HAED Rotation

Saturday, July 2, 2022


 Day 2 of Halloween in July is Boo. No idea when I started it but the last time I worked on it was 9/11/2021.

 Happy July 1 everyone. I see a lot of posts about people stitching Christmas in July. I have never been a huge Christmas fan but I do have a favorite holiday. I've decided that it will be Halloween in July for me. If anyone would like to join me feel free to do so. This will be my rotation for July.

1st up in my Halloween in July rotation is All Hallows Hat. Actually made a pathetic start on 9/23/2021. Let's see if I can make some good progress.

 Good morning/afternoon/evening to all. I am happy to say I have made good progress on The Astronomer. There is hope that I will make more  progress in the  next 3 weeks.

This is what it looked like last time you saw it.

This is what it looks like now.

This is a hint as to why it moves so slow.

I am doing this SAL with a very talented group of ladies. Please go to their blogs to see the wonderful projects they are working on.

 It's time for another update. I moved the q snap because the confetti was slowing me down. I really didn't work on it much till yesterday. (squirrels you know). Anyway I won't ramble here is what it looked like when I started yesterday and what it looks like when I'll be starting today.

Not as much as I would have liked but all stitches count.

I am doing this SAL with a group of very talented ladies. Please stop by their blogs to see the wonderful projects they are working on. Also welcome back Connie who has rejoined us.


Till next time Happy Stitching.

 As I mentioned previously I have an issue with the fabric on Chocolate Chocolate and More Chocolate. My friend who does beautiful hardanger says it can be fixed but I need to stitch closer to stabalize the fabric. Right now I am not able to do that. I sit and look at it and then put it away. Hopefully soon. Until then I am changing projects for the SAL. 

The new project is one that really deserves some dedicated time. This was the first HAED I every purchased and I still love it. I started it in 2/2010. Then I started discovering other artists and the rest is history. You all know how many I am stitching. LOL. 

This is where the suck it up comes in. The part I'm working on is very confetti heavy and I get bored easily. The other day he called to me and I said: "Self it is time to put on your big girl panties and get on with it" so I did. This is my progress since Friday. Please say hello to:

I am pleased with the progress I have made so far and hope to have a lot more filled in by the next update.

Till next time HAPPY STITCHING.

 It is time for the 3 week check in but I have no progress to show. There is an issue with my fabric and until I am comfortable with the repair I will be putting it away. I will hopefully be back in 3 weeks with progress or a new focus project.

Please say a prayer for Carmela's family in their time of loss. She will be missed here.

I do this SAL with talented group of ladies. Be sure to check out the wonderful projects they are working on.

Time really needs to slow down. I have a change in projects. The Wedding Memories that I have been stitching was released as a diamond painting by Diamond Art Club so I decided to get that to do for the kids. Hopefully it will be done before their anniversary in Sept. The stitching has retired to the closet for now but who knows may come out again in the future. On that note my new SAL project is one that I have been working on since Oct 2010. I am stitching if for my oldest daughter and would like to finish it sooner rather than later.

Be sure to stop by and see what the other members of this great SAL are working on. They have some amazing projects.

Till next time Happy Stitching.
