HAED Rotation

Thursday, January 25, 2018


I'm a day late with this post. Here is my last 3 days of stitching on The Astronomer. I'm making pretty good progress as it is all confetti stitching.

Time is going way to fast. It's time for another SAL update already. I have been making good progress on both projects that I am stitching for January. I may change one or both in February but haven't made a firm decision yet.

On Sat and Sun I stitch on Coming to Room  HAED. I am pleased with the progress I have made so far since I only started it on Jan 1. Where it was last update

And as of this morning

I have also made significant progress on my Mon-Fri stitching of The Astronomer. In fact I have had a page finish since the last SAL post and made good progress on the next page.

Last time

Page finish

And now

Hopefully I can keep making good progress.

Check out the other talented stitchers that I am doing this SAL with. They are a very talented group who are working on some truly amazing projects

I am joining my friend Deb who blogs at http://tickledpinkinstitches.blogspot.com/ for WIP Wednesday.

I am working on The Astronomer by HAED right now and hope to keep making significant progress this month on it.

This is what it looked like yesterday when I finished stitching.

Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy week.

WIPocalypse SAL 2018

Apparently I have lost all my good sense since I retired. I have now joined this SAL on FB. I find it hard to focus on stitching if I have set a goal. I usually just stitch on whatever takes my fancy at the time. I am also addicted to HAED, Tilton Crafts and Paine Free full coverage pieces so all of my 30+ WIPs are full coverage. I may finish at least one in this lifetime. I like to have a lot of pieces to choose from but I think I need to really get some progress on these things. I have only set a goal for January so far as if I try to project into the future all is lost and I change my mind when the month arrives.
So for January I will be focusing on two HAED's. The first on is my oldest HAED and the project that got me hooked on these charts. Please meet The Astronomer. Myles Pinkney is the artist. I started this poor fellow back in 2010 so now need to make some significant progress. I will be working on this one Mon-Fri.

The second focus piece for this month is a new start for another group on FB. (note to self:must limit time on FB LOL)
This is Coming to Room. Artist is Jan Patrik Krasny. I will be working on this one Sat/Sun.

These are it for now. We shall see what February brings.

Happy stitching everyone.
