A rather old WIP

Here's the promised photo of my HAED stitching. This is Shakaasha, which last saw the light of day back in October 2006! I had done a tiny bit immediately after taking that photo, so if you want to see what she looked like before I started work last week, click here.


I'm really pleased with my progress - a whole page and a bit. The fact that I've had absolutely no work at all for the first time in 18 months has helped, though it is a bit worrying. It would be nice to have a better balance - it always seems to be all or nothing work-wise.

  1. That's a lot of blue! ;) Hope work picks up for you soon - how is M's work situation now, if it's not too nosey to ask?

  2. I love those colours, but looks like you'll be coming into a bit of pinks soon if you want some variety. I was wondering which HAED you had picked up, and when looking along your sidebar, saw this one and hoped :)
    Glad you're getting some good stitching time in, even if you haven't been getting much work. I know what you mean about balance - sometimes it's very hard to get.

  6. Great progress! I too recently pulled out my HAED Storey Keep which has as much blue as yours I think. It felt good to get back to it and I'm planning to work on it again this weekend for a bit. Keep up the good work.

  11. Looks beautiful so far! I'm always amazed by people who can stitch with all those different threads going at once. I'd love to learn how to do that.
