Cheryl's update: The Waiting (Schim Schimmel) - FINISHED!


After 1 year, 5 months and 10 days, I have completed 'The Waiting'! It's been a lot of work! Of course I don't do cross stitch to finish it, I do it because I love doing cross stitch so I felt a bit deflated after finishing it last night. But this morning I feel good about it. When I first started I never thought I would finish so it's such an achievement for me. I have never completed something so detailed and big before! HAED's are really addictive and I am just waiting for materials to arrive for the next one...

Cheers

Cheryl

Beautiful! Congratulations! I've finished 2 small HAED's before and have several large WIPs. I can't imagine what it is going to feel like when I finish a big one!
