Train of Dreams (Spangler)

I have a lot of fun making the Train of Dreams. (Spangler) Very colorful and fun details. If you sit with your nose into it, you see often nothing. But if you take away from what you see anything suddenly appears. The pencil I had not even recognized. Until I had made the picture. For when I am sitting in the garden I am doing the Medusa (Williams). That is very much 3371. Little variation. So easy for outside.

Unicorn Dreams, Gaudi

I don't have a lot left from the third page of the Unicorn, the castle is almost complete, and very soon the dragon and the princess will show up as well :)

And I managed to finish the fourth page of Gaudí... I'm going to continue up and to the right, with the other half of the top of the tower.

Sifter framed

Well here it is, the framed Sifter. I think the frame is pretty dark matching. That was quite a challenge to find because all blacks do not really fit this works. This is dull, dented, with a red haze over the higher parts.

The Final Few are Finally Done

Hey Everyone,

You are all doing a wonderful job on your stitching. This is the last time I will post the pandas. They were fun to do, but I am glad they are finished.

As soon as I finished, I started pulling thread for my next project. You don't know this about me but I am crazy about anything Christmas. As a matter of fact I have one bedroom that is all decorated up for Christmas all year long. It is such a fun place to visit during the day.
I have started on Christmas Presence. I have one picture to show you all the stitching I have done and a picture of the picture that came with the pattern. Wish me luck.

I hope you are enjoying your WIPs as much as I am. Until next time.
Happy Stitching,

Dragonfly Update

I'm loving this one and can't stop stitching on her. I've completed page 2 of her now. Although it's hard, I'm going to put her down for a week now and concentrate on Enchanted Flute again. But I'm sure I'll be back to her soon.

Wizard news

Finally an update of the Wizard of Oz again. It's great stitching it, I enjoy every moment of it. Because there are a lot of colour changes, there's never a dull moment. But of cours due to all the colour changes it doesn't stitch very fast as well. I can stitch about three rows in a week, there is a slow, but continuous progress...!

Aurora's Garden and Mermaid of the Deep SK

Since my last update, I spent the first week working on Aurora's Garden. I am nearing the completion of the first page...soon...

Before and after:

Then I went to the WIP drawer and ended up with Mermaid of the Deep (SK) in my hands. Now usually when I haven't seen a piece in a while, it feels like, "WOW! I did this? It's so pretty!" and I want to work on it because it's great and wonderful and all that. Well, not with this one. I looked at it and thought, "That's it? I worked so hard on this and this is what it looks like?" Since it was the week of the freebie SAL on the HAED BB, I worked on it, but put her back 2 days early because she just wasn't doing anything for me. I'm not that into the big eyes of JBGs and I HATE the 28 ct fabby!

Before and after:


Call of the Raven

It's time for an update from me too. I have been stitching mostly on Call of the Raven. I have been neglecting her for too long, so I think I will concentrate on her next months. Vibrant Vista will have to wait until next autumn, because its time for my 'summer stitching' again. That means Mary Wigham and Cirque des Carreaux, an Ink Circles design.
Anyway, here's my update:

Cheryl's update: The Waiting (Schim Schimmel)

I have done quite a lot since the last update, working at it steadily
each day. I finished off about 3 pages down the bottom and am now
working on the tedious dark blue and black area background. Then I
will do the confetti lightening in the spaces...

Unicorn Dream; Gaudi

I've completed most of the Unicorn's mane, and I've made the first stitches in the castle as well, the flag on top of its tower is ready!

And what can you see in Gaudí? Colors! :D If I can keep up this speed, next week I'll be done with the fourth page!

March Giveaway Winners!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the drawing.
The 2 winners are.....

Sharine and Valerie J!

I don't have your email addresses here. I think you are both HAED Buddies! How fun is that?!!! I know that Valerie is a buddy. Anyway, would each of you please send me your info so I can get it out to Marie? Thanks!


I've been a naughty girl and made a new start. I've actually completed page 1 of Dragonfly.
I am loving this one, she is progressing so much quicker than Enchanted Flute (less confetti stitching). I actually can't put her down at the moment, I'm stitching on her every spare minute I have (it's driving my hubby mad but he's getting used to my stitchy ways now lol!)

Joanne's Wizard of Oz Update

I haven't stitched much over the past couple of months, although I enjoy stitching this design I lost my 'stitchy bug' and I'm only just getting it back. My laptop has also been in for repair and I couldn't contact Caroline. I've also been studying hard for an exam in June and the coursework has now been handed in so lots more stitching time available. I've stitched over the past day or so on the blue area on the right.
Thank you.
