Autumn Fairy - an update

From Monday until Friday I spent my time stitching Autumn Fairy and now I'm on the very last page :) This fairy looks so much more stunning than she does in print :)

Charlie Bear SAL - Weekend 3

Here is my progress after another weekend of stitching the Charlie Bear Alphabet with my friend Heather.  I managed a whopping 9 hours and 15 minutes of stitching on it this weekend :)

Charlie Bear SAL - Weekend 2

As you know from my post last week, I'm doing a SAL with Heather, a great friend of mine.  This is the second week that I have spent stitching Charlie Bear and have very nearly completed the first letter.

I can't quite remember how long I spent stitching on it, but I managed to finish the bear and only have the bottom of C left to do and I can move onto B :)  Here is how Charlie Bear is looking:


As you know I've been pondering about starting a new HAED since I started Tickle My Tummy.  Well, just after christmas I ordered the threads and material for my new HAED: Moon Goddess by Marta Dahlig.

This is the design:

I'm stitching this design 2 over 1 half stitch as I learned from doing my last HAED, that I didn't like the coverage 1 over 1 gave.  Here is my progress after spending just 2 days stitching on it

Autumn Fairy update

Hi all!! I have a good few projects on the go right now and I've been alternating between them all.  First up is an update on my Autumn Fairy, here is how she is looking now.

Charlie Bear SAL - Weekend 1

Well, as mentioned in my "2012 projects" section of my blog, I mentioned that I would be starting a Charlie Bear SAL with a great friend of mine, Heather.

After the first weekend of stitching, this is how far I got with it.

I have to say though that on Saturday I didn't do any stitching at all as I wasn't feeling very well.  The above progress is a measly 5 hours and 50 minutes work lol.

I now can't wait until next weekend when I can pull it back out again as it is so lovely to stitch.
