Decisions, Surprises

I haven't had a lot to blog about in that I hurt my neck on my experimental project and couldn't stitch for a bit. I do have a bit to show on that from before I was hurt, but I haven't taken photo's yet. I also got a little done on my Live Love Laugh and haven't taken pics of that yet either.

I am actually sharing a great surprise I got, an RAK from Dana Dragonheart. Don't you just love that name? It was a real surprise on Friday, when I also was working my first day of having changed shifts at work and it just made the whole day feel sort of special. I feel so blessed and thankful.

You see, being a slow stitcher I decided that one of my favorite charts might actually get stitched if I did it as a mini. Day Night was released as a mini back in July of this year and I put it on my wishlist.

I know Heaven and Earth completely re chart when they make a mini so today I am comparing the mock-ups.
Here is the mock up of the original full sized chart at 400 X 563 stitches.
And here is the Mini mock up at 237 X 334:

Quite a big color difference in them! Both are lovely and they use many of the same colors. I'm still comparing floss lists etc. but thought I'd share just to show the differences in a Full sized and a mini. I've seen lots of questions over the months and thought it might be helpful to those wanting to compare. Both are available at Heaven and Earth Designs.
I'll be back soon with a proper stitching update.

Until then Happy Stitching!

Interesting showing both types of HAED. I wonder how their process works because I have tried to see the difference in Rachel Andersons Amethyst versus the Mini Amethys and I can't tell the difference from their pictures on the website.

Monique, now I'm going to have to compare those two. I found the differences between Soul Mates and Mini Soul mates to be interesting as well, over all both mini's appear 'lighter'. At least on my screen. Off to check the Anderson's now.

Very calming and serene project to stitch.

I think I will enjoy it when I begin it Julie.
