Just stitching. And yay, more than 20 followers!

Work and home, work and home. Not doing much else, finally recovering and back to my slow but steady stitching routine when I can. I'm looking forward to the Holidays. I thought I would update a with a few pics. I haven't been working to rotation while I've been feeling so ill.

I've done a little on Mini Eternal Promise. It got two days in Oct. and so far only 2 days in Nov. so there isn't much to show and I didn't take another picture yet.

Here is Mini Soul Mates. I'm still enjoying stitching this one and it is the piece my DH likes best at the moment and I am making sure to give it time each week so it will be ready in a year or so for his man cave, should it ever get made.



The loss of detail is surely noticeable but not as bad as I'd feared and so far I am encouraged to continue as I am really enjoying it. What I've seen of other mini's has been really encouraging, for those who have asked. I've seen some good work on them on Facebook and I'm looking forward to seeing more of these finished so we can have some viable comparisons.


I'm hoping to finish QS Dragon Soul sometime in the next 2-3 months so it is rotating in more frequently.  Here is the latest update pic.





So in my slow and steady way I am making progress and I'm happy with the results. Sometimes I do envy those who stitch faster, or who can stitch for several hours a day. I wouldn't be able to stitch for long periods anyway with the pain, so it works out, but sometimes I'm still envious. lol.

I can't really begin kitting up the next thing yet because A. I can't spend the money right now, and B. I have no idea what the next thing is going to be. There are too many choices. Also, there is that HAED BB SAL to be thought about. Really looking forward to see what the charts are this year, and then I can decide if I want to take part. I barely managed to resist last year. They do have a tendency to give a good choice of charts.

Happy Stitching this week while we are all preparing to get ready for the Holidays.

Thanks for the encouragement ladies. Kate, the progress seems better lately, usually I'm so slow.
Thank you Julie. I've admired those ladies too, and I have to say I am thrilled to be called one of them!

I don't know how you put up with some of the people on the fB boards. So catty! There was one just yesterday. It wasn't directed at you or me, but yuck, I'm so sick of that stuff. I really think I need to drop off the Official HAED page on FB. Maybe join the BB everyone talks about. Is it as bad?

Katie, I thought that was on another board, and not the official one. One of the private ones I mean. Anyway, I just completely don't pay attention to those posts. I think the people who do that do it for attention.
On a brighter note, the HAED BB is a great place with absolutely none of that sort of thing. The moderators are simply wonderful. I highly recommend you try it out. They are closed at the moment due to the SAL sign ups but will be open again in about a week or week and a half.
