Fairy Day SAL

I started Magpie Fairy by Josephine Wall for the HAED BB Fairy Day SAL. My DH actually picked this one out. I had seen it on the site before, but didn't really pay much attention to it. Turns out, if you really look at the original, there's all kinds of trinkets that this little thief has taken- hence the name. I absolutely fell in love!!
Now, don't get me wrong, this is NOT an easy piece to stitch. It is by far the hardest HAED that I have going... I thought Revelation was hard. Nope, not compared to Magpie!! And I'm just on the fringes... I'm sure as I keep going it will become even more chaotic.
Here's my pic so far:

I may keep stitching on this one for a while. It's technically time to move on to something else in my rotation, but since I don't have a time limit set (must be at least 10 hours per slot, but can stitch more), I may keep going. This is 30 hours so far on Magpie. I didn't have to work this weekend so I had all kinds of time to stitch.

Soul of a Unicorn

I thought I would post a pic of a recent start by Josephine Wall- Soul of a Unicorn. This piece is fantastic. I'm sure it will become very difficult with tons of confetti, but right now it's smooth sailing. I'm stitching this 1x1 on 28 ct. rose monaco.

Busy Stitching

Hi everyone. I am busy stitching for the Fairy Day SAL. I am stitching Magpie Fairy (my New Start). Thought I would check in and share my new rotation plans....
I am using the Random Researcher to mix these 10 catagories up- there's a link in the sidebar if anyone would like to use it. It goes like this:

1- BK Lusk
3- Sheila Wolk
4- Josephine Wall
5- Celtic
6- Ian Daniels
7- Free slot (absolutely anything goes)
8- Miscellaneous HAED
9- New Start
10- Quick Stitch

I am stitching anything I want to by each particular artist, but definitely concentrating on Vision of Light by BK Lusk. I have links to all the charts I picked for this first rotation in the sidebar. I think I should make it at least one or two months on this rotation. Who knows. I may change it all around again tomorrow! lol

Working on My Blog...

I've been spending a lot of time recently trying to get my blog in order. I promise I'll have some WIP pics up soon. If you look at the side bar, you'll see a lot of changes. I added a slide show of various finished pieces (no HAEDs finished yet, lol). I'm also putting up WIP pics of each of my HAEDs- there's more than I have listed right now.
I'm still not sure if I like this layout. I think I would like to have a left and right side bar, but so far haven't figured that one out....
Hope everyone has a great day!!
