My obsession with HAED and crochet and yarn and stuff . . . . .

Naughty, naughty!

I've done it again *blush* I've made ANOTHER new start.

I had started Early Visit (aka Talia) last week and got a couple of thousand stitches in but then HAED released a JBG as a fundraiser for Japan that was sooooo cute! Straight into the basket and off of the printer :-D

I had the fabby already and when I checked my threads, I had all of them except two! Definitely fate that I start her ;-) So, last night, I got enough gridding in to make a start and put 300 stitches in. Here is how she will look when she is done:

Totally fab yes?!?!

And it's a ....

... finish!

After furiously stitching to get her finished all night last night and then having to give up at 1am with just 50 or so stitches to go, Porthole of Fantasy is finally done! I started her on 2 December 2010 and 100's of hours and 1000's of stitches later, here she is:

She's a little crumpled, but then she is hot off the Q-Snap so it's not surprising. Now I just need to put her up on the HAED board and I think I might email JBG a picture, just so she can see what her work stitches up like.

Well I think she's turned out great. It just shows what a great job Michele at HAED dones. I think I'll miss her a bit :-( BUT onwards and upwards, I now need to prep my fabby for the SAL and also my new start, Early Visit :-D

Themed SAL week

Well, I joined in with the themed SAL this week on the HAED bulletin board. The theme was creatures, which fitted Porthole brilliantly. So, here is my before:

And here is my after:

I didn't think that I had got much done, but it amounts to about three columns - so not bad at all!

Not much more to go now and I will have finished the page. And then it's just two and a half columns to the finish!
