Moonlight Immersion HAED update

Here she is!!!


She is a beautiful thing, I do love her. Someone said they were thinking of buying a HAED under my last post...I thought I would let you know that these designs can seem very overwhelming. I do only Quick Stitches myself. I am excited that they are now offering mini's of some of the larger designs, and that you can request the design of your choice be turned into a mini for a fee. These designs, no matter how big or small or very slow going. I am stitching this one on 25ct over one. Usually I use 22ct, over one. Some use 18 or 16 count as well. It all looks great, but gets bigger and bigger. So if you do try one, hang in there!! As you can see, they are well worth it.

Speaking of that, I saw on the Carriage House Sampling's Blog where someone had stitched one of those big designs over one on silk gauze. I thought, DUH! Why didn't I think of that? All this time, my holdup on stitching one of those was the big huge piece of fabric I would need. If I did it on 25st, problem solved. :))) It looks very good too, actually I think it looks better. So I am mulling that over now..maybe I need to get one and go for it. :))

Have a happy weekend! I will be continuing to work ob my sweet girl above, I am in a groove with her. Her kimono is gorgeous, I can't wait to get into the rest of it.

She's beautiful! I too stitch mostly quickstitches and on 22 count, although I have an SK and a BAP on the go too!). They are so worth it and incidently one of my current peices is a Kuik too (I'm doing QS Waiting). I love Moonlight Immersion and intend on stitching her myself at some point in the future, you're stitchingon her is fantastic! xx

Thank you!! I love to follow your stitching progress too, its such fun to see HAED's take shape. :) I saw you waiting and I love her! I ordered Simply Rose (with the white hair) and am all excited to start her tomorrow, thats when the chart should be in. I guess if it doesn't make it I will keep on with Moonlight. :))
