Tarot Fool of Dreams - Marchetti

Hi everyone

I am just finishing page 10 and nearly a third through. Still loving this project and now the light nights are coming I am able to crack on with this for a couple of hours after work each night.

See you in a couple of weeks when hopefully I would have done a little bit more xx

Happy stitching everyone x

So here we have Sessler's Healers Touch.  Stitched on 25 count Lugana, 3x1 tent stitch.  I started this back in July and forgot to post pictures to the Blog.  Oops.  I promise to be more consistent.  This is my first ever attempt at tent stitch and I love the speed of it.  So fun to see real progress in a realistic time frame as I am a slow stitcher.  I love how this one is coming together.  The colours and the back blend so seamlessly.  I was a bit nervous though as everything seems  a bit dark, but I'v learned along the way to trust the chart and keep going, it will all work out together once you get a bit further.

Shoot the Moon - Darlene Hamelin


My name is Darlene and I am attempting my first HAED design, Shoot the Moon by Michele Sayetta.  I am stitching on 25 count Lugana, over one stitch using one strand of floss.  So far I am pleased with my progress and have learn allot about stitching such an complex pattern.   I have been stitching for over twenty years and still enjoy finding challenging patterns.  I have recently had back surgery and have found myself with lots of time to sit and stitch.  I have learn a couple of things about stitch HAED design and I am already searching for my next project.  Question has anyone use two strands of floss on 25 count over one?



Here is my progress so far!!!!!

Hi everyone - my name is Debbie and I live in the UK and this is my first post to Haed. I have been stitching for years but only found HAED a couple of years ago. My current project is marchetti's Tarot of Fools which I started on 18 November 2014. I am currently loving this as it is stitching up really quickly. I am stitching it on 16 count aida in a really light blue. Hopefully with the Christmas break coming up I can really crack on with it.

HAED Shore Line Village

Here is a long overdue update on Shore line.  It took so long because it was sky....  So much sky.... got boring at times, but I kept on..  Here is the result.

The page I just finished:

And the whole piece so far!
I hope the next page does not take this long and is a little more interesting.  I understand the need for the pages and pages of sky,  and love the end result, but really dont like stitching them!
Cant wait to see the next page!

During this time, I also finished pages 5 and 6! The first row is finally done :)

I hope that my new location will leave me lots of time for stitching.
