HAED stitching

I have been stitching HAED since I last posted. Red Poppy suddenly needed all my attention and I really love how she´s turning out. Not so long now until I´ll finish her.

December 1st I decided to work on SK Sunny since I have to post another picture of her on HAED bulletin board before the end of the month. The flower took forever and I´m so happy to have finally finish it! Now I just need to finish her hat and then I can start working on her face.

Stitchy weekend away and more

I spent last weekend in a summer cabin in Úthlíð with 2 of my stitchy friends Hafrún and Sveina. We really had a great time, we stitched a lot, laughed a lot, ate good food and relaxed in the hot tub with a glass or two of white wine. Here we are really focusing on our stitching.

I started something new in the cabin. It´s called Moon of your own and I´m going to make a pillow out of it for my daughter. I finished the girl´s head and the stars around her in the cabin but this is what she looks like now.

In the end this will be a picture of a girl sitting on a moon. It´s so colorful and pretty.

Before our trip to the cabin I had been working on few things. I started this piece Petite House. I´m half way done and just need to finish the first floor.

I´ve also made some progress on SK Sunny by HAED. I really needed to put her down for a while since the flower in her hat is a total B***H to stitch. LOL!

I was working on a mermaid piece in 2008. All of a sudden I had the urge to pick it up again. This is how she looked when I put her down in 2008.

And this is how she looks today. As you can see there is a baby appearing in her arms.
I have now put her down again.

Bumble bee and a new HAED start

I just can´t put my needle down these days and so I have another finish.  It´s the Bumble bee in the Garden Party series from CCN which I actually started in April.  I wanted to do something that I could finish soon and so I decided it was time to finish this one.

Now I have finished 3 out of 4 and I have only the Butterfly left. I think I will start it soon but it might take a while to finish it.

I have a new HAED start! I´m taking part in July-Dec Freebie SAL on HAED Bulletin board. It started July 1st and we had 5 pieces to choose from. I chose SK Sunny just because I love all the vibrant colours in her. Here is how she will look like when she´s finished.

And her is my start after 2 hours of stitching. I better keep on going!

Stitched 1 over 1 on 28 ct white linen

Finally here is a July birthday ATC I stitched for Line who lives in Abu Dhabi. I hope she will like it 🙂
