Anyway enough chatting here are some photos
Tribal Butterfly....not sure if I posted the final finish so I will just post it again.
I definitely wanted to post sooner then this but when you are on a roll stitching you don't stop, you ride the wave.
I am working on Santa's Village by CCN, I am currently working on house #7, if all goes as planned I hope to be finished tonight or at the latest Tuesday afternoon it all depends on how busy I get.
I had hoped to be farther along then I currently am on this project but for some reason the change in the weather in October/November has thrown me for a loop and I am spending more time sleeping on the train then anything else........no reading or stitch is geting done, it's just weird.
Anyway, I will post photos of house #4 - 7 when I take the project out of the hoop to move it over for house #8.
Thanks for listening.
I have 687 stitches left to complete Found by HAED.
I was pretty excited to be on the verge of finishing it this past weekend. Unfortunately it was really muggy/hot in British Columbia's lower mainland on Sunday that after I finished my grocery shoppjng I was hit with a nasty migraine, so there was no way I could even look at the pattern.
I am taking a break from the design for a few days so I can do some craft organizing and some long over due tasks. My goal is to get back into Found on Thursday and finish it completely by Saturday.
I have a couple projects to take it's place that just need a little love and then they can be finished and then I want to launch myself into working on Egyptian Garden by Chatelaine. I worked on this designs a month back when I needed a break on Found and I just flew through the section I worked on and I was reminded how much I really like this design. I know its probably a bad idea to work on back to back large projects but that is why I am doing a couple quick finishes first and I have picked 3 designs to work on when I get bored of Egyptian or I need a break so I don't loose my mojo.
In honor of finishing my first HAED I have purchased two more LOL. One is called Tribal Owl, it is this beautiful white barn owl on a nice light blue background, there are only 4 blues in the background so I could probably whip through at least 6 pages of this design right away. Then I purchased a QS called Lady bug, it is just the black outline of a flower and lady bug and some other stuff which I can't remember, unlike most HAED the stitching doesn't cover the entire fabric space so I expect this to be a rather quick finish. I am hoping I can fit it into my schedule of projects for this year but its no big deal if I don't. I am going to put the design on 18 count simply sunshine by silkweave. I bought this fabric (vibrant yellow) because it looked cool but I had no idea what I was going to put on it, as soon as I saw this pattern I knew I had to have it for this fabric.
Well thanks for listening, next time I post I promise there will be a happy dance photo.
Well after 2 productive weeks and a very productive long weekend I have made extremely good progress on Found by HAED. I have under 3500 stitches and only 2.5 pages to go.
I am going left to right across one entire row at a time to finish all the bits of confetti stitching left. If all goes well I will be finished by the end of the month.
I can't seemed to upload my latest progress photo so I will have to try again tomorrow.
Thanks for listening.
