First Ever HAED Page Finish and Stash

I can't believe that I finally have my first page completed on my first HAED.  It's been a long time coming as I started it in September of last year but I did put it away for a few months and didn't touch it.

Luckily for me my stitching is not goal orientated otherwise I would always be failing miserably.  I thought I would of finished this last week but it took me until today to do it.

I was to have been working on Christmas Decorations this week but I think I will sit down tomorrow morning and decide what I am going to make for my swop partner and spend the rest of the weekend working on it.  The swop package has to go out my the latest 1 July, but seeing as my partner is all the way in France, I think I want to send it out a bit earlier.

Even though my rotation was a bust this week, I think I will stick to it, and work on my HAED next week and the Christmas Decorations the week after that.  Should be interesting to see how the next page develops seeing as I am pretty much done with this side curtain.

I got my stash purchase in the mail and now I can share it with you.

First are the two QSnap frames:

I read somewhere about a lady who bought two different sizes and then used them to make other size QSnaps and that is what I did too.  So now I am sitting with 2 frames that are both 8" x 11".

I have enough threads and beads to do at least 3 Joann Elliott designs and I plan on buying alot more.

Congratulations on reaching the one page mark - that's a huge achievement. And that's probably why I shy away from the beautiful HAEDs. I know I'd Lind the slow progress hard. Odd given I love stitching TWs, and they're not exactly quick stitches!
Great idea on the q snaps :)

Congrats on finishing the first page. It looks so pretty.
I so know that feeling of accomplishment. I have to tell you that I too finally got smart and used 2 8" and 2 11" together for the QSnap frame. I tried to stitch on 11x11 way too large for me to hold.
Now its a pleasure stitching on a 8x11 frame!!! love Annette
