New wip and a gift arrived

As mentioned in my previous post, I started a new HAED. I have completed the first 10hrs on it and I have finished almost all the white stitches in page 1. I'm doing it on 32ct Jobelan, 1 over 1 ~ tent stitch and using the "parking method" for the first time. I've seen Carol use it on her HAEDs so I decided to give it a try, so far so good :)

Como les comenté en mi post anterior, comencé un nuevo HAED. Ya completé un total de 10 horas en él y he bordado ya casi todo lo que va en blanco de la página 1. Lo estoy realizando en 32ct Jobelan, 1 sobre 1 ~medio punto y estoy usando el "método de parqueo de hilos por primera vez. He visto a Carol usarlo cuando borda HAEDs así que decidí probarlo, hasta ahora todo va bien :)



Today I heard from Anna S., the birthday gift I sent her had arrived :) . I read in her blog that she liked pink and saw in her wishlist some LHN designs so I decided to make this little pillow using
a design from Little House Needleworks, Rose Sampler. I received this chart as part of my birthday gift from Mary last year and thought this would be a perfect opportunity to stitch it :) I think it turned out lovely and I'm happy that Anna likes it :)

Hoy Anna S. me escribio para decirme que había recibbido el regalo de cumpleaños que le había enviado :) Leí en su blog que le gustaba el color rosa y ví en su "wishlist" varios diseños de LHN, así que decidí hacerle una pequeña almohada usando un diseño de Little House Needleworks llamado Rose Sampler. Recibí este chart de Mary como parte de mi regalo de cumpleaños el año pasado y me pareció que esta era la oportunidad perfecta para bordarlo :) Me parece que quedó lindo y me agrada saber que a Anna S. le gustó :)

Your gift is absolutely adorable. What is a tent stitch? I am amazed that you stitch such a big decision (a HAED none theless) over 1! How do you manage to get the stitches lying properly? Enjoy your stitching and congratulations on your progress. It's amazing what you have stitched in 10 hours. Ann
