Oops I did it again!

Yes, another new start!  And it's a HAED!



I know, I'm crazy, but this design just spoke to me and my younger son.  Here's where I'm up to after a couple of evenings...



It's a Storykeep and "only" 23,775 stitches.  I'm learning so much from stitching it that I will be able to transfer when I work on my larger HAEDs.  I wish I had started with this as it is the smallest chart HAED do, I think.

I will still be working on Mini Christmas Mailbox and of course all my other Crazy January starts and Unfinished Objects.

But for now I'm obsessed with watching the teeny tiny crosses start forming themselves into shapes...

Until next time

Justine

Wow!! You're mad :D You chose a great design.
Remember my latest comment about giving another go at HAED??? Well I am definitely giving up.... I thought a fresh start would help, but sadly not. So I'll be admiring other stitcher's work instead :) Yours is coming along beautifully, keep up the hard work xxx

Very nice start! I have about 3 or maybe 4 HAEDs on the go but not touched them in a long time. Maybe next year I will get back into them. x

I love that HAED! He is just so adorable. I have the stocking in my wishlist for myself and another dragon one in my wishlist for DH. I have three HAEDs on the go right now, so don't feel bad!

Annie said...

A gorgeous start! This is a great additional piece to your red dragon!

Anne said...

You are doing great with your new HAED start! I like the "only" a million stitches bit...lol!! I still have mine to work on...after 3 years it still isn't complete!

Emma/Itzy said...

Oh Justine you are getting worse than me LOL you have made great progress though, well done!

Sarah in Stitches said...

LOL... You're an HAED addict! This is a great start. Can't wait to see your progress!

Linda said...

I love your new start Justine. You have made great progress on it. I'm still not brave enough to do a HAED, but I think my solid stitched pieces qualify.

At least you have made a good start on what will be a beautiful design.

I keep looking at this little guy on head to put in my stash one day maybe I will buy him. It will be great to see him all stitched. Well done on your new start.

Brigitte said...

Wow, that is definitely a good start on this new HAED. You have managed to get so far into it already.

Julie said...

You've really whizzed along with this one Justine, its looking super.

I admire anyone who tackles a HAED! Will look forward to watching your progress : )

Sarah L said...

Looks great! I have the larger chart of this waiting to be started soon.

gominam said...

Two HAEDs! You really are a stitcher:) , will eagerly wait for posts on your progress, happy stitching;)

Only! You must've been sucked into the HaED vortex (or their super dangerous recent sale ahaha). Or the startitis vortex. You've done quite a lot on this one so do share all your secrets you've learned stitching it. :D

Jan Gartlan said...

A great idea to stitch it. Very cute

Steph said...

I'm looking forward to seeing this one grow. I too purchased this HAED in the hopes of it being a bookmark for my son. I'm working on the Home is where the magic is SK at the moment.

Weronika said...

I love HAED designs but I've never tried any of them by myself yet. Good luck with it. I am looking forward to see how it will look like while done.

Miamina said...
