Sorry I haven't updated lately, but my needle has been flying. I have to restart CtS. I had emailed Michelle at HAED about there being so much black. She agreed it was too dark and reworked the pattern and sent me a new one (now that's customer service). However, since I was already on page 2, I can't just frog it, so I'll need to get a new piece of fabric. Already checked the stash and I don't have anything large enough. So until then, and because I needed some HAED to work on for the SAL, I pulled out FoS. Here is where I started.And here is where I am tonight. I'm almost done with page 10. I've done almost a whole page in a week. Boy howdy, if I could keep that up all the time I would have this done in less than a year, but there are too many other things to stitch on to dedicate myself to this alone. I'll keep going on it for now though. Maybe I can get most of page 11 done before the 1st of May next week. That's when I'll take up AW again. Now, I must get back to stitching. See ya.

Part 4 of AW

Part 4 of AW is now done! It has tons of beads. Now I can work on something else. Hmmm what should I work on? Maybe I'll take the night off and wait to stitch on CtS for the HAED SAL tomorrow.

Thursday SAL

Results of last night's HAED SAL. When looking at the chart and what I had marked off, I didn't think I had put that much in. However, looking back at the previous post, I did put quite a lot in. I really love this piece. There may be a lot of confetti stitching, but it is worth it when you look at it.

Tomorrow is Stitch and Bitch with March. She invited a couple of people from her office. I hope they come. The more the merrier!

Happy Easter everyone!

I finished page 1 of CtS during the Our Friends' HAED SAL. I was able to put close to another 300 stitches in on page 2. All black! I've used almost a whole skein of black so far. That's a lot of black!
And now, AW part 4. FREAKING BEADS! There are, if I counted right, 160 beads in this one section. I have to do that three more times. It took me hours to do. It's beautiful, but, yowzer!

Have a good weekend stitching!
