Unicorn Dream - Week 129, Dreams of Gaudí - Week 124

This week I've cheated a little in favor of Gaudí, so there's not much progress to show with the Unicorn.

However this way I've managed to finish the 14th page of Gaudí! Fortunately the next page, no. 5 will also stitch up pretty fast! :)

College, Page 9!

So I finally finished page 9. Took a little longer due to a cross country move. But it's done now and I no longer have to stitch this in secret! Hope you like.

Stitched on 25 count Evenweave, 1 over 1. 


Princess Izzy as of 25th July 2012 (6 Pages Done) by Gizzimomo

 Hey Everyone,

Even though I'm virtually melting in this heatwave the UK's going through at the moment I finally managed to get my page done on Izzy. I must say that I thought it would never be done as I had several days of not doing a stitch at all but YAAAYY I did it!

Page 6 Done

Total Progress So Far (After 6 Pages)
She's looking sooooo good although I was a bit worried about the orange stripes and spots on the edge of her dress but from a distance it looks perfectly fine and overall she just looks simply beautiful! So now I'm going to go down a page and work back across the bottom so I'll have done a 9 page square.

See you soon!

I'm sorry it has been so long since I posted, but hopefully the pic will make up for it.  This is my progress on one of the newly released Spangler SKs.  This is Effects of Caffeine. 28ct, 1 over 1.

Just giving an update on the Milk and Cookies stocking that I am working on. Have completed pages 7, 8, 9. My children can't believe how realistic it looks. I cant wait to get pages 4 and 5 done.

Avarice P8 and QS Wizard of Oz finish


Been working hard to finish QS Wizard of Oz in time for a birthday last week. I finished it with a day to spare.

QS Wizard of Oz (Gustafson) Stitched 1 over 1 on 25ct Lugana. The piece measures approx 4 x 4 inches.

I completed page 8 of Avarice too. Was a faster page as it was mainly block stitching. Some confetti comes back for page 9 but its ok. The rain we are having in the UK at the moment means more stitchy time!

 Again I am stitching this 1 over 1 on 25ct Lugana

Jolly Old Fellow

Hello.  I'm Elfie (Lynne F in Australia).  I haven't posted here since July 2010, when I was working on page 8 of Jolly Old Fellow.  I have now (at last!) finished Jolly Old Fellow, so I wanted to put in a pic, in case any of you remember my project.  I started JOF in January 2009, and worked on him for some months each year for a total of 13 months over the 4 years.  This year I finished pages 14 to 36.  I am so pleased to have finally put in those final stitches, and now I am keen to have him framed.  JOF was my first HAED, and it has certainly been a steep learning curve for me over the past 4 years.  This project has taught me lots of things about myself – many of which I would have preferred to remain ignorant about!  I do love the finished Santa – especially when viewed from a distance, when he seems to be three dimensional.

Progress on Touching the Hem of God

Here's my latest progress...a decent amount to show this time.  I'm showing two pics because my camera reacted to Miss Pollyrose's white fur by lightening the picture.  So the pic without her shows the progress and the pic with her shows a very accurate representation of the fabric and floss colors.  Thanks, Polly!

The project is one thread over one.  Full cross on 25 ct lugana.
