Koukiotis Sleeping Beauty Completed!

Hi everyone! My very first HAED finish. I started on her on the 18 Dec 08 and completed her today, 06 Jul 09. Tent-stitched on 28ct Wichelt Jobelan Lavender Sunset, using HDF silk. This blog is one of the many people whom I want to say thank you to. Without the encouragements and lovely comments from the stitchers here, I wouldn't had the motivation at all. Thank you so much!

What will my next HAED project be? I have no idea. I really hope Mermaid's Touch from the same artist (Koukiotis) will be charted very soon as that one grips me as much as Sleeping Beauty when I first saw it. I guess in the meantime while hoping for it to be charted, I will continue with my Angel of Spring.

CONGRATULATIONS Yvonne !!!!
You are so lucky... no, I know it's not luck, but hard work ! And here is the result... a wonderful and peaceful sleeping beauty. The feeling when you have finished a HAED design must be unique, isn't it ?!
I'm looking forward to see it framed !!

pethair-xstitcher - I managed to get the picture posted on HDF forum with the help from Vikki. It took me a while as I am still not familiar with the HDF forum.

Bravo for your beautiful sleeping beauty! When I finish a work, I'm always a bit sad because I can't stitch it anymore, is it the same for you?

Yvonne said...

Definitely sad, Valerie. I mentioned on my own blog about the mixed feelings I had when I finished her. It is just a weird feeling. I don't feel that much for a project I used a month on but I've used almost 6 months on Sleeping Beauty, so I will definitely feel something is missing when I want to stitch tomorrow early in the morning. Now I really want to know how other stitchers feel when they complete a much bigger HAED project that took them a year or more.
