Quaker Patchwork

I've been stitching on one of my older wip's for the past few days, this is quaker patchwork by Stickideen von der Wiehenburg. I think it was a free sal from her yahoo group some years back but not entirely certain when. I'm stitching it on 18 count aida with vikki clayton silks. I love the vibrant color of her silk thread, soo pretty and wonderful to stitch with. I am in a finish projects sort of mood so am going with the flow while I have some stitchy mojo lol. I would get more stitching done if I stayed off the internet lol!

my pick for the 2013 HEAD SAL

Here is my pick for the 2013 HAED bulletin board SAL, QS Literate Dragon. It was difficult to pick my favorite from all the patterns listed for the SAL but finally the handsome dragon won! I'm excited and can't wait to begin. In the meantime right now I am working on Dark Cherry from year before last's SAL, I will post a new pic when I have finished the page I am working on.
I am trying desperately not to buy anymore patterns but HAED keeps having wonderful sales and my resolve is wearing thin lol, must stay strong....ha!

updating my blog

I've been a very bad blogger of late, life has been hectic and some things just had to be pushed aside while I got my life back in order, this blog was one of those things. Life is better now and I am getting back to some of the things I used to enjoy, like stitching and blogging. So hopefully I can keep up better with with my little blog, am trying to rework it and make it more interesting. We shall see how it goes~

some of my haed wip's

oh this is a terrible picture but this is my feeble progress on the 2012 SAL for the haed bulletin board. This is qs Siberian forest, page 1 (of 4) as you can see I did not do well with this at all. I think one of my goals for next year will be to finish him up as I have seen other stitchers lovely finishes and he is gorgeous!!

and to my embarrassment this is my progress on the 2011 SAL, this is Dark Cherry. She at least is halfway finished, and will be one of my goals for next year as well, she deserves some attention!

I also signed up for the 2013 SAL, think I am addicted to haed's? and sal's? lol

a funny


This is Burden by haed (heaven and earth designs), artwork by Krystal Camprubi. I'm stitching it 1x1 on 28 count evenweave. I've been working on this since october of 2006! Hopefully with a little prod from sal's etc I will make some real progress on him during next year. He has been with me for a long time and has become a companion of sorts lol
