First page completed

PhotobucketHere she is, this is the first page completed, I finished her last Sunday, this was after 14 days/nights of work. So I am now waiting for the next page to arrive, it will be a long month, although I will start working on Gossy again to keep me busy.

In the current HAED sale I have purchased 2 patterns and I received another one from the RAK fairy, QS Blue Morpho.... this is a stunning Blue Butterfly, I am so excited about starting this pattern, I will start one of these new ones as soon as there is a completed Storykeep, may get one other non-HAED project done, then kit up my new large HAED Merry Christmas to all! I would love to start this in the next couple of months...... first though I do need to relocate my stitching bug! Where o Where can she be! Will keep you posted!

Day 11 - progress pic

Well here she is, this is the progress after day 11, she is looking more than stunning, not feeling 100% so progress is slower than usual, hoping to get lots done this weekend, including getting this page finished so I can get on with some of my other projects!

HAED Moon Fantasy

Well she is growing, lots and lots, I definately can't seem to put her down, the plan is to get page one of her almost finished this weekend, tonight I will be working on her eyes to see if I can totally bring her to life, starting to come down with a bit of a cold so may find that I have to stay home and stitch a bit (what a shame) and catch up on sleep and get rid of this cold, oh well such is life. This is moon fantasy after 9 days of stitching!

Works in Progress

Well it has been a long time between updates, but life has been real busy, I have managed to sneak in some time stitching though, I have started the Moon Fantasy Storykeep by HAED, this is a SAL through their website, I am thrilled with my progress, I do need to go back and fill in some of the confetti stitching, I find I am prefering to stitch the blocks, then go back and fill in the gaps.

This is after 5 days/nights stitching.

The other one that I am currently working on is the Gossamer Princess Storykeep also by
HAED, this seems to be much slower progress, it is not quite growing as much as I would like it too, so I need to find some days and weeks to stitch this, there is alot more confetti stitching in this, this is after 5 days/nights stitching.

With a couple of days stitching this weekend, I am not quite sure which one will grab my attention, and entice me to pick up the needle after I have finished the RR piece of a christmas decoration......, I will keep you posted!
