My stitched bits

I am running a fever :-(
I should be in bed really but I just wanted to try out something that Sally explained to me in an email. Thank you Sally, it worked :-) Look at the blinkie above!
As for my HAED Queen, I am still at it, well not right now of course. (Would be fun to type and stitch at the same time!) I had stitched some 50 stitches on Wednesday and on Thursday I pulled them out Wasn't fun to do, but I tested doing cross stitches with just one thread and it looks much better. The 50 stitches I had done with 2 threads looked a bit bulgy, so that's why I was happily frogging away last night. It took me a whole while to get the stitches out but I finally got there and started all over. I have done much more now but I have no idea what it looks like. This is rather funny to make really, the HAED designs I mean. You just stitch and don't have a clue what it will look like as it's going so slow. I am sure one day it will be clear what it is but it's way too soon for that now. I am still stitching a piece of the night sky with the dark navy blue colour and I still don't regret starting this design. When I think I have to stitch 35 pages of chart I feel like I must have been bonkers to start this. So I just don't think about it and just stitch trying not to wonder if, when and where this will ever end.
I stitched a whole lot more today as I got to work this morning but didn't feel too good. So when it was somewhere past 11 o'clock, I left and went home. As I'm having a cold, I will not go out this weekend and that means I'll have plenty of time to stitch some more! I just hope my nose won't run too much or that I won't sneeze on the
That's it for now! Just going to surf the web a bit more and listen to a bit of music, I have "A Flock of Seagulls" on my CD player with "Telecommunication" blasting away now. Yep, I know, I'm old, but I don't care!

Hope you feel better soon! Just look at it from a positive way though - you should get heaps of stitching done.

Hope you'll soon be feeling better Danielle.

The thing with HAEDs is once you've done a good bit step back and look at it from a distance. Then you will see something! It may not be much but you can see a difference from a distance.

Pleased I could help with the blinkie! I was worried I hadn't explained it very well as I don't find it easy to write down and it's always so much easier to show somebody!
