Train of Dreams - 1st panel of 8 finished - 63.5 hours

OMG, I have finally finished the first panel of 8 on my HAED Train of Dreams, oh my word those confetti stitches didn't have slow me down for the past week, one good push this morning and it's complete.

So pleased, if I can do at least 2 hours a day every day, then I might get this finished by Christmas.

Still want to work on my Gemini HAED but that is a lot bigger and will take longer to complete.  I have it set up on my Needle Needs lap stand, so maybe I can work on that too and both will progress.

I never thought I would say this but my days of small stitching projects maybe over for a long while, I'm getting addicted to HAED

But you never know I'm sure something will spark my attention and I'll do something different.

Well here you go, my first panel complete.

Train of Dreams - 52 hours stitched so far...

I've carried on stitching my train of dreams this week.  I would love to have this full section finished by Monday but I'm not sure I will, I would have been working on this for a month on Monday.  But I didn't stitch anything over last weekend so if I had I would have made it.

I will see how much I can do over the next 2 days, and whether I want to carry on a little longer, I bet I will till I have have finished this section, then I should go back to Gemini, I'm waiting for some more side bars to arrive 2nd hand, then it would make it easier to switch projects without taking the stretchers off I can have TOD and Gemini set up and my other stretchers are on a smaller HAED that I want to work on too.

There just aren't enough hours in the day, especially since my working hours have gone up to full time again, I knew my part time hours wouldn't last long, damn, less stitching time now for me.
