Hi. My name is Leslie and I'm a new buddy here. I work as an administrator in higher education and I use cross stitching as a stress reliever (along with knitting and writing mysteries). You can find more of my work on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/reitkunst/ - feel free to look through my photos.
This first photo is of a new project: Freebie Trick or Treat by Randall Spangler. It shows a witch riding a broom in front of the moon overtop a house. I'm using 32 ct natural linen and DMC thread, 2 over 2. So far I have completed 374 stitches since February 27th. If you like this one it is still listed as a free chart.
This next photo is of the White Nine Tail Fox (SK) by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law. She's one of my favorite artists and I've been collecting many of her patterns from HAED. I'm using 32 ct white linen with DMC thread. I started this one during 2012 and finally getting back to it. I"m hoping being a HAED buddy will help me to finish some of these.
This third photo is my oldest HAED project. It is The Hermit by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law. This is my progress from 2007 when I last worked on it. While I'm used to working with big patterns (Mirabilia is another favorite designer) I just couldn't get my mind to work around the type of stitching to finish this one. I decided to start on a couple of others and see what happens. White 32 ct linen and DMC thread.
