Finished the 2nd page.

I've finished the second page. Quite excited because you'll get to see the beginning of Lancelot and Guinevere on the next page. There'll be people as well as wall in the stitching.
Loving seeing everyones progress.

I will stitching again soon, sick

In the first week of December at work I  very hard bumped my elbow. I've been home for 5 weeks.
At that time I had sometimes a strange aching pain in my heel. But the pain was with the painkillers for my elbow under control. Now that I no longer need them for my elbow, the heel burst out. That appears to be a bursitis. Wow what does that hurt.  Now after two days with the pain relief I can just lay back the foot.
With the elbow unfortunately I could not stitch. Now I'm sprawled on the couch to relieve the heel and it is not convenient to stitch.
I am reading, The Laws of Magic, by Terry Goodkind. Very pretty intense stories. I am now working on the fourth law. Each book there are six hundred pages. I believe there are twelve books. Well, I have a while.

College of Magical Knowledge - Page 5!

Hey all,

I finished a 5th page of College of Magical Knowledge this morning.

It is stitched on 25 count antique white Evenweave, 1 over 1 with DMC.

Current date of hopeful, but not very likely completion (and framing)
is Christmas of this year, but we'll see how I do.

Thanks for looking and happy stitching!

One week later on Dragon Knot 2

I've worked only on Dragon Knot 2.  I am determined to get it done this year!  I am going to continue to work on it till I get bored.  Then of course, I have 2 or 3 other HAEDs I can turn to!

Here's last week's progress pic:

Here's this week's progress picture:

I unfortunately didn't get a good picture taken but you can see some of the other colors, yellows, purples, greens, and blues starting to be used.  

My plan is to continue to work on this project this week.  I'm hoping to get a page done soon!  Even if it is one of those 1/4 pages.  These stitches are over two pages, so we shall see!

QS Siberian Forest

I have been away for awhile stitching non HAEDs so that's why I've not been good about posting my Haed updates!  But I did start the new year with a new start QS Siberian Forest.  This beauty is part of the Free Sal in the BB.  I am so happy to be back to stitching my HAEDs.  I have made some progress on him.  I cross country so it will take awhile for the picture to emerge.  First here is what he will look like when finished
And here is what I have so far
I am really enjoying working on this one!
Happy Stitching!

KellyS - Dragon Stocking Update

I finished another 10 rows on Page 8 and started on the next 10 rows up.  The treasure chest is almost finished!!

Dragon Knot 2 Update

It has been quite a while since I posted any HAED updates.  I am hoping to be posting a lot more as I try to finish up/work on the projects I currently have going on!

This 1st week of 2012 I spent working on Dragon Knot.  I have about 6 pages left, 3 of which are more like 1/4 pages.  So I hope to finish soon, although I am a slow stitcher!

The last time I posted an update was back in June of 2011.


Ballerina Sisters


Here is a new page complete with the start of the new year. I wish you a happy New Year 2012.

The 3rd page make me feel better about it, not easy to see the result when you have the nose above and with the dark colors, but I'm now sure it will be very pretty.

Here is where I am :

See you soon for another update.

The Return of a long neglected Lancelot & Gwen

I last worked on this in April last year, so it's been neglected for quite a long time, but I'm loving working on it again.
Hope everyone had a brilliant Christmas and New Year and have lots of fun and exciting stitching plans for 2012. I didn't get much stitching done over the break due to family commitments and a wedding, but I've come back to me stitching with a new dedication, so I can probably cope with that, the end justifies the mean!

New Start...Faery 2 by Nadia Strelkina

This is my all-time favorite HAED so far.  I'm stitching it on 20 ct. evenweave, 2 over 1.  I love the blue and greens.  It takes me a couple months to stitch a page so this is another long term commitment.  Hope everyone is having a Blessed New Year !!!

HAED's Mini Semiyar as of 4th January 2012 (Pages Three and Four Done) TOP ROW COMPLETED by Gizzimomo

Hey everyone,

I know I've been a bad blogger again but things have just been so hectic recently but now things are settling down again I should be able to get back on track!

Here's the latest shots of Semiyar....
As of 2nd January 2012 (Page Three Done)

Total Progress So Far

As of 4th January 2012 (Partial Page Four Done)

Total Progress So Far - TOP ROW COMPLETED
..... so as you can see the top row of Semiyar is totally finished and I'm chuffed to bits with him. I was worried about page four as there seemed to be a couple of rather random splodges of white next to the neck of the lute but when you look at the total progress shot you can see exactly what they are and they are definately part of the lute itself! He'll be going on haitus for a spell now so I can make a start on QS Lovers for the HAED BB SAL as I need a bit of colour in my life. I may try to finish Phuan afterwards and get him out of the way and off of the WIPocalypse goals but we will see.

I'll see you guys very soon!
