IHSW wrap-up for January

What with all the errands and what-not, I didn't stitch as much as I had hoped, but I did get in a few more hours than what I normally would have done.  I watched the last LOTR movie while stitching, just to make sure those hobbits managed to throw the ring in.  You have to keep an eye on those hobbits.  Tricksie they are.

Where we started out Friday Evening:


Where I started Saturday Morning:


Where I started Sunday Morning:


And where I finished up Sunday Evening:


I finished the butterfly, back stitched around the butterfly and one of the daisies, rolled the scrolls a wee bit, put in some stems and two leaves for the daisies, and started the last leaf of the lily for this area.  Once I get the lily leaf finished I can finish the back stitching on the other two daisies, the leaves, and add the antennae and legs onto the butterfly.  Then it will be a full roll of the scrolls.

I hope your IHSW was equally productive!

Hugs and Stitches,
Kay
