Introduction

Hi, everyone! Thanks to Cindy and Wendy for organizing this blog, and for sending the invite to join!
My name is Beth, I recently moved back to NJ. I've been stitching on and off for nearly 30 years, but picked it up again about 7 years ago. I found HAED 3 years ago, and was instantly hooked. Right now, I have 10 HAED WIPs. I have a few finishes (1 full size, a couple of QS, Storykeeps and Tiny Treasures).

My first full-sized HAED finish, Wicked Tricksy & False (artist: Jasmine Becket-Griffith):

Photobucket
Stitched 1x1 on 32 count off-white belfast linen. They took me just over 2 years to stitch.

I'm hoping to have my second full-size finish by the end of this year. Storykeeper (artist: Selena Fenech) was the first HAED chart i purchased. I've been working on her just over 3 years. Here's my progress as of this past week:

She's stitched 1x1 on 25 count off white evenweave.

everyone's stitching is beautiful!

I'm truly impressed. The storyteller is SO beautiful. And I'm also curious what the other 9 HAED wip's are.

Looking amazing. It's nice to see a finish as well as WIP's, it keeps me inspired that a finis will eventually happen!

wow... what progress you have made! I would never do a 32 ct one over one on such a large project...
(LOL)... brave you are
(LOL... my first project ... one over one over 18 ct Rapunzel with extra Kreinik... hair still undone (TW))
one over one is for the brave... I do believe... wonderful :)
