Mystery XI and HAED's

Due to the blog of Our Friends' HAED SAL I have been stitching like crazy this week on Vibrant Vista and, a little bit, Call of the Raven. This blog is really stimulating me to finish both works end of the year LOL. And whenever I see someone's beautiful new start my fingers are itching to start another one. I printed two of them last week, shown below, and I think I wil start both of them end this week.
Starting now with showing some progress on Chatelaine's Mystery XI. I still have faith in myself, being able to finish it end of april, still a month to go, but in that case I'll have to stitch on this one all month, so I might set it on June 1st...

I looks like it is almost finished, but not only the stitching , but also all the beading has to be done. And that's quite some job! On Vibrant Vista I finished page 1, page 6 was already done, so now I move on to page 5, stitching from right to left, as I prefer.

On Call of the Raven I also stitch from right to left, working over pages, just following the colors. For me it's the best way to count. It seems I don't have to pay attention to stitching too much, and can watch television during stitching.


I plan to start on the following two, as I said I printed them out, and I have most DMC in my stash. Both designs are not too big. Sleeping Elf is a QS, and I Know I Can Do This (it's the title that drew my attention, even more than the chart LOL) is half as long as Vibrant vista. So I figured out I can do all works on the same piece of fabric, so I have them at hand all three at the same time.

Your Chatelaine is stunning. I would love to do another one but the cost is too much for me. Your HAED's are coming along nicely and I know the feeling of wanting to start another one after seeing all the inspiring WIP's

Wat een schitterende patronen! En de mystery vind ik helemaal het einde, ik durf eigenlijk nooit goed mee te doen met mysteries, stel dat ik het onderwerp helemaal niet mooi vind, zit ik met een borduur werk waar ik niks mee doe en uren die ik had kunnen besteden aan borduuwerk dat ik wel mooi vind. Maar deze is we heeeeeeeel erg mooi.

Wow, you're doing great on the Chatelaine, it's really gorgeous!

I am looking forward to see a wip on your Sleeping Elf. That one is so beautiful! I am really tempted to get that but it looks like it has a lot of colours and that means a lot of confetti stitches.

The Chatelaine is going to be breathtaking when the beads are done. It already is amazing.
And all those HAEDS! Great pieces.

Brigitte said...

Your Chatelaine looks terrific but I know that there's still a lot of beading and this takes some time. But nevertheless you're not too far from happy dancing.
Your HAEDs are all so great, you seem to be highly motivated to stitch on them. Good luck with your new starts.

OMGosh, Joke, you have left me in the dust with the Chatelaine piece!! I've not even started mine! Yours is simply gorgeous and inspiring. I'm so happy for you. Great work. Love your HAEDs. I know you love stitching on these... :)
Hugs, Deb
