New Member: "The Waiting' by Schim Schimmel

Hi, My name is Cheryl. I'm from NSW in Australia. For over a year I have been doing a Heaven and Earth Design called 'The Waiting' by Schim Schimmel


It is slow progress... but I am getting there. I joined this blog to motivate me to keep going as sometimes it is hard. This is the first time I have done a 25 count 1 over 1 project. Before that the smallest I did was 18 count!


Anyway I am glad I have joined... I have been reading all your updates since the start of this blog and impressed with all you have done... How some of you get whole pages done so quickly is amazing!


Cheers


Cheryl

Hi Marie and Carolyn! Yes the clouds look so good, there are a lot of colours in them, some of them so similar but the effect is marvellous!

Hi and welcome! You'll find plenty of encouragement here! Many of us are new to HAEDs and 25ct 1x1, myself included. You've done a fabulous job already, just keep stitching!
