Late IHSW and Early February TUSAL

So I'm a little late to post my update for the IHSW (International Hermit and Stitch Weekend) but I'm making up for it by posting a little early for the February TUSAL!  That should even things in the balance, right?

My IHSW update......I worked on Coral this weekend and was able to almost finish page 2!!  (there's a tiny bit left to complete in the bottom right hand corner!)  Here's some pictures:

Coral Before:

Coral After:



And my early TUSAL for Febuary!

Sitting with my Valentine Sock Monkey :)   I layered on top of what I completed for January....but I'm thinking I'll transfer these to a larger container and start fresh for the next update!

Hope everyone had a great weekend (maybe a longer one for anyone that had Pres' day off too!)  Tomorrow I'll be catching up on everyone's IHSW updates and new TUSAL pics!! 

Though this is a quick update post....I can't contain my excitement for having won 2 blog contests!!   I've never won anything online before, so I'm soooooo excited!   I'll share more info with pictures in my next post!!   Now I have a new piece I'll be adding to my WIPocalpyse!!

Lovely progress. I like the stitching jar. You could dump it or get something and tamp it down.
