Finally an Update

At last, I have a little time in which to make a post. February and March are always extremely busy months around here, and when it gets like this I seem to choose to stitch rather than blog. But things seem to be slowing down some around here now, and next week it should get even better.

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.


I have stitched a little bit on some other things, keeping up with a couple other SALs, but I am going to save those for another post, or this one will become rather unwieldly.

happy stitching everyone!

OMG, Laura, you are stitching on three HAEDs at the same time. That's a challenge but a real great one. I'd love to be brave enough to buy and start my first HAED ...

Sally said...

Wow, Laura, your HAEDs are looking fantastic! I don't know how you cope with 3 BAPS though!

Ranae said...

Your HAED's look great.
I like to have more then one WIP to pick from depending on the mood.
You Go Girl!!

Oooh I just love all your 3 WIP's on your HAED. I also have diffent WIP's for the moment, but I mostly stitching on my HAED now, because I really want to finish my first page. I love to stitch the HAED and have some more on my wishlist.

Wow girl, they are simply gorgeous. I can't believe you have three of them on the go. I am working away at my first one and finding it a challenge. I admire you for being able to handle that many.

Hey Laura! Decided that I needed to post a comment so you would know I was looking.... :-) I'm impressed with your HAED's. I got brave enough to start mine - Sailing through life. I'm on the 2nd column of the sky on the 1st page. Had to set it down for a while but maybe 10 years from now it will be beautiful.....
