Faces of Faery 88 – Finished

Faces of Faery 88 is finally finished! Don´t you think she looks amazing! I´m so happy with the way she turned out and she was an absolute  joy to stitch. I think it´s time for a happy-dance now 🙂

A page finish and HAED goals for 2012

I have another page finish and now there is only one partial page left. I´m so close to finishing! YAY! The dragon´s wing is  absolutely a joy to stitch, minimum confetti,  so I should be able to finish it in no time. Then I will move on to work on the  dragon´s tail!

I listed my goals for 2012 on HAED Bulletin Board. I decided to keep my goals simple and achievable. I will probably start something new as well but I have not decided which ones yet.
So my goals are:
Finish Faces of Faery 88
Complete 2 pages of A Princess is Born
Complete 2 pages of Romeo and Juliet
Better get on with it then! 🙂 

I can see a dragon!

The dragon is finally appearing and I just love the way his eyes turned out. I will not be able to put her down now until she´s finished!

I will not be starting the HAED BB 2012 SAL until this one is finished. The piece I chose for the SAL is SK Blue Moon by Linda Rafenscroft. Can´t wait to show you the first update!

FOF 88 and a new HAED start

YAY! Finally a new update of Faces of Faery 88. She is going so slow for some reason but she´s got both eyes now! Now I just need to finish her hair and then
I´m on to the cute purple dragon. Can´t wait!

OK I wasn´t going to buy or start another HAED until FOF 88 was finished.  But when I saw A Princess is Born by Hannah Lynn had been charted I just had to have it….and start it!!! It´s absolutely my favorite artwork by Hannah Lynn. I have only been working on it for 2 hours or so but I already love working on it.

More of Faces of Faery 88

Faces of Faery 88 is going great! The plan was to work on her other eye but somehow I started to work on her cheek and then the other cheek and so I just decided to finish them both along with her nose and mouth. Now I can´t wait to finish her other eye! 🙂 She will be so pretty!

Faces of faery 88 WIP

Just a quick update of Faces of Faery 88. I have been working on her lately but need to put her down now to finish 2 more Round Robins. But here is what she looks like now.  I really can´t wait to pick her up again!

My 2 new HAED starts

I just want to share with you pictures of my 2 latest HAED starts. They are both by the same designer Jasmine Becket-Griffith. I´m totally in love with her designs and I have few other patterns by her that I will start working on later.

While on our holiday in June I started stitching Faces of Faery 88. I have only worked on her with 1 color but have already completed 2800 stitches.

In May I started working on Sienna Dragonling. I haven´t done that much but here is a picture anyway.

I have been busy lately stitching on Cindy´s RR. With Cindy´s permission I did 2 parts for her and therefore completed the RR. I posted it last week but haven´t heard if she has received it so I´m unable to post pictures just yet 🙂
