New Year, New Goals, and finally, a post!

I'm alive!!! And kicking, lol! Sorry for such a long absence, life got really crazy. Hopefully some pretty WIP pictures will make it up to you all.

So what happened to me you ask? Well, money has been tight, so I was casually looking for a second job, and the perfect posting came up. Great hours, good people, and I could work from home. So I applied, thinking I had a slim chance. Lo and behold, I got a phone call offering me the job back in September, and of course I had to accept! Who wouldn't want a job working for the company who keeps her addiction satisfied, and get a sneak peek at all the pretties that are going to end up in my shopping cart? That's right, I work for Heaven and Earth Designs now! I don't think I have ever been (busier!) or happier with a job, so I hope you all will forgive me for disappearing, I had a really good reason, honest!

So onward to the good stuff, pictures! I haven't had as much free time as I would like to stitch, and my rotation has changed (again) as I was getting overwhelmed with new starts and having too much on the go. I have downsized my WIP's, again, and retired a few to the UFO pile, hopefully to be picked back up once I get some finishes in. So my side bar has been updated with everything I am currently working on, and I will be keeping my stitch totals updated.


Still working on the second row, but not much to go before pages 11 and 12 are done.  

Sadness of an Angel

Slowly but surely...still dislike this one but need to get it done.


Not much progress on her, my goal is to get at least a page done on her this year, hopefully more.

SK Water Dragon

I finished the first page on this one. Loving the fabric, but it is so hard to get a good picture!

The Ghost

She is so much fun to work on, but slightly creepy now that she is watching me.

One of my McBAP's (massively complicated big ass projects) that I started.


Pretty boring so far, lots of dark greens and browns.

Another McBAP, I will be lucky if I finish this by 80 years of age.

Large Treasure Hunt Bookshelf

This is by far my favorite WIP at the moment, lots of bright colours and details!

Waterfall Dragons

Still slow and steady on this one, hoping to get some more done, as it really does stitch up nice.

Dragon Witch Furionchires

My dream chart from Nene Thomas, hoping to make some major progress on her this year. 

And finally, my non-HAED for this year, a birth sampler for a friend's little guy. 

His 1st birthday is in April, so hoping to have it done by then.

Phew! So 11 projects on the go, slightly crazy, but manageable at this point. I will admit I have another new start waiting in the wings, but am behaving....for the moment!

Happy stitching!
