Big Project.... Small Start!

I totally didn't get chance to blog this Monday. We had a plumber here all day giving the central heating a power flush so my day was distrupted to say the least.

On Monday evening I started a patchwork/quilting course at the store Thread Bear in Surrey. It's a sampler quilt that I'll be creating over 10 weeks & you can see the sort of thing I'll be making here. I'll get a picture on soon.

Now on to the BAP. In case you didn't know, many moons ago I started my muched loved Heaven And Earth Design. Of course it fell by the wayside & found itself on the pile (more like an entire room now) labelled UFO. When getting back into my stitching I was desperate to get going again on the HAED only to find that I just couldn't. Further investigation led me to realise it was the fabric that I didn't like. I just wasn't happy working on the 25ct over 1. DH bought me some lovely new fabric in a more respectable 18ct & now I've finally started again. OK so it's not a massive start but I am enjoying it & I'm enjoying seeing it grow... all be it slowly :-)

I'm off to Sandown Park tomorrow with my good friend over at A Yen For Yarn. We're browsing the Stitch & Creative Crafts Show..... fingers crossed I come back with goodies :-)

Happy Stitching


  1. Great re-start to your HAED. You have to enjoy the fabric you are stitching on with HAED's otherwise it becomes such a chore.

  2. Looks like you got a good start on your HAED. I can't understand how people stitch those BAPs! LOL!
