Still Lost but one page closer to a finish!

Page 1 Complete
Lost in You - Rachel Marks

I managed to finish page 1 on Lost in You! It's beginning to feel alot like progress. I also entered this project in the HAED confetti SAL so killed 2 birds so to speak. For my next rotation it will be another Jasmine Becket-Griffith (sorry Mrs. D I know you don't like her artwork) "Where is my Valentine?" This chart was the very first chart that I bought off the HAED website. I just fell in love with it. What's not to love she reminded myself of me! A little impudent girl with a hand on her hip demanding her Valentine!!! Plus it was sooo PINK.

However she also served in the beginning of my demise. There was a time believe it or not when I was only a one project at a time girl. But I couldn't wait to start her and once she was downloaded I was in my car and on the way to Spotlight to buy all the required stuff.

Now if you get away with convincing yourself to start a project whilst another is still going once then trust me you can do it 15 times. Which is why I find myself in a position where rotations are required if I'm ever going to achieve a finish in my lifetime!!!

I also realised that I haven't added the links to all the projects. So I have gone through my blog and added the links. If you click on the title of a chart in the text that is blue it will take you to the website I purchased it from and you can also view other charts by the same artist.
Where is my Valentine?

Isn't she gorgeous?? Got a long way to go though but she is fun to stitch and that's all that counts.

 Golden Wood was next in the rotation but after stitching for over a week on a monochrome project I just needed to work on a vibrant project. Golden Wood is pretty but with all the browns and yellow hues it was just not calling to me. So decided to swap those 2 in the rotation. Will head to the Woods next week.

I hope everyone is enjoying life and only seeing rainbows. Happy stitching to my sisters and brothers of the thread. Good to see some males are into cross stitching and breaking those gender stereotypes. I will speak to you next week. Take care stunners!

  1. Yay! congrats on your first page finish!
    That is a such a great design, it will look amazing once it is done.

    Haha! I love the look on her face! She's gorgeous!
    That would be a fun one to do, with all the big blocks of colour.

    You made great progress. Looking forward to seeing more of both of these :)

    Happy Stitching

  2. Aww thanx Bec you're so sweet. I know her facial expression is priceless! I can't wait to get to actually stitching her, background can be monotonous after a while.

    Have a great week!

  7. Hi Alicia,
    Thanks for your message on the HAED BB. All your wips are brilliant. I have managed to narrow my wips down to 4. If you let me know when you are next working on Lost in you, I will work my rotation, around that. Check out my blog at
    Take care Laura


Hello Stunner! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. I hope it made sense as I can rave on lunatic style when left unchecked. Any comment is appreciated and thank you for taking the time and brightening my day! xoxo
