HAED Rotation

Sunday, June 5, 2022


 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.

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.

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.

 Wow. Where did 2021 go? Not that I'm sorry to see it go. LOL.

I have put some stitching in on the wedding sampler I showed last time. It has become my focus piece for this year at least. 

Last time you saw it it looked like this.


I have made progress. I decided to stitch the border all the way to the top. The fabric is so large I want to see if I can safely cut off some of the excess. The only downside is that I am rapidly becoming tired of DMC 402 but at least it isn't black LOL.

Here is where it is now.

I haven't touched it in a couple of weeks. Taking a break from the aforementioned 402. I hopefully will make some more progress before the next update.

As I stated last time I wanted to finish the section I was working on in The Universe in a Jar. Happy to say I was able to finish it. This is what it looked like last time.
Here is where it is now.











Unfortunately it is retiring for now. I have a wedding sampler that I really need to focus on for my son Matt and his new bride Stephanie. They got married in Sept 2020 and I started it then but I really want to finish it before they have been married 20 years so time to make it my focus.
