The Awakening Update 29

Well Page 8 is finally complete, and I couldn’t resist starting the next page before stopping to take a photo.  There is only one and a bit pages left to go until the end of the row now which  is very exciting.

    Oh wow, I’ve not seen anyone stitching this one up before, it’s completely stunning, can’t wait to see it grow throughout the year!

    Hi, I stumbled onto your blog when I was looking for a better picture of the woodland enchantress since I was thinking about getting it for my next project (great job on it, btw!). But after seeing your progress on The Awakening from HAED, I went straight over there to see what other designs they had.

    Yours is coming along amazingly and it’s quite impressive. I’m very tempted to start on a design of my own but with the tiny stitches and sheer number of them, I think I will hold off until I get a good frame to make it easier.

    Anyhow, just wanted to drop you a line (or a dozen) and let you know you’ve inspired me to push to finish my dolphin project (it’s almost been 2years!) and start a little blog of my own 🙂

    Keep up the good work!

    Hi Becca,

    I found your blog a couple weeks ago and love looking at all of your artwork!! You do such a beautiful job and I love reading your thoughts on the designs and your updates.

    This HAED design looks so amazing!!! What a challenge to undertake. You give me motivation to keep working on my projects.

    Here is what I’m currently working on:

    Can’t wait to see more of your progress, and congrats on the engagement!!

    I’m so happy I stumbled upon this site! What a neat idea to blog your progress through a massive cross stitch project like that. I don’t think I would ever succeed in completely one that big but the payoff at the end is going to be the best! I looked at the HAED site and to be honest, cross stitch designs like that worry me. I once bought a design that was computer generated and it was complete crap. But, then again, I see the way that yours is turning out and it looks stunning!

    Anyway, keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing future updates. Do you have a goal for when to have it completed or are you just going at your own pace?

    Hi Lisa, thank you for your comments. Getting a design from HAED didn’t worry me because I had seen pictures of other people’s completed HAEDs so I knew it would look amazing. I don’t have a goal at all, I just work on it when I have the time. I know it will take years, but it will be worth it.

    Oh my Goodness, this looks great! I heard HAED designs are large, how long have you been working on this?

    Thank you, I started it in September 2008 but I don’t work on it very much so it’s taking a long time.

    This is looking amazing 🙂 have you done much more on this?
    I started a HAED in January this year and like yours it’s going to take me a few years to complete.
