Row of Love WIP

Ok, here is where I'm at with this design. I've worked on it for about 75hrs now. I'm glad to see one of the bears has a face now -*grin*-
I don't know if you can tell by the picture, but this design has really bright colors, which I'm totally in love with.

This weekend I'm joining the HAED General SAL. I'll start with Rune Gypsy, since I already have all the floss for this design. I'll post a picture of my progress on Monday. After that I'll go back to work on the Mirabilia's Mermaids.

Someone asked me if anyone stitch the Heaven and Earth designs, I must say that I only know of one person who has ever finished these designs, but there are many people working on them. There is actually a board, that is very active, dedicated to HAED. If anyone is interested here you can see other people's WIPs and visit the board: HAED BB, go to the "Stiching Support" section.

Mermaids of the Deep Blue WIP

This is how they look at 50hrs. I spent a lot of hours stitching all those beads this week. There are a lot more beads than I have thought, but it's totally worth it. In real life they are very sparkly.
This is a very fun and fast design to stitch so far.

Now I'm back to working with Row of Love...

New stash!

I bought two new charts from HAED today, they're having a sale this weekend. Eventhough I haven't stitch their designs yet I just love how other people's WIPs look so far. I'm gonna start mine in the next couple of weeks, I just need to put a few more hours on my current WIPs.
Anyway, these are the designs I bought:
  • Oxigen by Linda Ravenscroft

    I'm planning to stitch only half of this design.
  • Midnight Orchard by Ian Daniels.

    My sister hates this design, but I just really like it. And since I'm the one who is going to stitch it I went ahead and bought it.
    We try to agree in what we are going to stitch, but this time I just didn't listen.

WIP: Row of Love

This past week I've been working on Row of Love. I've put about 52hrs on it now.
I'm really enjoying this project, eventhough there is a lot of color changes. But I think it's really worth it, since the bears furr looks more "real" because of it.

(Sorry the pictures is dark)
Now I'm back working with the mermaids, I've done some progress on that one too. I'll probably post an update by the end of the weekend.
I've also recieved my threads for the HAED chart I want to start. There are 50 different colors on that one!!!
I'm trying very hard not to start it, I need to finish one of my current projects. Otherwise, one will probably become an UFO.

WIP: Mermaids of the Deep Blue

This is my progress at about 24hrs. I'm stitching it on a Hand-dyed Silkweaver 32ct Lugana: Wandering Ivy. I decided to to use a fabric with green shades, since the ocean where I live ¡s green rather than blue. I've lived 5 minutes from the beach all my life and the pacific ocean has never looked blue. And since that's the one closer to me I thought I would use it as a reference.
This time, I'm adding the beads as I go, because last time I hated leaving all the beads to the end (Crystal Christmas). And this design has lots of beads aswell.

And Anneke because you asked me this, the Row of Love project is medium size compared to the HAED chart. Rune Gypsy is a 16 page long chart!! So it will probably take me a loooong time to complete. But I just love the design so much that I have to do it.

Row of Love

Because I got my new Mirabilia chart today, I just had to start it. So I'll post a pic of where I'm at on "Row of Love". This is at about 30hrs.

I'll be rotating between these two. And in a few weeks I'll be adding my HAED chart to the rotation

More stash!!

I came home today from classes, only to find out our latest order from ABC Stitch Therapy had arrived. I was so excited... because I knew inside tha package was Mirabilia's Mermaid of the Deep Blue my sister bought for me as a gift for my birthday (charts, beads and treasures... the best sister ever!!!).

I also recieved HAED's Rune Gypsy by Stepahanie Roberts... I'm gonna give it a try with this big project...I just love the picture...I only hope I don't get bored so I can finish it.
