At Last!

At long last I have finished page 1 of Heaven and Earth Designs Winter; artwork by Sara Butcher. I started it back in November for the New Start SAL on the HAED ezboard and this page seems have taken forever! Having said that I was working on getting QS Blossom finished as it was for a Christmas present so I haven't really had that much time to stitch on it. Hopefully I will get on better now but my aim at one page a month is not going to see the light of day so there's no hope of me finishing it in 3 years! ( one page a month, 36 pages = 3 years! LOL!) So here it is! I love the way this stitches up. Sara's art converts really well to cross stitch and Michele of HAED does an excellant job charting it.

When I'd finished page 1 I moved onto Chatelaine Summer Afternoon and managed to get quite a bit of that stitched. I decided to work on one page at a time ( 6 pages of chart) so that I know where I am ( hmmm!) and am getting on well with the first page. That is what I'll be working on Monday- Friday this week.

I just wanted to say thank you to those of you who comment on my blog and also those who drop by and read. It means a lot to me. Also thank you for voting in my poll! I'm leaving it there for the rest of the week as the slot in my rotation doesn't start until Saturday so I'll see what the winner is then! LOL! At the moment the clear leader is Heirloom Embroideries Peachy Biscornu!

Hello Sally,

I am just letting you know that within the next 24 hours, I will be making my Space private again... for my own sanity, more than anything else... I thought I'd better let you know, just in case you encounter any problems trying to access my Space. All will be explained after I've gone private.

It will be worth the three years, if it takes that long. It's GORGEOUS!

Oh, my! I love your ticker! I need one of those, too, because everytime I get near canvases or threads, they pop magically into my hands! Love your blog!
