My Stash

First and foremost I want to thank you all for the wonderful and kind comments you've all left. Please know that they are absolutely heartwarming, inspiring, and very much appreciated. Thank you!

I've been working on College of Magical Knowledge this weekend, which has been progressing faster than I thought it would! It's really rather encouraging, considering I haven't had a lot of time to work on it. My weekends are getting busier and busier. I still live in the town where I went to college. I graduated a few years ago and work in the next town over. However, towards the end of August I've decided to make a big change and move. As such, I've been making more and more efforts to see the friends I have here before I go and spend as much time with them as possible. This means less time for stitching, which is ok. With that said, a before and after of about a day and a half of progress.

Before:


After:


I think that's not too bad all things considered.

Now, I'm going to share a little bit of my stash with you guys. Just a few works that I got for Christmas a few years ago that started me on HAED. I'll show more of my stash with time, but there's so much of it that having it all in one post would be overwhelming, and would make me look like a crazy person.

Nightfall by Jessica Galbreth

Serenity by Jessica Galbreth

Those along with Dark Queen and Mystic Mermaid (as seen on the left) were given to me for Christmas. They began the downward spiral towards madness. 

Until next week, happy stitching!

That's wonderful that you can spend time with old friends. And your progress is awesome! So you're going down ,now? You want to finish the tree first?
Thanks for sharing some of your stash. They look all lovely. I especially love Serenity. I have too much stash to show it :), so you see, you're not that crazy (or at least not the only one)

It's looking gorgeous, and love the other charts in your stash!
It's lovely that you're getting to spend time with your friends, but it does take away from the stitching time, I've had that problem.

You managed a lot of progress, your stitching looks wonderful :)
I think it's okay to put stitching behind for thins that are important to you, you should use the time you have to meet with your friends, you will miss them soon enough :) You stitching will at least move with you!

Oh an Anojaa, I'm so sorry I neglected to answer your question. I'm working diagonally down from top left to bottom right. So the next page after this will be in the top right, then middle, then bottom and so on. It lets me get to the picture faster and keep the line of demarcation down to a minimum :)
