Marie, Man Who Minds the Moon


Hello everybody !

Christmas is over and New Year will be along soon...

I wanted to share with you a little discovery...
I found my very first HAED in the depths of my cupboard...
But let me tell you the story !

One year and a half ago, I discovered HAED. God bless that day...
I felt in love with Winter Angel from Kinuko Craft. So I ordered a fabric, and a few days later, I began to stitch it. But, very quickly, the design became to be more complicated than the sky. And, I remembered how I was scared and... I get into a panic ! I didn't know how to go on... It was the first time that I stitched ... And I was lost !
So, I decided to begin with something easier.
That is how I met the "Man who minds the moon" from Christensen. I chose him because the sky was a perfect training, with just one color and some lovely stars.

When I was in the second raw, I heard the strong calling of Winter Angel, my first love...
So, I stopped the Man and its moon.

For three days now, I'm thinking about him. I think that there is a little place for him in this new year which is coming...
I don't know yet if I will continue my work, or restart it. Many reasons make me hesitate between the two possibilities...

Anyway, I wanted to show you my very first HAED..., so here are some pictures...








Thank you for reading my story...

Marie.

Marie, this is such a nice story! Don't drop this design, and no need to start all over :) The stitching is perfect and so is the fabric. Hugs,

Thank you for sharing his/your story! I do hope you will stitch on him this year. He's such a nice, grandfatherly old man.

Bonjour Marie!
I'm glad to read you again, I missed you!
Your story is so beautiful, I'm glad to read that your Winter Angel doesn't scare you at all...
C'est peut-être le hasard, mais mes deux dessinateurs préférés sont Gustafson et Christensen... My fisrt HAED is from the first, maybe the second one will be by the other!
Meilleurs voeux pour la nouvelle année!
