HAED Rotation

Sunday, October 17, 2021


3 weeks seems to come around really fast. Unfortunately my stitchy bug seems to be either on vacation or being held hostage by my diamond painting bug. I did make a little progress this time. Not much but every stitch counts. Right. Last time was my page finish. I have moved the q snaps and this is where it is now.

I hope everyone else has had more progress than I have. Please check out the other members of the SAL. They are working on some amazing projects.

 I have been busy since our last update. I not only got my page finish but I am now 50% on this project. I have stitched 18 of 36 pages. Happy Dance.

Here is where you last saw it. 

And here it is now. I forgot to take a picture of just the page finish because I was so excited.

I have now moved over to the right so hope to have more progress next update.

We'll see how it goes since my stitchy bug has been absent since the page finish.

Please stop by and see what the other lovely ladies I am doing this SAL with are up to. They have some pretty amazing stitching to look at.

 Lately I have been having trouble sticking to one project. I know you are shocked by this LOL. My mojo kept trying to run away. I think I have found the solution. I came across 2 old old old projects and guess what my mojo came running home.

I think I'll work on these for awhile to see what happens.

First is Santa of the Forest by Lavender and Lace

The second is The Four Seasons by Marjolein Bastin

Back at the beginning of time well HAED time that is I started this on 2/13/2010. It was the one that got me started with HAED . I worked on it pretty regularly for awhile. Then I discovered Randal Spangler's wonderful art and this poor fellow kinda fell off the scene. The last time I stitched on him was 10/24/2018.
Long story short Doby escaped from the stitching closet and was poking around in the basement craft storage and found it. He would not leave me alone so this will get some love. I forgot how much Iike this piece.


Stay tuned. This one has it's hooks in me. Let's see how long it lasts.

 I am sorry to say there has been no progress on The Universe in a Jar for this update. I have been stitching but not on what I was supposed to be focused on. I think I have stitcher's ADD. Hopefully there will be progress for the next update in 3 weeks.

I know the other ladies in the SAL are much more disciplined than I am so please go visit them to see the wonderful stitching they are doing.

 As if  I don't have enough stitching to keep me busy I have a new obsession. About a year ago I started diamond painting and it has become an addiction. I have several finished pieces and I am currently working on 2. I have not abandoned my stitching. I usually stitch for a few hours each day and then diamond paint in the evenings. I will share my finished pieces in another post. Here are the 2 I am currently alternating.

Canine Christmas--Randal Spangler--Diamond Art Club

The Old Shoe House--Dominic Davison--Diamond Art Club.

Just a disclaimer--the only company I buy diamond paintings from is Diamond Art Club.
