There are quite a few of us from some HAED Facebook groups that caught onto the idea and will be starting something new tomorrow.
This works perfectly with the fact that I'm also about to go on VACATION!! So I'll take my new start along with me.
My new piece is the beautiful chart that Michele of HAED gifted to me....Tamlin. I have all my floss kitted up and my fabric is mostly ready to go (need to add some gridding).
I know I've already posted pictures of it....but I can't help myself from posting them again because I think it is sublime!
This piece is made up of 3 seperate images and the chart has them all together as one. I will be stitching them seperately, as I think I'll enjoy having them framed seperately a bit better. There are better images of it in my last post, if you want to see them close up!
I had high hopes of finishing page 3 of Cathedral before the Olympics began, but I just wasn't able to get enough time in to make my deadline :(
Here's my progress:
I've really enjoyed this page....the lighter colors of the branches in the sunlight are starting to begin. I'll finish this page up when I get back.
This has been a super busy week for me...trying to tie up loose ends for work to ensure nothing blows up while I'm gone, trying to get some stitching time in and getting everything ready for our trip. So what an absolute delight it was when the beautiful Liz (also known as Radidragon on the HAED BB) RAKd me this breathtaking gem:
This is Knock at the Door by Aimee Stewart. The day it was released I fell in love with it.
Now...what you also need to know about this chart is it's the biggest one on the site. It is 875 stitches by 875 stitches. EIGHT HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE! :)
That is 765,625 little x's! On 25 count fabric that measures to be a 35 inch x 35 inch beauty (not counting any border)! I can only hope I can find fabric that is big enough!!
My plan is to power through as many of my WIPs until December, and make this my year end shabang of a start! I say this is my plan, because knowing my will power, it will end up being a new start much sooner than that.
So I'm off for my vacation on Saturday, and will most likely have to have a late WIPocalypse post. I'll jump online to catch up on everyone's blogs and progress whenever I can!
So in the words of the Terminator....... I'll Be Back!
