Romeo and Juliet and new starts

So hello there 🙂 I hope you haven´t forgotten about me.

I finally finished those 2 pages of Romeo and Juliet, I was working on the last time I posted. Now I have only 2 whole pages and 2 partial pages left.

I have 2 new HAED starts which I wanna show you. I decided to try out tent stitching (half cross stitch) and see if I´ll manage to complete my HAED projects faster. And I have to admit it is a lot faster. I´m still not sure if I like the look of the stitches but I want to finish those two and see how they look completed.

Here is the one I started in May.

In May, I went to Minneapolis MN, with my daughter. She was participating in a dance competition and did extremely well. Of course I went to both JoAnn and Michaels, and bought DMC threads for 4 new HAED´s 🙂 Below is a picture of my purchase… well… a part of it 🙂

And I totally forgot to tell you I will be attending HAEDCon 2017 in Seaside, OR in October. I´m so excited to meet all the other HAED´s addicts 🙂

    Yay Erla congratulations on finishing 2 pages on Romeo and Juliet, it looks fantastic. So close to a finish now. Well done. I love the design Early Visit! It is such a beautiful design. I think the tenting is going well. The coverage is excellent, even with the dark colours. Keep going I’m dying to see how it stitches up. Congrats to your daughter for doing well in her competition. I like how you rewarded yourself by buying floss, that’s is so supportive. Love it. Very exciting about attending HAEDcon, takes lots of pics and let us know how it all was.
