Sneak Previews

Since I cant stitch i'm going to show you the terrible updates i have made, some are not worth the photo, but i need to finish (or start) the baby sampler as i think its the christening next month.

                                     This is what it is supposed to look like when i have finished

This is what it looks like at the moment.

See terrible, i am hoping that it will spur me on

This is what i have done on Paradisal Bird, since i started it

i don't like it, i don't know if its because i don't like the colour of the evenweave and if it was white it would show more, but i chose this because of the dark greens that are in it, i didn't want them showing through, but maybe if i did a bit on it i would get back into it.

here is the progress i made on Dreaming On The Farm.

 there is 2000 stitches here, but the antique white makes it hard to tell, especially with the gridding, i hope that it washes out ok.

                                      And finally this is a piece of art by Brigid Ashwood, which i adore.

 i love the pin up style and have wanted to stitch something like this for years, i can only hope that this becomes available to buy on HAED

I had to admit that I really laughed when I saw the thus far picture on your Forever Friends piece, that really made me smile! Nice to know it's not just me that has starts like that!

I went to look for a complete picture of paradaisal bird and it looked stunning... I really hope you don't give up on it so early, the start is a bit discouraging but the end result is magnificent... please please finish it :)

Hi there! That Witchen Kitsch piece should be available from HAED soon. I gave them the artwork - it's just a matter of getting it up and available. Bug them about it! Lol. ;)
