Mich - So great to have a new stitching frame !!

So last Sunday my stitching frame broke down !!! Grrrr, it was awfull !!! I really felt at that moment, that I'm pretty addicted to this HAED. It was lucky that I was away all Monday, so that I wouldn't have had the time to stitch anyway. But Tuesday evening after work, the first thing I did was going to buy a new frame. I was a bit afraid if they were going to have that in my little village, but they had one even better than the one I used before. It's the same size, for which I was glad, because it felt the same in my hand, but the edges were thicker, so better quality I think, and the edges are even chamfered, so very smooth to hold in my hand.



This is what I had stitched up to last week. It was fun then to do a lot of the blue part, which were normal stitches, so it went very fast.








And this is where I have come this week. Again lots of confetti stitches, but slowly the Christmas tree is founding his way to my fabric. I hope I will still stitch a lot during this weekend, because I really want to see how the tree looks like. At least tomorrow I need to finish this first page of my pattern.

Have a nice weekend, all of you, and hope you have some time to stitch !!

Nice progress! It looks like I'm not the only one who uses a hoop to stitch on HAEDs even. :)
