I've Found My Way Back

Hello stitching friends!!!!!

It's been a long, long time since I have posted or commented and I apologize to everyone! I fell off the HAED wagon and then I think it ran over me 3 or 4 times! After binging on stitching HAEDs only for a few months, all of a sudden I had to work on my forgotten Cirque de Circles, Salem Sisters, and I started the Monopoly board. Too much of a good thing isn't necessarily good!

Then I woke up yesterday and felt like today was a great day to pull out a HAED! I picked Aurora's Garden and took it to work. Only got in 150 stitches, but will work on it again today. Here it is:

Going from the HAED to the Monopoly board was a tactile experience like no other. The 14 ct Aida felt like burlap and the needle is as big as a nail! I felt like I was working on the "Tonka Toy" of stitching projects.

Belated congrats to all who had finishes!!!! That must feel awesome! The rest of your progress I will catch up on.

Glad to hear from you again!! I have the feeling everybody is quiet busy lately, think it is because of the summer vacation. I'll make the link and I'll take a look at your blog too!
