I've met the goal for the HAED challenge, and thought it would be great to start a new one. Only so much over 1 has me not interested in more of the same. At least for tonight because of the poor lighting in here. Still, mornings are great to get a little done, and there's several I really want to launch, maybe in a few weeks.
For now, it's a good guess what will get some attention. The Mirabilias, the Chatelaines, and there's always the Celtic ladies vying for a chance.
My brain is tired because of long days on the farm, and training Tango the Mustang has been the most relaxing thing all week. (Lol the HAED was confetti, so not very relaxing at that; ) ) So with the challenge taken care of, I will take a break from the genre till it slows up a bit round here.
But to choose is the best part. ..

I've been in a stash collecting mode, the last few years havent allowed much of that so I need to catch up, and the discovery of no more Nene HAEDs was a bummer! I dont want to find myself in that pickle again, but at least with the Nene's she's doing it herself on her website. I just wish there were 'crop' options rather than doing the whole giant project cuz it's alot of background before you even reach the lady.
The new HAEDs have been tough to decide who should be kitted, each is so beautiful, and I must say they pack so much punch being only floss and fabric and huge besides, yet so simple to do. Many smaller projects are so much more expensive.

What I have been up to, is the sale at HAED, and discovering Paine Free Craft's site and all the lovelies they have to offer. I havent worked on my Haeds since moving to the new house, for I dont have any place to set up my big mag light. I really should get a floor stand or wheels stand for it! But am gonna try to putter along till then with the little cheapo one. From the Haed sale, I was gifted a RAK by a fellow blogger (hugs!!) and hope they enjoy thiers as much as I will, with a happy little thought or prayer for them in each stitch. That's alot of good vibes isnt it ;). I also added Ex Machina, Fallen Angel, Priya and a couple I cant remember the names of. Since getting back to Haeds though, I was so disappointed to learn Nene Thomas is no longer offered there. Gah, she was my main collection and there were so many I hadnt gotten. Who knows what the future holds so Im gonna do my best to not find myself in that position again, Still wish I had known :/ And it seems I need to get batteries for the light, but at least I did get the charts organized, some anyway.
Anyway, stitching for real has seen a little progress, mostly on Samhain but not enough to warrant a progress pic yet. This week promises a stitchy adventure with a sassy lady named Alice and we aim to go on a lns tour which will be amazing to run amuck in. Im hoping to find some fun Halloween things to play with on the holiday for my new tradition...
