Stitching Update

I picked up 'Dream' and 'Believe' from the framers today:

I'm very happy with the result, and I hope Rachel and Sammy will be too...

I started stitching my first HAED the other day - QS Scarlet Witch (Carol Vinson).  I've managed to do about 500 stitches so far.  It's my first design stitching over 1 on 25ct fabric, using 1 thread, and I'm also parking my threads for the first time, too...I am gridding the fabric to help placement, which is also a first - Lots of firsts in this WIP!


I've got my Mermaid packed away, ready for my trip tomorrow...

I've bought some more stash this week (Oops!): Blue Ribbon Designs 'Schoolgirl Samplings', LHN 'Needle and Thread' with Crescent Colours and Pillow, and SEBA Designs 'Dimond' with Dinky Dyes threads:




I think that will have to be my stash limit until I go to Harrogate in November!

I'll update some more on Sunday...

Your framed finishes look great. Good kluck with your HAED. I've not got enough courage to start one but think they look incredible.

Happy stitching to you.
