Ohhhhh I LOVE IHSW!!!! I sat and I sat......and to swipe Ms Mouse's turn of phrase....got a serious case of "numb bum syndrome"....but it paid off! A happy dance for me it is !!! I finished "Crafty Cat" !!!! My first finish for 2014 and it's still January!!

This little one will be going on the wall in my craft room.....which is in serious need of attention!! Isn't it frustrating that in order to stitch in peace you need some modicum of organisation.....but in order to have said bit of organisation you need to take time away from your stitching to get organised?? My craft room is in SERIOUS need of some clearing out. I'm all for CHAOS....but ummmm......I can't find anything in the mess!! So, at some stage I'll have to stop stitching and start cleaning...and sorting ....and tossing....and winding threads etc etc etc....
I also made a small start yesterday....for the Smalls SAL.
This little bit of strangeness will become a small needlebook. It's a rather sweet design that should stitch up rather easily. The kit has been in my chaotic craft room for the last 2 years or so....and when I was hunting for something that I could do for the Smalls SAL (which resulted in even more chaos in the Messy Room), I had one of those lightbulb moments and went "AHA!!" It came with a piece of Rustico Aida, which I've dropped for this piece of evenweave that I came across whil looking for something to stitch. I think I may have started it too close to the edge....will have to check this evening when I sit down to some more stitching!
As I started it I realised that with this SAL, at least I can count on 12 finishes minimum for the year! :)
I do hope that your IHSW was as much fun as mine and that the week will be a good one!
