Cabin Fever Update

I have been working on Cabin Fever as well as the HAED for the last couple of weeks, I have made a lot of progress since the last photo. It is looking pretty darn good if I do say so myself!

The Waiting

I have been working steadily on 'The Waiting' since my last update. I have completed a lot of black area and worked on the confetti as well of which there is an awful lot especially around the whiskers of the tiger...The tiger is going to look magnificent when he is finished and you can really start to see him taking shape in this photo...

The Waiting - confetti

I have been working steadily, I have done a lot of the black to the left, you can see it is higher up than before, also I have done a fair bit of confetti here and there which means my progress is not as noticeable this week, but if you compare to the previous picture you can see the difference.

The Waiting after a week's work

Most of this progress was done today, I took the fabric off the frame and am stitching without it... I am stitching much faster!

You can really see the tiger forming!

The Waiting Update

I have actually done quite a bit more since this photo was taken a few days ago but you will have to wait until my next update!

I have gotten into a routine the last few days, in the daytime I work on The Waiting and at night I work on Cabin is suiting me...

I ordered a lap frame on ebay from someone who makes them in England. So that should make it easier to do The Waiting as my hand gets sore holding the frame all the time as it is quite heavy...

Cabin Fever Update

I have been meaning to post for a while but things have happened the last couple of weeks, my Dad was admitted to hospital for pneumonia and I was visiting every day. He's home now and he is much better...

I have been working steadily on Cabin Fever and have done quite a bit. I have also worked a bit on The Waiting. I have ordered a frame so I can work with it a bit better as I will be posting to Our Friend's HAED SAL again soon...

The Waiting Restart

Ok here is my progress with restarting The Waiting. I am starting from the bottom of the picture instead of the top so I am not redoing what I already have done...

That white area is the bottom part of the tiger, there was a fair bit of confetti in that area...

It's stitching up well...and no cramps in my hand this time....

I have done quite a bit more on Cabin Fever.

I have restarted The Waiting, I received the material about 3 days ago, prepared it, put it onto a frame and done over 800 stitches...

The unspeakable

I am about to buy some 18 count off white Aida and restart 'The Waiting'. I'll start from the bottom this time so I don't feel like I am doing the same thing over and over...

Oh the pain of starting again after I have completed nearly 12 hand just can't take anymore...

Teddy Bear Gathering Finished!

I have finished the Teddy Bears. I started to do the backstitch but I didn't like how it looked and I prefer the picture without it so it is officially finished! It is such a lovely picture, I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I bought the picture just before Christmas 2008 from a seller on for $36. The Fox Collection were selling the same kit for $79 so I knew it was a good deal! And now I have completed it...

Now I am trying to do the HAED again and I have done some more on Cabin Fever as well so I will do those two on rotation... I am thinking about buying a HAED kit from Colray Crafts but in 18 count not 25 count so its easier... I'll probably buy it for Christmas 2009...

Welcome to new readers!

I just had a look at my feed subscribers and this blog now has 13! So welcome. All I really do is post pictures of my progress. At the moment I am working on the teddy bear gathering project. I bought it from Oztion for $36. The Fox Collection was selling it for $69 so I grabbed it from Oztion as a Christmas present to myself last year. I really love the picture and it is a joy to work on...

I'll try and update with another photo tomorrow.
