Ever seen a chart you just have to stitch!?!
Well, not long ago there was a release from Heaven And Earth Designs - I just had to stitch it! If you aren't familiar with HAED designs - they are huge and over 1 on 25ct. Well I just put the chart on my mental wish list, and I had just gone on with life. A couple months ago when I was requesting donations for the ILCS Retreat - Vickie thought it would be neat to contact HAED and ask for a donation - well they accepted, and asked Vickie what chart she would like. Well she asked for my favorite HAED! I was aware of her asking. She gave it to me as a thank you for helping with the planning of the retreat. THANK YOU Vickie!!
Well, the chart I'm referring to, is called - "Cabin in The Woods" I just fell in love it from the first time I saw it. So, about 2 weeks ago, it arrived with all my retreat goodies, and I got out the chart, and I was amazed at all the charted pages. The DMC is huge! The only item I was missing was the fabric. Well dear Vickie offered to send me some 25ct fabric. And in the mean time I just kinda worked on other projects, but I was getting the urge to start. Well last Friday, I thought - what the heck, I should check my stash. And lo and behold, I found a piece of 25ct ivory fabric, big enough!
So, I got out the Fray Check, and got the edges prepped, and I was off stitching. So this is my stitching progress for a week! I'm amazed as to how much I have gotten done. I'm stitching it in a staircase manner that Vickie suggested would make it go faster. I have appx 3150 stitches in it so far out of the 169,050. Last night, I could have cried... I was off a row, horizontally. So I had to do some ripping, and I wasn't too happy.. spent more time unstitching, than I did stitching. When I'm done - it will be 14" X 19 1/4" ... and its stitched over 1 on 25ct.
So far this major BAP is bringing me enjoyment!
