Who Thought this Day Would Ever Come?

After countless new starts, numerous starts that have remained WIPs, and my inability to focus on any one piece, the day has finally come...I have my first HAED finish!

Yes, it's the smallest piece I was stitching on, but it is also the one I thought I would not finish because I simply wasn't enjoying it. But the closer I got, I knew I had to finish her.

So here she is:

SK Mermaid of the Deep (2010 HAED BB freebie SAL) 28ct Lavendar Lugana, 1x1 full crosses, Kreinik in tent

And yes, it took me over a month to post my finish! I was in the hospital for gall bladder surgery and had to return to work only four days later. I am so tired, but looking at all of your wonderful progress pics has kept me stitching, even if only 20 stitches a day.

I am so glad to see you here again, and I feel sad to know that you have health trouble, but I hope that you will soon recover.
You have all my best thoughts with you...

I'm sorry for you that you didn't enjoy stitching it, but the result is really successful ! The work looks neat, and the design took shape.
Moreover, you can be proud, because now, you are a HAED Finisher !!! Lucky Lady !!

It's a great thing that you keep stitching every day ! (and 20 stitches a day is more then me at the moment..!!!)
