New Start Witching Hour by Lisa Parker

Well I decided to put away Lavender Moon and SK Masquerade.  I just can't get the hang of stitching on linen.  Sometime I will start them up again on 18 ct Aida.  So I am stitching on The Witching Hour finishing the top two rows on the first page.  Not much to see since it is mostly black.  I have stitched 1993 stitches so far I have the first two rows done and now working on the third.  I started in the left upper corner of the pattern. There is still not a lot to see since it is almost all black. I am stitching this one with Ivory 18 ct Aida. I really am enjoying myself stitching this one. :)

"Bast Cat" by Michele Sayetta

I decided to start with one of my smallest HAED to work on ( 20 pages) so I don't feel overwhelmed with the size of the HAED.   I have two other HAEDs which consist of 49 pages.     This is "Bast Cat" designed by Michele Sayetta.

This is stitched on 18 ct, 2 over one, with DMC threads.   This is where I am at right now.  I just started this morning.   I am going to set a goal to stitch at least 10 square block a day.

Lily of the Valley: Lisa N.

I'm testing out the Blogger app, so hopefully this posts correctly. 

Lots of free time here in Saudi at the moment; I'm currently at 3217 stitches & am convinced there's no way I'll finish this before I die! But I'm still plugging along!

Socialsue - "Humble Adobe"

This is 32 in wide of 28 ct Laugana and I am stitching 2 over 2.   This is HAED "Humble Adobe" design.  I am feeling a bit overwhelmed but I hope that I can stay with it and try to complete this design.   There are 49 pages. 

This is what the design is supposed to look like when I am finished stitching it.

3 February 2013: Sistine Chapel

Lily of the Valley: Lisa N.

I did a very minor start on this back in April 2010. I thought I'd take it out & give it another go, but it scares me! Look how big it is! Yes, this is my first HAED.

Here is the picture...

...and here is my false start from all those years ago:

The fabric is moss green lugana, so I will be stitching a lot of green on green!
