A rather large update :)

Well, seeing as it has been a little while I thought it about time I posted an update on my two main projects.  The first update being my Summer Fairy, I must admit I haven't picked her up in a few weeks as I've been working on finishing the first page of my H.A.E.D and also have been working my butt off doing Uni work, but alas, my course is nearly over for this year :D

Although it may not seem like there is much difference, there is due to me starting the backstitch on the wings and the ribbons aswell as the little butterfly.

I am proud to say that I have also started to get used to the french knots, they were my nightmare. Here is a close up of the butterfly with the french knots

I have to say they just make the butterfly :) Hopefully with a bit more time and practice, I aim to nail them completely.

Now, onto another update. My H.A.E.D - I have a page finish and a new page has been started :D I have to say I didn't think I would complete a single page when I started this H.A.E.D back in March of this year, but alas, I have done it :D

Here is how it looks

It is really starting to look fab :) Although working with dark colours does get rather difficult without natural light. There are currently 6600+ stitches done there at the moment, cannot remember for the life of me how many there are left, but I'm still a long way off completing it :D

Well, that is it for my stitching projects, now onto the TUSAL, which I forgot to post on the day of the New Moon, but I did remember to take a picture lol. Here is my TUSAL for the last New Moon

I'm not entirely sure when the next New Moon is, so if anybody knows, please let me know haha. I think that is enough from me for now.

If you have stuck with me so far, thank you.

Hopefully with the next post, I will have the backstitch on my fairy up to date with where I am stitching wise.

Until next time,

Stay safe, warm, and happy stitching.



  1. Well done Steph, its looking fabulous! Keep up the good work. Xx

  2. yup..it is really looking so lovely..stunning stitching..both of them..
    well done dear and happy stitching xx

  3. Gorgeous stitching on both Stephie! A question about your HAED - on what count are you stitching it and are you doing it 1 over 1 or 2 over 2?

  4. Thoeria - I am stitching it on 25 count Magic Guide Evenweave 1 over 1. I think though that if I do another one, I will do it 2 over 2 for more cover. :)

  5. Well done to you on your haed and fairy! Looking fantastic!! You have put me to shame with your haed 'speed'.
