Hello Out There in Stitching Land!!

It's been a long time since my last post!
Several weeks ago I told my buddy that I had put away all of my HAEDs because none of them were bringing me any joy. I spent some time stitching on CDC and another piece, but soon I missed HAEDs. How could that be? So I thought about the difference between patterns I like and those I would like to stitch and eventually hang on the wall, about stash, and how I go about stitching HAEDs. I learned a few things...

Then for my birthday I received this chart: Lady Godiva by John Collier.
How could I resist a new start? I find that I am enjoying her very much! It is a peaceful piece. I want to stitch on her every day, but it's more like wanting to spend time with an old friend, rather than feeling the pressure to get so many stitches in. I think something clicked in me about enjoying the process of stitching a HAED.

So here she is! The upper left corner has so many shades of browns and tans and even purple! I wish the picture would show how beautiful it really is, but even in daylight I could not get a good shot.
Thanks for looking!!!

I was wondering where you were! I've always believed that stitching is for enjoyment. If you don't enjoy it, don't do it. I'm glad you found something you like doing.
