Introduction

Hi Everyone! I was so excited when I heard some openings were available to be a part of this great group! First off, my name is Kerri and I currently live in Denver, Colorado with my boyfriend and our two little furkids (kitty cats). I started stitching about 8 years ago and only recently discovered HAED's at the beginning of this year. I've always been drawn to larger designs and I love that they are all full crosses and no backstitch (I despise backstitch!) At the first of the year, I started Chessie by Ash Evans and I'm about a page and a half into it but Chessie is on break at the moment because I started working on Catch a Falling Star by Julie Fain. I love Julie Fain's artwork and this was one of my favorite's of hers so when it got charted I immediately snatched it up. Surprisingly, it only has 14 colors in it which seriously, I think may be the only HAED I've seen with so few colors but I love it because it goes quicker. So here's a pic of what the end will be

and this is where I am so far
It's being done on 18ct aida with 3 strands over 1 and full crosses. What's really cool is on my flickr page, Julie Fain actually left me a message that she was following my stitching and she hadn't actually seen any of her art done in a cross stitch yet so that was very cool!
Anyways, thank you all for letting me join and I look forward to seeing all of your lovely HAED's!
Kerri ;)

Welcome Kerri. What a lovely HAED you have chosen. Exciting that the artist herself is following your progress. That's a nice thing isn't it?
