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 pages....my 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 Oztion.com.au 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...

Here is a progress photo of the Teddy Bears! I haven't got far to go and then there is a heap of backstitching to be done...
