Lisa aka Kiwiflowa

Hi my name is Lisa, my BB name is Kiwiflowa, and I live in Auckland New Zealand. I work full time and I used to study part time but this is the first year in 6 years that I'm not studying!!! So now the weekends, holidays and evenings are mine because I don't have homework anymore I'm really looking forward to getting some serious stitching done! My stitching tastes are way too broad, I love sampler, primitive, TW, kits like Dimensions and Lanarte, Mirabilia and L&L and of course HAED. I wish I was a bit pickier in what I liked it would be easier to decide what to stitch! To that end I've decided to dip my toe in and try stitching an HAED again. I've tried before but I didn't really have much time so the designs fell by the wayside. I have 15 HAED charts on my wishlist and last weekend I decided that Sakura will be my first HAED and bought it!

I don't like stitching over one solidly for an HAED so I've ordered some 40ct antique white linen and will stitch 1 over 2. I have the chart printed, floss and hopefully the linen will show up today or tomorrow!
