IHSW

I had a really busy weekend, since I always work on Saturday & Sunday.
I didn't get much done, but for some reason I feel like I did. Go figure.

Here's Ice Wind's progress; the orange highlighted bits are what I did for IHSW.

I finished all the blue except for some confetti around the edges. All the blue on page one, that is. I did get a few stitches down onto page two. I also finished up the white in her hair and moved on to... pink. I love HAEDs. The colors are so weird, yet they look so good.

I tried out a stocking on red. It looks pretty good in real life. The white and green stand out very brightly, but the burgundy backstitch at the top looks brown.

I can live with that.

Remember a few posts back I said I thought I remembered an old kit with a carousel horse? Well, I did remember one. Found it, too!

And the sad wee bit I had done.

This is now my oldest WIP/UFO since I finished up the Daily Bread one.

Oh, I almost forgot! Here's what I bought at the HAED sale :D

Guardian Angel

I spent all the money I had saved for bidding on another Hawk Run Hollow pattern, but I don't mind. I've actually started some HAEDs; Hawk Run, not so much. Ah well, someday!

...y'know, I just realized all of these are guys with wings (and one girl... I don't think she has wings, though.)

Hope you all had a great weekend; I'm off to check out blogs!

  1. Great work on all the projects! I agree about the HAED colour, lol! I'm trying to gather now the threads for one Haed, and I look at some colours and can't help but wonder where the hell I'm supposed to use it in this picture XD Stocking and carousel are cute too. And winged guys are cool :P

  6. Great progress on your projects. I feel exactly the same way you do regarding HAED colours when kitting up, but after I stitch the "odd" colour and step back it's always "Wow! It really worked great" Michelle is a genius on that. And love your HAED buys, Cardinal is actually on my wish list to buy when I have some more finishes :)

  8. Ice Wind looks amazing =)
    And the charts you bought are just stunning! I have been looking at Cardinal Song for some time and Divide the Sky caught my eye the moment it was released at the website. Guardian Angel is great, too.
    I hope to see work on one of those soon.

  10. I agree with you, with the HEAD patterns you just have to trust that Michelle knows what she is charting, even if you think that your doing the wrong color it's going to be oke.

    When will you start one of the new one's?

    Hugs Yvon.
