I have been stitching in this lost time, but it has been mostly on my HAED designs. I was motivated to get back to stitching on Santa's List, my Christmas HAED WIP, by an informal HAED SAL organized by Cindy F. Then I received a message from Denise on the HAED Forum that she was getting the Christmas SAL there restarted. I was already working on Santa's List, so I joined that one as well. Then I was delighted to find that Cindy and Wendy started a blog for HAED stitchers called Our Friends HAED SAL, which I also joined. When I finished my first page on Santa's List, I still wanted to stitch on a HAED, but I was ready to do something different. So I pulled Fairy Village out of the drawer, and then later retrieved May I Have This Dance as well. I have enjoyed getting back to stitching these designs. Progress is slow, but I enjoy watching the design emerge onto the fabric. Here are some updated pictures.
First is Santa's List by Ruth Sanderson. I have finished the first page.
Next is Fairy Village by Lisa Victoria. I have about 2 and 1/2 pages done.
And finally, here is May I Have This Dance, which I am still stitching away on as of yesterday. I have almost finished 4 pages, but only one of them was a full page. I have approximately 11,000 stitches completed.
happy stitching everyone!
