It's Hermit time again! Yahoo!

Here I was sulking earlier over a really Class-A CRUMMY week, 
when to my glee I happened to check out the blogosphere
and Bonnie so kindly reminded me... it's time for IHSW again!


Oh boy, do I need a nice weekend to crawl into my shell and just 
STITCH STITCH STITCH! 
For info on how YOU TOO can join in, check out Joysze's blog

I'm going to get started PRONTO!
Here's my very modest beginnings of The Prairie Schooler Alphabet series
I'm hoping to finish this first block during my hermitage!

HAPPY STITCHING!

  2. WOW that is one big Alphabet series too! It looks more daunting than the Alphablocks I am doing by CHS and that is my longest running WIP.
    One of my fave PS blocks is the R for Rabbit one.
    Have fun

  14. Beginning looks great Kevin. You always inspire me with your stitching! Beginning, middle or your finishes. I always want to grab my needle up and get crossing! I'm also going to check out the blog.
