The topic this month is to pick one of the projects we worked on this month and tell about our stitching journey. I am picking Little Fairies at Play. I had been watching everyone stitching on HAED's but never saw one that really made me want to start stitching it. Then while browsing at my LNS one day I saw Little Fairies at Play. I knew I had to stitch it and thought it would look great hanging in my future granddaughter's room. My daughter was not married at the time. I began stitching this in 2011. I decided to use scroll rods for the first time and went to the lumber store to get 2 rods long enough. I quickly fell in love with this project. It is 28 pages long and 146,700 stitch es. After 4 years I am just about to finish page 7. Since my first HAED purchase I have purchased several more. 2 are larger than this one. One would look great in a future grandson's room. I have 2 HAEDs in progress and will start my 3rd one in 2016. My new motto is If I never start I will never get finished. Still no grandkids so I am ahead for the moment.
