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 🙂

Romeo and Juliet

After being neglected for 4 whole years I picked it back up. I´m really enjoying stitching this one after such a long time. And this time I won´t put it down until it´s finished.

December 31

As this is the last day of the year I wanted to share updates of my progresses.

I started a stitch-a-long with my friend Sveina. We both fell in love with Hannah Lynn´s Punch of color girl 12. Here is how far I´ve got. I was really aiming to finished her eye but unfortunately I didn´t make it 😦 However her eyelashes are there 🙂

Here is my status of QS Meet Dragonfly. She is really confetti heavy so it will take me forever to finish that page.

I also want to show you my jar of ort´s from 2016. I only started collecting my ort´s in May after we moved into our new house. Pretty good collection though for only 8 months 🙂

I have decided to give away some of my stash. So occasionally I will post Give away on my blog. It will be original patterns which I have already stitched and don´t need anymore or patterns/kits I know I won´t stitch and I´d rather give them a new home.

My first Give away will be tomorrow so be sure to check in again 🙂

Most of hair done

I finished most of her hair this weekend. I think she is turning out so nicely.

I´m a little torn whether to keep going with her and start her face or rotate to something else for a while.

FOF 14 -one side done

I finished one side of her hair last night. I think it looks so pretty.  Now I will do the other side. Have to admit though I´m a little bored of all the browns. Can´t wait to do her face 😀

I got a little bit more done 🙂 I feel like her hair looks a bit dark compare to the artwork but we´ll see how it will turn out.

Mini Myra demanded my attention again. So I completed her body and now I have only the background left.

In March I went to London to meet my Facebook friends Jessica and Tami from USA. Together we went to a stitching show in Olympia and of course we also did some sight-seeing.

I did some shopping at the stitching show. I bought Michael Powell´s Place de Marché.

Mini Myra – beautiful face

Her face is finally completed! She looks so beautiful!

Since I needed to replace her on the q-snap I´m able to show you a full picture. I´m a bit torn whether to stitch the rest of her body first or finish the background.

Background…

It´s me again! 🙂

I´m finally stitching again but unfortunately not as much as I used too. I have been working on the background on Mini Myra.  Now I will start working on her face! YAY!!! Can´t wait 🙂
