Here is the second HAED I started, Glimmer by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law. This piece is a modest 15 pages (combined it is more like 10 pages) and 78,400 stitches. Stitched with one strand DMC over one on 25ct Lugana (a pale yellowish pink color).  So many HAEDs so little time!

Note: I started at the upper right hand corner.

Progress on Pretty

Stitched on 25ct antique white Lugana one strand DMC over one. I have completed 12,000 stitches of 264,375.  A drop in the bucket, but I just keep telling myself stitch by stitch.

Pretty by Nene Thomas

The Heaven and Earth Design that started it all. 

I am always startled by how much of this piece translates to my own story.  After 2 years of cross stitching, I ran across a HAED on google images and have been hooked ever since! Initially I was intimidated by the 46 page pattern, but as the picture begins to emerge I have no doubt I will finish this long before my 15 year deadline!
