New to Blog

Hi! I am Claire and I am 32 years old. I live near Lincoln in the UK. I am married (11 years) and have a daughter who is 9 years old this week.

I have been stitching since about the age of 9 on and off. Mum taught me after I enjoyed watching her stitching.

I have stithed on HAED's for a little while but sadly only managed to finish just 1. I love the look of the designs, the colours and the idea of how stunning they are when completed - but I have had so many starts its unbelievable.

The design I have finished is Dragon Fae Storykeep in 2006 which I stitched along with Lisa. At the moment I am working hard on QS Black Cherry as part of the SAL on the HAED board. I am also planning to make a new start in April - although not completely decided on what!

You said its sadly that you only managed to finish just 1... JUST 1?????? Its not ´just 1´ it it ´omg you finished 1 haed design´!
I wish I could say that, hehe.

Good luck with Black Cherry and I´m looking forward to see your new start! Please share lots of pics!
