August Part I

We'll I've decided that the three day rotation wasn't going to work for me after starting my HAEDs.  I've moved to a one week rotation and it seems to be working much better.  I actually feel like I'm making progress and even have a finish this month.  This new rotation also means that even though there are nine projects in the rotation I won't be posting about them every month.

First, here is my finish. I finished the "Valentine" monogram.  I love the colors but now think that I should have done it over one instead of over two.  It just seems too big.  I'll keep it around and, who knows, maybe eventually I'll redo it over one.

Now for the progress.  The two HAEDs were started under the three day rotation so there isn't much to show this round.  Here is the tiger HAED Mishra is suppose to look like when it is finished.

And here is where I am:

The Christmas HAED that I am working on is actually one of their free patterns and has actual spaces in the chart that have no stitching.  Here is what is supposed to look like when it is finished.

And here is where I am:
I know that most people start the HAED designs in the upper left hand corner, but for some reason it is easier, and makes more sense to me, to start in the lower left corner.

My last progress is for the Cuddled Cat in a Quilt.  I don't have a picture for this one and it was slowing me down working on it for some reason. So I searched for the design online and found a picture on eBay.  Looking at the picture all I could think was...I don't remember this being what it is suppose to look like.  LOL, oh well, I'm making more progress on it now. 

Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching everyone.

I do a weekly rotation. I find it gets enough done without boredom setting in. Nice wips, lover the tiger.
