Back Online!!

I am finally up and running internet-wise. Turns out a group of rogue squirrels had taken out 4 inches of our cable. Took some time, but the issue has been resolved... now if I can only get that pesky woodpecker to stop destroying the side of the house...
Anyway, back to stitching. This past weekend was the background SAL at HAED. I had Guardian Angel coming up in my rotation, so it worked out nicely. Here are some lovely shades of red/purple/brown that I ended up with after the weekend.

HAED Background SAL

I am temporarily off line at home ATM. Something is going on with my ISP- hopefully that will be repaired on Wednesday.
I am presently stitching Guardian Angel by Jacqueline Collen-Tarrolly for the background SAL. It just happened to come up in my rotation this weekend. Lots of reds! I have placed a pic in the sidebar if you would like to see it.
Happy stitching to everyone!!

The Napping Hat

Here is an update on the Napping Hat QS by Molly Harrison. I quite like this little piece a lot. I have finally completed an entire page of stitches. She actually stitches up quickly, but I faithfully rotate. I hope to get to the kitty's tail next time she comes up.

HAED Challange SAL

Here she is after the Weekend SAL. I am officially over the 50% mark!! I am now trying to decide which HAED I will concentrate on after she is finished. I know I have at least a year to

Awen and Maggie

Couple of update pix- here is Awen Inspiration- very colorful and detailed.

This is Wall's Magpie Fairy. Even more detail than Awen. Lots of confetti stitching, but still fun to stitch.

I'm currently revamping my rotation. There are so many wonderful HAED artists, that I am changing my rotation to "subjects" rather than "artists." So, instead of BK Lusk or Wall, I'll have "Fairy" or "Mermaid." I'm going to complete the rest of this round, then change officially. I'll have to start stitching more on Mates as well. It is a Christmas gift, and I've only made it through 10% so far, so I'll start rotating it every 10 hours. Well, I'm off to stitch on Vision of Light for the HAED Challenge SAL. I'll post a pic of her later. This is my first weekend off work in a long time for the SAL, so I hope to get lots of stitching done.

Mermaid of the Deep

Here is my newest Mermie by JBG after the new start SAL:Tons of black in this one. I will probably be stitching on her or Meta during the HAED background SAL coming up in September. I ended up getting over 4000 stitches done- easy when 85% is black or 939.
