Green Dragonling Update

Hello everybody !

This is the end of the month. Therefore, here is my small update on my cross-stitch guiding thread : « Green Dragonling » by Heaven and Earth Designs.

I haven't made a huge progress but I will soon finish the page I'm currently working on. I'm stitching the design's background which is a little bit boring but I must get used to stitching the background because there's a lot of background to stitch !

By the end of September, I hope I'll be done with this page and that I will have started the following page. Next article in September !


HAED's BB SAL 2011 - QS Terra as of 31st August 2011 (Page 5 Done) by Gizzimomo

Hi guys,

Here's the page 5 finish on QS Terra and now I'm up to date with the pages I've got which is REALLY annoying seeing as all that's left to come through is a tiny partial page....... GRRRRR!!

Page Five Done
Progress So Far
So now I have to put her away until the last page comes through and go back to SK Phuan to do Page 2 on him, then to spend some serious time with Faerie Melody!

See you all soon!

Queen of Hearts - Kelly S

Finally finished page 1!! The batteries are dead in my camera (again), so I had to scan it. I'm stitching it on 18ct Aida from Vikki Clayton dyed in "Coffee". So glad to be coming out of the black a little bit!

Now, on to page 1 of "Peacock and Doves"!!

Randal Spangler's Dragon Rider - stitched my demeter83

Okay, this is my first attempt at using the magic email address so I don't know if this will work or not, or how it's going to look, so bare with me.
It was International Hermit and Stitch last weekend, which is where the majority of this stitching was done, it's only my second page, but I'm quite childishly excited ecause I can see the castle pretty clearly now.
Dragon Rider by Randal Spangler
Stitched 1 over 1, full crosses on 25 count evenweave.
And on an unrelated note, is anyone else having problems commenting? It keeps telling me that my account doesn't have access to the page when I try to post my comments! I can comment on some blogs and not others, which is even weirder!

Unicorn Dream - Week 88, Dreams of Gaudí - Week 83

Still fighting with the confetti. But at least the castle in the Unicorn is starting to take shape.

However it's still all the same with Gaudí, the only difference is that the confetti is now green instead of blue.

QS Reflections 2 started and updates on QS Believe and SK Treasures

It's been a long time since I last updated my HAED here, but I can guarantee that I've been busy stitching and here is the proof :)

As you can see I started a new HAED, and if you follow my blog, this new start is my Mistery Project, that I can't share there because it's for my mum and I know she likes to visit my blog. The reason why I'm making it on secret is because my Mum, LOVES angels, and when she came over I showed her QS Reflection 2, she really liked it but didn't ask me to stitch it for her because she thought it would take me a long time to stitch and she wanted me to finish my Christmas projects for my grandmas. So I was initially planning on stitching it next year, but meanwhile I was forced to change my holidays and now I'll be in Portugal visiting my family on the same time that it's my mums birthday and I thought it would be the 2nd best gift to her (being me the 1st eheh)So the deadline for it is mid-October to have time to frame it before leaving on November. It's being stitched on Whimsey Lugana 32ct (it's the first time I use such small count and I'm loving it) 1 x 1. Now enough with the talk and moving to the photos:
After 9 days stitching (6254 stitches of 27750)

And here are my updates on QS Believe:
only three more columns to finish the top pages and reach half of it

and of SK Treasures:
I've started the 2nd page

Sorry for the extra long post,

Happy Stitches :)



Avarice page 2 is now complete. Has taken me longer than I expected but it was quite confetti heavy.
Having a short break from this piece now and moving house! Exciting times ahead.

HAED's BB SAL 2011 - QS Terra (Progress So Far) as of 23.08.2011 by Gizzimomo

Hi Everyone,

I know I haven't posted for a little while but I restarted QS Terra at the beginning of the month and I wanted to share with you how I've got on with her so far as I've just finished Page Four!

Progress So Far

I was originally stitching her on 28ct, 2 over 1 in tent stitch and hated every stitch so despite the fact that I had already stitched the first two pages I decided to start her again using full stitches. So on August 1st I started all over again on 22 ct Ivory Hardanger, 1 over 1 in full stitches..... and I'm SO much happier stitching her now as you can probably see from the progress so far!

First Rose, Christensen

I have quite a bit done in the evenings. It is very tedious work all that green. However, the sleeve is almost done. It runs from now skewed upward. To the shoulder. Then will come the best part I think. The neck and head.

Cheryl's update: Sanctuary of Knowledge (Randal Spangler)

This is my first update for Sanctuary of Knowledge. I absolutely adore this chart, it's wonderful! I guess when I get sick of doing all the confetti in the books I'll go back to doing the lions but for now I'm having fun!

Unicorn Dream - Week 86, Dreams of Gaudí - Week 81

I've been so focused on my "Chuck vs. the Cross Stitch" wip lately that I almost forgot to post the status report of my other wips :D Anyway, I'm in the middle of a confetti storm, however, the legs of the two small unicorns are starting to take shape:

But with Gaudí the only recognizable part apart from all the confetti is a small piece of sky :D

Bottom of the Garden ~ Amy Brown, by Babs

Page 4 of Bottom of the Garden is almost 1/3 done, it's going slow because I'm also stitching some non-Haed projects but every stitch is one I assume ;-)

I've also seen other beautifull Haedcharts but I'm trying to stick to one Haed at a time, they are way too big and still want to have one finished some time.

Keep on the good stitching,

Love, Babs

Roses almost complete

I have almost completed the last rose in my little maiden's hair.  It took such a long time because of all the confetti.  I know that is what gives it the lovely look but still . . . a LOT of confetti!!  Here is what she looks like right now.

Love Blooms

I started a special project that I am very excited about.  I wanted to give my husband something very special for a future wedding anniversary.  We just celebrated our 11th (the photo was taked during our 1st year), so I'm hoping to finish it before our 15th.  I think that sounds reasonable.  So I had a photo of us customed charted by Michele from Haed, and it was named Love Blooms.  I am so happy with the result of the charting. 
This is a pic of the original I sent to Michele,
Since there is a lot of white surrounding us and Michele added some lovely sparkle I have decided to stitch "Us" first, then the Sparklies, and then the white.  So that means I finished, sort of, the first page, the little triangle section you see is the first page finished without the white.....yet!
And then I moved on to the next page, which seems to be my hair!  Lots of different colors in there!
I am happy with my progress, as it has been a couple of hectic weeks!  Next time maybe I will finish another page! (sort of!)
