Friday after work I was catching up on emails and I noticed I had recieved one from Michele, the owner of Heaven and Earth Designs. It was titled, "Giftie". I opened it up and I just know I had a HUGE grin on my face at that moment......She had gifted me a chart I have been drooling over, Tamlin by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law (SPML). Michele gifted quite a few folks charts in the last little while....she is such an awe-inspiring woman!
Here's a picture of the chart:
Now the image of the chart doesn't do the artwork justice, because it's so small.....so here are pictures of the 3 images that make up this chart, from SPML's site.
The first image on the left is called The Rose:
The middle image is called The Faery Host:
And the last image is called The Knight:
"Tam Lin is about a young man who is the captive of the faeries, and the young woman who rescues him. The main character, depending on your viewpoint, is either the young woman, who becomes pregnant by her enchanted lover and must rescue him before the faeries can sacrifice him, or the young man who had been living with the faeries and wishes to escape to live in the human world. The story deals with transformations, courage, and the relationship between the faeries and the mortals" - Tam-Lin.org
07/27/2012: Many HAED stitchers on the HAED BB and in the HAED Addiction FB group decided to have an "Olympic Start" piece. The idea being that you start it during this year's Olympics with the goal of finishing it by the next one (Summer or Winter, up to you). I chose to start this chart for my Olympic Start!
|Not getting much stitching in while watching the Olympics and being on vacation!|
|Finally half of page 1!|
|Page 1 complete - I love how it looks exactly like the artwork!|
