HAED Rotation

I've been on a Treasure Quest

Not really but I have been stitching on Treasure Quest by Randal Spangler (HAED) this past week. I made some decent progress. A little over 1000 stitches. This one I am doing a little differently than the others. When I pick up a project each week I let it tell me where to stitch on it. I may see a group of symbols that I haven't stitched yet & they look interesting so I will stitch there. My preferred starting place is the lower left corner but on some of my HAED's I have started in the upper left as suggested. On Treasure Quest as I was working on it I decided to outline it. I have stitched a row all the way to the bottom on the left had side,then across the bottom & I am currently working my way up the right hand side. We shall see if everything meets when I get across the top to join with what I have already stitched in the upper left.
This coming week I will be stitching on Midieval Shelf. This is a relatively new addition to the rotation so not alot done yet. This one is telling me so far that it wants to be stitched across the top first so that's what I shall do. Demanding aren't they.
We have also had our first significant snowfall this weekend. As far as I'm concerned it is enough. I hate driving in it & I have a 20 mile commute to work. Hopefully the ice & snow on the roads will be gone by Monday.
Enough rambling. Time for the eye candy. The fiirst pic is where I was before I started last Sunday & the second is where I finished up last night. I'm about halfway up the right side.
Also included a pic of the nasty white stuff.
I almost forgot its TUSAL time of the month.
Also someone asked one time how I keep track of my rotation. Here is a pic of how I store them.
My DH does legos as a hobby (he's retired) & he gets lots of help.

  1. Like DH's helpers, the cat looks ready to put a piece in herself. Your storage system is very nice, I can see how that would help you keep track.

  2. I do a similar storage system - an Ikea box and plastic envelopes, quite organised I am this year! We shall see whether it results in some finishes, lol!

    Very demanding, your HAEDs, will be crossing fingers and toes that everything lines up! I'll give you a wave in a couple of days, I will be almost in your time zone!

  5. Find it fascinating how your HAEDS all talk to you and demand to be stitched differently. Hope the border behaves itself and meets up nicely. Love the Lego what a great hobby and such nice helpers

  12. Wow, you got a lot done Cindy. Great job. Love the "help" your DH is getting with his legos. And I'm glad you have a storage system that works for you.

  13. I love the idea of stitching what area calls to you when you pick up a project. I may try that

  14. It looks great. I sometimes stitch what the pattern is calling to be stitch. I seem to get more done that way. I traveled in that snowstorm but I was on a train so I didn't need to worry about the roads.

  16. hi cindy, like your storage system, but being nosy what are the white things to the right of the plastic envelopes please, sorry if others see this as a silly question, but we all need to learn something each day.

    Take care

  17. Girl you are game stitching around the whole pattern without gridding... I make mistakes even with a grid LOL.
    Gotta love your hubbie's shirt (and of course his cute helpers...) Looks like there might just be just a wee bit of jealousy over who get's the most lovin'
