Page 1 of Terra is finished and I have started on page 2.  So far this is stitching up rather quickly and I love working on it - must be all those lovely greens.

 I am on track with stitching on Terra every month.  This was one of my yearly HAED goals.

Two Eyes

Rochelle now has 2 eyes.  I should be finished page 2 this coming week and page 3 is not a very big page at all.  I love it when my girls have eyes.

I have also done a couple more hours on Terra, she has a little bit more hair.

Till next week God bless and I hope everyone has a stitchy week.

Rochelle's hair is longer and I am stitching her eye,  I love how she is turning out. I love it when the eyes are done,  I find they always look a little creepy until they are filled it.

Terra has some hair,  I am going to try and stitch a little on her every week.  This last week I managed over 3 hrs.  I don't quite know why, but I am enjoying stitching on Terra.

Till next week God Bless

A New Day and Rochelle

Page 9 FInished
I finised off Page 9 and that brought me to the end of stitching on A New Day for a while. 

I have picked up Rochelle QS and I am going to be stitching 6 pages before going back to A New Day.

The fabric on Rochelle is Opalescent and I do not like stitching on it.  I will be so glad to finish this one,  I have struck confetti central and it has slowed down the progress on it it.
Page 2 started

Here is what it looks like now.

Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy week.

Week's Progress

This last week I managed to get in about 11 hrs on A New Day and as you will see in the photo that just the tip of the butterfly wing has appeared.  It has so much confetti stitching in that area but it looks fantastic when you stand back.

I also did 3 hrs on Terra the Freebie HAED SAL, I really enjoyed stitching with the greens.

Hope everyone had a wonderful week.

Another Page Done

I have finished Page 8 and am pleased to be stitching on Page 9 as it has part of the wings of the butterfly on it.  That will help break up the background stitching.

I will be working on Terra to till Thursday.  Hopefully I can make a little progress on her.  I love the greens in Terra.

A New Day Has Come Update

I did about 5 hrs on this last week.  I have been having trouble with my eyes, I am wearing contact lens at the moment and they seem to be pulling my eyes and giving me constant headaches.  I am not sure what I will have to do.  I only wear them when I stitch 1x1 but by the end of the day I have a terrible headache which is frustrating me no end.

I love the colours in this piece and cannot wait to start stitching some of the butterfly.

Thank you all for your comments they are much appreciated.

A New Day Has Come

I managed to get a little done on this. I am having eye trouble and am not sure whether it is because I am again stitching light colours on light fabric. I can see alright if I wear my contact with my magnifying glasses. The contacts are day lenses and I will take them in and out when I stitch on A New Day. Well last week one tore as I put it in my eye and I couldn't get the other part out and had to go to the optometrist to get it out. So I am not quite sure what to do at this stage.

I am looking forward to getting this page stitched and starting on the next row with the butterfly in it.

2 New Starts

I have joined in the HAED Freebie SAL 2011 and I have chosen Terra to stitch. So here is the first month's SAL.  I didn't get a huge amount done but I have started.

I have no intention of finishing it this year.

The other new start that I had is a SAL which my friend and I are doing.  It is called Please My Wings Take Me Away we have both had the background removed. I spent most of the time gridding to make sure I was starting in the right place.

I couldn't find my bf 032 and I had a really old skein of it but guess what bf has a shelf life.  It was impossible to stitch with and kept breaking.   I had some bf 100 which is a little whiter and have decided to stitch with that. I did eventually find the 032 that I was looking for. I am stitching it on 28ct linen called Phoneix from Picture This Plus

Another Year another Page

I just love how this is looking after page 1.  It has been hard going, stitching on the Opalescent and I won't ever use it again for over 1.   I have been getting lots of headaches and was wondering whether it has been stitching without glasses.

I still have not started Terra for the SAL yet.  Hopefully this afternoon I will get her started and will stitch on her tomorrow too.  

My next stitching is 2 pages of A New Day Has Come. I can't wait to get back to this one - there are some exciting pages to stitch.

I also sent in Leaf and Crabby Crush QS for the HAED  Rewards program so now I have to sit back and wait for Tree of Life - Marchetti (I have been eyeing this off for some time) and CCKuik's Crimson Dream QS.  It was so hard picking out a QS as there are soooo many beautiful ones.
