HAED SAL Progress and a Mystery Start!!!

So I thought I would update with my progress on my HAED because I think it is going to take longer than I thought!!!.  I have done about 700 stitches and am almost across the top row of 10x10.  This design is so beautiful, the combination of colours is amazing.  The first couple of blocks had quite a bit of confetti but the next few that I have to stitch do not appear to be as bad so I am hoping to get more done this week.  Here is my progress as of 15/1/12:

I have also made a start on a stitched present.  I have a severely disabled cousin, who is turning thirty towards the end of June.  To avoid the rush and pressure I had with my Christmas stitching I am starting this one with plenty of time to spare as my sister is getting married in the same month and I want to stitch her a sampler (She knows she is getting one but will not know the particular design so I will not be able to post progress pics until after).  However, for my cousin I am going to make her one of the stitched boxes I made for my family at Christmas.  She is absolutely crazy about a particular subject and her room is covered in collectables and pictures.  I am not going to tell you what I am stitching, to quote Rolf Harris, 'Can you tell what it is yet ?!?!?!?":

I have also made good progress on the project that I like to stitch in the mornings in bed!!! I am going to save writing about that one until later in the week because I am very close to finishing!!!

Happy Stitching Everybody!!!


  1. I'm afraid I have no idea what it is. It looks sort of like shoes...

  2. I know what it is but have no idea if I'm allowed to say. So I won't. But I'm humming the music! :)
