is doing better.

  3. Excellent progress on bookshelf and nice work on the fan as well. Glad to hear your cat is doing better and hope it doesn't happen again.

  4. Two beautiful projects and good progress on each one. I'm so glad your kitty is doing well - they can be such a worry.

  5. Beautiful progress I'm glad kitty is better :). I just joined maynia too but I've only looked on my phone so I haven't seen the sals yet
