HAED and Exchange

Last Thursday I met up with Denise who now lives in Saudi Arabia but originally comes from Hastings in the UK.  We had lunch at Waterfalls in Hastings Town centre. We talked so much! It was so lovely to see Denise again. I also gave her an exchange we were in last year on my ILCS Yahoo group. It was for a Summer ornament, but I stitched her two seeing she waited so long for it. We had previously arranged that I would give them to her when we met next. It makes it more personal :-)



I have neglected my HAED's lately, so over the last week I worked on Dragon Moon.


The picture does not do it justice as it does not show how sparkly it is due to the Petite Treasure Braid.

This is how it will look when it is finished.

The chickens are coming along nicely. All three of them (Doris, Dolly and Dotty)  are all laying eggs now. They taste so much better then shop eggs.

  11. Very nice that you and Denise got to get together again. I know I enjoy it when I get to hang out with another stitcher! Your gifts look great and your HAED looks fantastic. I didn't know they used PTB in their patterns.
