HAED Rotation

Sunday, August 7, 2022


 So glad to be rejoining the SAL. The break was just what I needed to sort out my issue with Chocolate Chocolate and More Chocolate. If you recall I was having issues with my fabric. Every time I picked it up there were new issues. Missing fabric threads, small holes etc. The fabric was disintegrating. I finally bit the bullet and even though I had a lot done I restarted it on a better piece of fabric. I am so much happier with it now and have made a good restart. Since other projects are also calling me I have come up with a plan (we'll see how this goes LOL). One of the floss tubers I watch does what she calls Daily 30 with her focus piece. She does 30 minutes on it everyday before other stitching. I have decided to do Daily 60 on Chocolate. Hopefully that will give me more good progress. 

Here is where it was when I restarted on July 19.

And here is where it is now.

I may try to save the long column on the original but haven't really decided how yet.

I do this SAL with a group of very talented stitchers who are working on a variety of amazing projects. 

Please check out their projects.

 Day 3 was Black Cat.

There has been good progress on him. 

On day 4 I realized I didn't have a diamond painting in my rotation so I kitted this up and started it.

Day 5 is Witch Way.

So far it is going good.

 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.

 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.
