It's been awhile and I haven't posted since I started. As you can see I'm making some good progress! This was as of 11/22/14 and the first 2 pages finished, I'm currently almost finished with page 3!  This is 1 over 1 full X on 25ct. The pattern is Christmas Dreams by Dona Gelsinger. I'm now seeing the first of the candles and the left edge of mantle in page 3 :-)

 Thanks for letting me take part!

Shoot the Moon - Darlene Hamelin


My name is Darlene and I am attempting my first HAED design, Shoot the Moon by Michele Sayetta.  I am stitching on 25 count Lugana, over one stitch using one strand of floss.  So far I am pleased with my progress and have learn allot about stitching such an complex pattern.   I have been stitching for over twenty years and still enjoy finding challenging patterns.  I have recently had back surgery and have found myself with lots of time to sit and stitch.  I have learn a couple of things about stitch HAED design and I am already searching for my next project.  Question has anyone use two strands of floss on 25 count over one?



Here is my progress so far!!!!!

Hi everyone - my name is Debbie and I live in the UK and this is my first post to Haed. I have been stitching for years but only found HAED a couple of years ago. My current project is marchetti's Tarot of Fools which I started on 18 November 2014. I am currently loving this as it is stitching up really quickly. I am stitching it on 16 count aida in a really light blue. Hopefully with the Christmas break coming up I can really crack on with it.

HAED Shore Line Village

Here is a long overdue update on Shore line.  It took so long because it was sky....  So much sky.... got boring at times, but I kept on..  Here is the result.

The page I just finished:

And the whole piece so far!
I hope the next page does not take this long and is a little more interesting.  I understand the need for the pages and pages of sky,  and love the end result, but really dont like stitching them!
Cant wait to see the next page!
