QS-Rose-Anderson a HAED

Well this is my first attempt at an HAED.  Actually my second...the first one got abandoned after I completed only 1/2 of a page.  My goal is to actually finish this one.  This is a Quick Stitch so it has a lot less pages than an actual HAED design.  Yet, there are still MANY color changes and I feel like it takes me forever to get any stitching done.  I have been working on this piece for over a month and I still don't have one page done yet.  I am stitching this on 25 ct. White Dublin 2 over 1. 

This is also my first attempt at parking threads...not sure if I like this method or not just yet.  =)

Autumn Grandeur SAL - Kustom Krafts

This is my first SAL (Stitch-Along) ever and I'm super excited!  The pattern is by Kustom Krafts and titled Autumn Grandeur.  This is a pic of the first completed page.  I know it doesn't look like much now...but it will be fun to watch the pattern grown into a beautiful masterpiece!  I have stitched this piece on 14 ct. Khaki Aida 2 over 1.
