Stitched on 25 count magic count evenweave, 1 over 1 full crosses
Started Tuesday 30th April 2014
One day God willing it will look like this...
and just in case you thought I had stitched loads, here is a less "close-up" picture...
Ha ha! I do love it. The crosses are so tiny and neat and the colours blend together when viewed from a distance without my glasses on. I reckon I have stitched around 1,000 of 282,500 stitches as each of the red squares contains 400 tiny stitches! I am really going to enjoy every stitch and can't believe I was scared to start a HAED!
I had stitched a bit on Morning Glory earlier in the week before the HAED shouted to me, here's an update, don't expect to see this one or any of my other projects any time soon!
I am still working on a piece for the Gorjuss exchange over at Mii Stitch. There are three of us taking part. Part of the exchange is to stitch a Gorjuss girl and finish however you like. I have almost finished the cross stitch and have decided how to finish. I am well on target (just in case Ingrid and Heather are reading this!) to finish before our 1st July deadline.
Speaking of finishes, look at this gorgeous finish which I received in the surprise post yesterday!
A beautiful Lucie Heaton mouse pillow complete with a cute gift tag which comes in its very own pocket!
This came from Jacquie of My Journey blog. Thank you so much Jacquie. It was such a lovely surprise and your finishing is perfect.
I didn't post a Stitch from Stash update this month as I completely blew the budget ordering from my local LNS. I will post pictures later. That means though that I have used my "free" month and will have to stick rigidly to budget now for the rest of the year. I hope my enthusiasm for my HAED project will keep me busy! The HAED 50% off sale is calling to me though!
Hope you're all enjoying the long weekend in the UK.
Until next time,
Until next time,
