IHSW ~ April 2013

Here we are, already the third weekend of the month again!  This weekend was IHSW and it's time to share some pics...

I forgot to take a before pic, but the picture from the last post was close to where I started.  The darker gray from the side of the wing was further down when I started this weekend. 

And this is where I ended up when I put away my needle tonight.

Page 1 is so close to a finish!  But I don't think it will be able to happen before the end of the month.  I realized that I'm missing two colors...  I have no idea how that happened, I was sure I had them all.  And since it's the last week of tax season I probably won't have a chance to get out and get them until the 1st. 
I hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods, it sure hasn't been a lot here lately!  Yesterday when I left work it was snowing & blowing like crazy, it was so cold!  The sun was shining out today, it ended up being a really nice day, but the forecast is calling for snow next weekend again, it's just crazy!  Stay warm friends :)

TUSAL ~ April 2013

Late last night I realized that I never posted my TUSAL jar this week...  I promise I will be on time for the party one of these days!

It's hard to see much of a difference, I still need to find a different container.  But you'll see from the pic below that there has been some stitchy progress!

It's full blown tax season right now. I've been working every day, and that's likely how it will go for the rest of the month...  I've been trying to get in at least one thread length a day and most days that's been happening.  This picture was taken before last nights stitching, so there's a little more wing detail now too :)  I'm loving working on my first HAED, fingers are crossed that it stays that way!

And here's a little Sheila puppy love for all of you, I love her smile :)

Wishing you all a great Monday!
