Someone shoot me Please!!

Hello! I started my HAED the other day. This is 6 rows of page 1. There are 36 pages.
Will I ever finish it?
I highly doubt it. .



I did join the HAED BB and that made me pick it up for the second time, Thanks! I think it was Cindy that directed me.

Happy Stitching!!

Don't worry about it: we'll be here in the next 10 years to support you ;-) lol

A lovely design, good start.

I have a WIP one too, only a quick stitch, but unfortunately it hasn't ventured out of the workbasket yet this year *hangs head in shame* LOL

Oh my you silly girl! but it sure is beautiful. How funny - Beatrice and I were on the HAED website Friday picking one for us each to do. How nuts we all are!!!

Great start. I've only seen one person ever finish a HAED, who knows maybe you'll be the second ;)

Susan said...

It looks great-and don't worry, you aren't really considered crazy until you have 5 or 6 WIP's (as I slink away in shame...)

But I did finish one a year ago, so I know that it can be done, and you will finish yours too!

I was about to say yes until I scrolled down a bit further ;o) Just kidding! You can do it. I know you can! It's just not going to happen overnight. LOL!

Hi there :) I found your blog through someone's else blog! I love the HAED you have chosen so much! I just wanted to let you know that about 2 years ago I started my first HAED and it too is 36 pages. Here, 2 years out, I have only (only?) about 8 to go, so I promise you it can be done!

That is a great start, stitch by stitch you will get there!!!

I've recently rediscovered the one and only HAED in my WIP list. It is really slow going, but the reward of such a beautiful piece is worth the effort.

The design you've chosen is gorgeous. Good luck with it. Looking forward to future updates.

Sharon said...

Good luck with that! I have nothing but admiration for those that work on HAED's. I even own 2 or 3-haven't ever started them! You are a fast stitcher-you can do it!

Cindy said...

You are off to a great start! Keep plugging away on it, and you can finish it :)

Barbara said...

It's gorgeous. For me, it would be a lifetime challenge, though!

Suzanne said...

Wow, that's a great design. There is no fun in stitching unless we take on challenging projects. I look forward to watching your progress on this one, no matter how long it takes.

Sally said...

Lovely design Ranae. I am sure you will do just fine stitching it:)

Carla said...

The design is lovely...good luck with it :)

Beatrice said...

WOW good for you...you can do it for sure....it will take a while by the looks of things.
I've made up mine as to which one I will do!!!
Now I need to do a finish first.
You go girl!

Hazel said...

All the best with your HAED. I did a quick stitch and it took me about a year. I have one in my stash that is about 64 pages and I havent the guts to start it. Into my "smalls" at the moment. :) xx

Kathy said...

Good luck. That is quite an undertaking. Just do a little at a time so you don't get to burned out on it and not ever want to finish it. Just work in a small stitch now and then.

wow thats certainly going to be lovely but I know just what you mean.

I think the whole of my first page is just leaves ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
