Hi everyone,
During this weekend I managed to complete two more pages (one partial, but it's still a page right) on Touch of Spring (my very first project on HAE, and the one that made me fell in love by them). I'm really enjoying to see it growing and to step back and see the entire picture. And I'm now a step closer to one of my yearly goals on the HAE BB (to complete 8 pages) since 5 are already done :)
Hope you like it,
(Everything I stitched so far)

Daisy Offerings

Posted by my buddy Linda K

This is my progress on HAED Daisy Offerings by Sandra Kuck...I am on Page 2 out of 36 pages.  I have two more rows to go and than this page will be finished.  Her Hairline is going real slow because it is a different color in every square.  I am doing the Hairline first before I do the rest of the Page.  I am stitching this on 25 Count Potato Lugana 1 over 1.  My Progress as of today, Mon, May 30, 2011.  I thought I would also show a close up picture of this as well as the whole view. 
Thanks for looking....Enjoy....

Bottom of the Garden by Babs

Hello all, it's been a while but I have some (little) progress on my Bottom of the Garden. I hope to get the 3th page finished by the end of June, but I'm not sure about it. This page has a little part of the wings in it, so that means a lot of confetti stitching.

I love the progress on all of your works, but unfortenatly Blogger isn't letting me post comments. I hope it gets fixed soon.

Love, Babs

Oriental Courage

Here is what I have been working on this week. Almost 1/2 way done page 2

Green Dragonling by my buddy Mag

Hello everybody !

A small article to show you my progress on Green Dragonling for May.
I haven't made much progress since April. I finished my second page and started my third page. with this new page, I stitch the design's background. This is not the most motivating part but at least there isn't much confetti stitch !
I've managed to do 10 200 stitches so far ! I stitch on 25 ct evenweave. Below are the pictures of my progress !!
I will probably not be able to do a lot of stitching in the coming weeks because we are moving in our new flat next weekend. I don't know when I'll get my internet access back but I hope it won't be too long.
Now it's time for me to go finish our boxes !

"Humble Adobe"

I am making progress with "Humble Adobe". I find it easier to stitch on 28ct Lagana. The size will be 56"h by 40"w when I am finished with the design.


Humble Adobe

I switched from 25 ct to 28 ct for this design, "Humble Adobe" because my eyes were getting too tired to stitch on 25 ct. After a month of stitching and debating what to do, I thought I would start over and try 28ct even though it will be large! I am hoping that I can stay with the design to finish it.


Storykeep Rhapsody of N. Thomas

Hello friends, after all this time I show you my last wip work I'm doing ... is a storykeep N. Thomas ... is called "Rhaspdody" I started two months ago, I'm working with DMC Mouline 2-wire on white aida fabric 80 ... I hope to finish it soon ....

Update on Creativity

She is a pleasure to stitch. The colors are wonderful and stitching the face goes quite fast, not a lot of confetti except for her eyes. The 5th page is almost finished. There are 12 pages in total (3 partials).

1 over 1, full cross, 25 count

Happy stitching!

Dragon Fae - Selina Fenech

Hi everyone,
I haven't posted here for a while so, since I've been stitching on Dragon Fae for a little bit, this past week, I decided to share with you my small progress, I intend to return to it as soon as I finish some other stitches I have to do, so I hope I'll have another update still during this month.

I'm tent stitching the background and doing full cross stitches for the dragon and for the fairy, I know there's not much to see yet but The horn of the dragon is already showing and I think that you can see the fairy wing already gaining shape.

Happy Stitches,


Unicorn Dream - Week 75, Dreams of Gaudí - Week 71

Page seven of the Unicorn is complete! And since six out of the eight remaining pages are partial pages, I think I'm officially done with more than half of it! As usual, I've let it rest for a week.

There's not much left from Gaudí's 9th page, just a tiny bit of cloud, and the roof of the house! With a little bit of luck this page will be complete by next week!

Dragon Lady Update from Buddy Jacob

I am nearly done (maybe 25 stitches away) from being done with page 3 of Dragon Lady (exept for the two colors I forgot to order).

Kim's Dragon Rider

As usual I'm starting by thanking Susan for putting my update up for me, thank you Susan!
Here's my progress on Dragon Rider, and I'm quite happy with it because I managed to get all the confetti done on my first page of it, and that was a lot of confetti so it's a lovely feeling so see the end of that, on this page at least. You don't want to see the back of this, it's awful. I'm hoping the large area of one colour will help to cover all the trailing threads, at least a bit. I was really disappointed with this page because it didn't really look like anything, but when I looked at the photo I actually started to see the picture developing where I hadn't seen it on the stitching, I guess because I'm always sat so close to it. If you're not sure what the blue, black and green smush you're looking at is, allow me to explain. It's the light shining through the trees, you can just about make out branches and stuff appearing, and the sky is pretty self explanatory. There's also a little brown splodge to the top right of the photo, that will be the beginning of the dragon's wing
Dragon Rider by Randal Spangler, stitched 1 over 1 in full crosses on 25 count evenweave.
Happy stitching everyone, loving seeing your updates
