And so it endeth ...

the HAED Stitch-A-Thon that is :)

Here's my progress for the week.



I managed 5,557 full crosses which for the purpose of the contest equals 11,114 stitches. I'm not a fast stitcher so I was pretty pleased with my effort this week. I am easily distracted too although with the kids banned from the downstairs lounge room this week (one of them left a lollipop stick on the couch and their father found it - ooops - lol!) I was able to reclaim my stitching area back and stitch in relative peace! Wonder if I can make it a permanent thing - lol!

I think I will continue working on this one for a little longer as I'm really enjoying her but don't be surprised if I change my mind - lol!

Not a fast stitcher,huh? You got a TON done and it looks great--I love that QS. And you have kids--that's what slowed me down this week. I can't wait to see more :)

That is beautiful! And your stitches are so neat for over-1. Ah, makes me want to start another HAED... I'm getting very tempted!

Thanks for the info on HAED. I am still thinking about it. Perhaps I will do a quick stitch. Love all the designs. Wishing Wishing.

Love your HAED stitching. Is a QS a lot smaller than the normal designs, if so, how small are they. Just wondering.

What awesome HAED stitching. How big is your fabric for this kind of work and how big is the final stitch.
