Pearl Swirl Mermaid | HAED

Hello Peeps!

I am so sorry it has been so long since my last post...
But, I am still enjoying my HAED adventure!

In my last post, I was happily stitching away on Voodoo
and had already planned my new start and rotation.

Well, going back to the last weekend of September,
I went away to our annual cross stitch retreat
(or weekend away, whatever you like to call it)
with my stitching buddy Justine, at our usual cottage The Dairy.

We had a lovely relaxing time doing nothing but stitch
(in between eating & drinking, that is!)
and I was eager to start on my new planned project

Pearl Swirl Mermaid
By Jasmine Becket-Griffith

This is what it will eventually look like when finished, one day

350 x 470 stitches
90 colours
Stitched on 25 count magic evenweave
1 over 1 using the DMC recommended threads
Swapped Kreinic for DMC light effect

I soon realised my 2 weeks rotation was not going to work for me.
So, I'd decided to keep going on one project until I had a page finish.

And this is…

Voodoo in violet | HAED #1

Hello Peeps! As you know, I have been spending this past week stitching away on Voodoo
- To be honest, it was more of making a start and tackling the first of many pages! -
and I have been having a great time slowly (very slowly) seeing it starting to appear on my fabric.

Started on the 14/09/2017 Using DMC magic guide fabric 25 count, white evenweave Stitching 1 over 1, full crosses with DMC
Design size is 400 stitches wide by 557 stitches high
88 colours
Finished design should be measuring
16 inches wide by 22-1/4 inches high
Started on the first page at the top left corner

Trying to zoom a little...

I know it doesn't look like anything at the moment,
but I can honestly say that I am hooked on HAED!!

I am proud of how much I've achieved in a week. There is plenty more to do, I am fully aware of it,
but I am simply having great fun and enjoying stitching one cross at a time!
I will be back soon with what is most likely to be another HAED start ;)

Toodles, Mii
