Wow Astrid! Those are really some wonderful progresses!

Joke said...

Astrid, how beautiful (I mean Madonna lol) Is your mystery Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt?

Eighty eight colors in your mystery piece and I bet 70 of them are shades of #310! You two will be good friends before you're done stitching the Sifter!I always like it when a piece has a "history". I had no idea about this one.

But I do want to know how you can have 3 large HAED WIPs and make so much progress?!?

Astrid,
This one was easy! "Dog" got my interest, so I typed it in as a search term on HAED. Three patterns came up, one with a black corner, but didn't look like anything with a dog. Searched with the term yellow, and the same pattern came up. Hhhmm? Searched with king, and viola, same pattern! None of the three looked like they had anything to do with dog, yellow, or king so I had to take a peek!

I bought The Astronomer this morning, will print it out on the way to work. Fabric is ordered. Yippeee!

Yes Sabine... i did make it to easy. But because I am dutch and the explenation below the chart was heavy. We (hub and I) read it and get intriegt bij the meaning of the Sifter. We never heard of it. I have to make it. So dark so full of history.We surched the whole internet or we can find more of it. I had to give a hint like "horse" ore something.much more hits......... haha welll next time.... We can work togheter on the astronomer... I want to know if somebody of the other 98 ladys have bought it !!!!

Sabine S. said...

I like the darkness and history behind it too, but it would be too depressing for me right now. I need colors, but I'll be watching your progress!

Yes Astrid, we can have a SAL within our SAL! Do I get a 2 year head start??? Kidding! Anyone else??? Come on ladies...it's on sale!

I confess. I bought Astonomer the first day it appeared. Haven't kitted it yet because I want to reach my goal on Contemplating the System.
The Sifter, very dark, but interesting. I almost bought it too, but didn't think I would every really stitch it. I'll be watching yours Astrid.

Astrid said...
