IHSW - June

Hope everyone had a great weekend.  In between the dull ordinary things that take up too much time, I got in some stitching and a little extra fun.

Stitching wise I finished the blue on the Retro Cat down to the top of the chair.  I managed to rein in my excitement and only do 2 rows on top and two on the arm.  Have to pace myself with that bright orange, Ha.

Also, I have a finish to report!  It’s another Dork Stitch sprite, the Black Widow from the Avengers.

Sweet right?!  Another great pattern.  I may have to see that movie yet. J  I did recently get a chance to see The Hunger Games and will have to start on those sprites soon.

The Black Widow had to be done in honor of my other weekend activity.  Denver’s first (judging from the turnout I’d say annual) Comic Con!!  It was held downtown at the convention center so they were really going all out.  The Dealer’s Room was fun to walk around in.  I took a picture of this Tardis that was on display and of Colin Ferguson (Eureka) signing autographs.  I love that show and he’s the reason why. J

The only thing the coming week seems to be promising is heat. Joy. Just have to keep the fan on and my trusty water bottle close at hand.

Happy stitching World.


  1. The colors on the retro cat project are so bright and great! I bought a cat kit that's all colorful like that from Jo-Ann's (though it's not very similar), and I hope it looks half this nice when I have some color blocks done. Also, I'm glad you liked the Black Widow pattern! I thought she was fun to stitch, but may have some sort of bias. ^^; The Denver Comic-Con sounds like it was fun, too!

  2. Retro cat is looking great and congrats on a finish! They always feel so good.

  3. Lovely stitching - love the colours in the retro cat project!
