Long Time, No See! :)

Good morning, Campers! How is everyone doing out there in Bloggerland? Me? I've been busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest. Hasn't left any time at all hardly for stitching, as I have been just too tired to stitch. The other night, however, I got the urge to stitch again and managed to be able to sit down for more than half an hour. I pulled out a WIP (bordering on UFO!) and a Heaven and Earth Designs   project at that. I wanted color and a lot of it, and you cant beat a HAED for that, haha! There's 90 colors in this one, and every last one is bright and sunny and it makes me smile just to look at the project box. :) 

The last time I posted anything about this project was when I first started it. on June 3, 2011, so it's been a minute for this one. I am really, really loving working on this one and I haven't been able to put it down. Here is the update, with the previous picture for comparison. First, the particulars: 

Fabric: 18 count aida in Antique White

Fibers: DMC as charted. Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braid in PB10


As of last night:

What she will look like eventually, after 15 pages of stitching: 

I am VERY pleased with my progress on this one so far. The blues are so soothing to stitch and I am finding that the Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braid in PB10 is perfect for the 18 count aida. And it's a lot less pain in the ass to deal with than the Kreinik! :D

Well, I best be off. Stuff to do before work and all. Hope everyone is having a great Sunday! :)


Respectfully submitted,
