Here is Leaf with Page 9 finished. This was also my Yearly HAED goal. So it is now onto Page 10 and I hope to get at least 1/2 page finished this month.
DH is still home with his wrist. DD also got engaged. They are in South America and he proposed on Easter Island. She is getting married when they get home which will be 2011/2012. So plenty of time to plan.
Everyone's work is great and Happy Birthday to Wendy and Happy Anniversary - 10 years is a big milestone.
Thanks for looking :)

Wendy, I wish I could be there to help you celebrate, but since I can't get to Belgium from the U.S. today, I baked you a cake instead!!
I wish for you all the happiness life can give, much sunshine to help you grow and many friendships that are as special to you, as your friendship is to me:)
Sending you BIG, HUGE TEXAS SIZE (((HUGS))) and lots of love:)
In fact, my DS had a good laugh, when I told him I wanted to add a dangerous factor to my stitching and therefore worked at two sides. In his mind, how can stitching be something else than dull (I forgive him, he is only 17 years old).
Anyway, so you girls can sleep as comfortably as before, yesterday evening I built a bridge between the two parts, and it turns out to be perfect. I have to add some stitches, but I already can assure you I did the perfect counting, and I don't have to frog a stitch! Look for yourself.
And this was May 22nd:
On Call of the Raven I managed to finish her left sleeve, so now I can move on the the left side, to finish the colourful beams. No picture yet, because uploading to blogger doesn't work right now, I'll give it a try later on ....
What concerns the Kreinik - I'm still not complete sure what to do. To be honest, as much as I do love glitter normally, it seems somehow out of place in the sky. I doubt it that the artist herself has glitter on the original painting. It just doesn't feel and looks right to me. I think I'll replace the Kreinik in the sky with white.
And not sure yet what I do with the glitter in the snow. I might leave that. It takes ages anyway until I'm in the position to make a decision about that. Who knows what opinion I'll have by the time I reach the pages where that comes up.
Here's my progress on TT Purple Dragon. I stitched on this for the HAED TT/ QS/ SK SAL over last weekend then again Wednesday evening and last night. I love this piece so much.
I am thoroughly enjoying seeing everyones stitching. It's a joy to see each piece coming to life:)

I didn't participate last week due to a family emergency. Today I stitched Mistress. I am nearly done with another page (which will be 4 pages done). I will post a picture on my blog when it is completed. I have noticed in the moon that I will have to wash the piece. You can see the color difference in what I just did in the moon and what was done back on the first page of the piece.
Do you remember when I told you how excited and impatient I was because I wanted to see the first raw finished ? Now, it is done !!! Everything comes at the good time I think...
I'm now working on the second raw, and it's fantastic to see my project slowly growing.
So here is my work :
And this is a focus on the last page of the first raw :
I hope that everything goes well for everyone, and I wish you all a fabulous and happy week !!

Previous Progress as of May 18, 2009
I haven't time to update last week, but here I am now! I have been stitching some, but not as much as normaly. First because I have done LOT of gardening but allso because I'm really bored to stitch that heaven agin. Large areas same color - not so fun to do actually. But - when I finish that page, I can move on to stitch towers. That would bee something new! Yay!
Our puppy is coming home this saturday! His name is Rudolf , by the way. . So probably I wount be able to stitch so much next couple weeks. But i defenetly participate SAL and of course read all of your great and wonderful updates!

So, here's a bunch more done!
Stitched 1x1 on 32ct jobelan, with DMC and PTB for the sparklies. In real life the colours are so vivid, she's beautiful!
Thanks for looking :)
Now I've got to sweep up, and try and glue back all of my hairs that I've pulled out over the past few days. The hard part will be finding the proper follicle for each hair. Sigh.

Another week has passed and I was able to do a lot of stitching on my Land of Enchantment. I enjoy it so much that I didn't even stitch on my other WIP's.
So here is my update on my HAED. I did about 2400 stitches last week.
I really enjoy so much seeing your progresses that I want to stitch some more HAED. You guys are doing such a wonderful job.
Next week on Saturday it is my birthday, so I ordered 2 new patterns. I don't know if I will be able to wait before I will start one of them.
I ordered 2 patterns from Scott Gustafson which are "Pegasus and the Muses" and Santa Claus at the North pole". I'm all excited to receive them.
