New Start - Sistine Chapel

I have just begun a major project which will take YEARS to finish, but I am excited to finally get started on it.  I have only worked 10 hours on it, but it has been enjoyable so far.  I am stitching it on 25 ct mushroom lugana, and I am tenting 1x1.  Not much to look at yet, but it's a start!

Lady of the Flag Update

Here is my progress on Lady of the Flag by Lavendar & Lace.  I have worked 40 hours on it so far, and I love it.  I especially love all the beading on it, which is something I never thought I would enjoy, but it just makes it pop!  This is one I wouldn't mind working on exclusively just to get it finished, and once I have my rotation in place like I want it, I may do that.

HAED Mini The Toy Box

Here is the beginning of my work on Mini The Toy Box.  It is 10.5 hours of stitching time, and it is being done on 25 ct blue lugana.  I am also tenting for the first time, so it is 2x1, and so far I am really enjoying it.  It definitely moves along faster by doing the tent method, so I think I am going to start a few other HAEDs in this way too.

Peaceful Garden Update

I finished working on my 10 hour rotation of Peaceful Garden a couple of days ago but haven't had the chance to upload a pic until now.  I went a bit over my normal 10 hours and worked 14.75 hours, so my total hours to date are 69.75 hours.  I finally got all the borders done, so I feel like I have really accomplished something now.  Now all I have to do is fill in the dozens of little holes!
