Vision of Light 27% done!!

I have finally reached the 25% mark on VoL. Actually 27.1% to be exact. She now has a nose and lips and even a few fingers!! This piece is so beautiful. The colors are wonderful. I can't wait to see her on my wall!!

This is my start on Mask of Colors. It is being stitched on 32 ct. bittersweet lugana over 1 tent stitch. I have a good start so far... I think the fabric will look nice with this one. Unfortunately, the pic doesn't do it justice.

So Far This February...

Well, this month's almost over and this is my first post. I have been dealing with the flu for the past week. I have several pics to show from earlier the month.
This first pic is my newest HAED start on Midnight Orchard by Ian Daniels. I am using Vikki Clayton silks. They are very beautiful. This is stitched 1x1 on 25 ct lugana.

Today I also was able to finally complete the top 5 rows on La Belle Dame Sans Merci. This is also done 1x1 on 25 ct.

This is my start on Love Me Not by Selena Fenech. It is done 1x1 on 28 ct evenweave.

One of my February goals was to finish the second row of blocks on Revelation. This piece is very beautiful with lots of confetti... when I get frustrated, I just have to look back at the progress pics of others to see it will be worth it!!

This is another BAP, but a break from HAED. It is called Rainbow Wind. The original artwork is by Joni Solis- converted to cross stitch by Jodi Watson of the Golden Hoop. This one is very colorful and one of my favorite subjects- horses!!
