Model progress & HAED start




Now that the holidays are over, I am plugging away on the model I am doing for Stephanie. It is such a beautiful design. I have never stitched something this large on 28 ct., over 1. So, it is taking me longer than I anticipated. I really have got to get a LOT done. I am devoting most of my stitching time to it, but I also am involved in a couple SAL's. I am doing the Beatrix Potter SAL & a small group of us are doing a HAED SAL. My piece is the Little Drummer Boy.
The HAED SAL is on Fridays. I was out of town last Friday, so I did my Friday work on Monday. I had 218 stitches done. I worked on it this afternoon while the little guy I babysit was napping. I now have 400 stitches in it!! Wow, moving right along, huh?!?!!?
I will devote more time to it, after I finish the model. It is my priority right now.
Thanks for looking & thanks for commenting! It is so good to see that people read my blog!!!!!
