Missed Me?

Did you miss me? It was really weird last night. My nightly routine for 31 days was at 9pm to put my stitching down pull out my laptop and update my blog. I missed updating you guys. Then this morning I didn't have near as many email to go through haha. I missed you guys too. LOL So I figured I would pop in and let you all know what jumped on my Q-Snaps yesterday...
This is my HAED Hope. I only had 670 left to finish this page. Now I only have 470 left. Then I'll have 2 pages left. I think I will stick with her until I finish this little column. She was really upset she had to hide in the tote the whole month of January.

I also wanted to share with you my reward for completing the DUCJC...
I have a subscription to Stoney Creek magazine. When I got the latest one I saw this beautiful Seasonal Bell Pull. I got to looking and I had the whole set of patterns since I've subscribed all year. I've never done a bell pull and I just can't wait. I'm going to order Spring and then when I get to the last block I will reward myself with the things for the next season. Sound good? Just what I need....another project right? LOL

  2. Great progress. A HAED is quite different from all of the smaller projects from DUCJC. Beautiful colours in the HAED too, enjoy stitching her. The bell pull is stunning. Enjoy stitching that when you get chance to start

  3. Yes, I missed you! But like you I couldn't keep away today either! I'm glad Hope has come back out to play. The volume level in your house must be unbearable with all those WIPs screaming for attention! I like your Spring Bell Pull. I've seen someone somewhere stitching Autumn which is gorgeous. I'll look forward to seeing your 32nd new start of the year! :)

  4. Nice progress on your HAED. And a Stoney Creek pattern as a reward, great. I love Stoney Creek and they have so many nice books that I want to order immediately. But I'll be reasonable and start stitching on something I already have from them.

  12. Of course we've missed your daily post!!
    We're all going to suffer with withdrawal symptoms :D
    I love Hope, so I'm glad you worked on her.
    I had to laugh at your "Treat"!! Admit it, it's just an excuse for another new start! I do like your choice and I am looking forward to see your progress :)

  13. Congrats on being nearly done with Hope! Can't wait to see the finish! I made a bellpull before there were tutorials... it's 'primitive' but I like the flowers! Ha!

  15. Hope is looking fantastic! She is getting so close to a finish. :) The Spring bell pull is GORGEOUS. (On another note... I love Stoney Creek patterns. I have never subscribed to a cross stitch magazine, but I may have to look that one up!)

  19. Yay, Hope again! She is so close to being finished.

    Oh my, this is a new design for their Spring Bell Pull! I've been admiring the older designs for a long time. Eek. I'm way too excited about this. Stoney Creek is the one magazine that sorely tempts me to subscribe. Their designs are very happy.
