Moon Hare - HAED | Update

 
 
Hello Peeps!
 
 
During the weekend, I've had another look through my various WIP / UFO.
Despite them all being neatly stored away,
their number is starting to grow too much to my liking
and is also making me feel bad.
 
There are a few small ones that I am the least concerned about,
as I know they will eventually get done.
 
However, there is a handful of larger projects that I feel seriously overwhelmed with.
 
You will remember the ones I've recently blogged about:
Ladybug & daisy and Etude au géranium.
 
Well, there is also...
 
 
Moon Hare
Designed by Suzanne Gyseman
 
A HAED design that I've found in TWOCS magazines
 
 
 
 
Stitched on 14 count DMC Magic Aida fabric.
2 over 1, full crosses, using DMC charted threads.
 
This was my first update on it, back in Aug 2015
 

 
 
Then how I left it back in Sep 2015
 


 
 And this is how it is now,
after I've worked on it a bit during the weekend
 
 
 
 
Another one that is far away from being done,
but working on it has certainly made me feel better!
 
 
So this is my plan:
Start a kind of rotation on my biggest WIPs,
so that I can focus on them during my weekends and in between my monthly smalls.
 
Sounds good!
Surely, this would be better than to leave them hidden away?!
 
 
Oh, and do you also remember my
Blue Eyes tiger
From Kustom Krafts??
 
 

 
Yep, I bet you've forgotten about that one too?
Well, this will be for another post.
 
 
Toodles,
Mii

    3. Merci Marie Christine! Oui, qui n'a pas d'encours?!
      Pour un HAED, il est plutot petit mais oui, beaucoup de petites croix sont tout de même présentes! Le tigre en est un autre. Il me parait plus facile a broder. Le diagramme est beaucoup plus facile a lire.
      J'en ai trouvé encore un autre!!! Ma Scapigliata par Da Vinci!!! Tout en Sepia! Je m'amuse :D
      Linda sur la blogosphere est brave, elle en a certainement plus que 75 :)

  2. The progress you made during the weekend is considerable . Well done. Yes rotation for big WIPs sounds good. I know the bad feeling of growing number of WIPs.

    1. Thank you!
      I believe a rotation would help me, slowly but surely :)

  3. After working on the Balinese Dancer for one and a half months every night I realised that for me rotation does not work, So I decided that I will stitch a little bit every day till a piece is finished. No more smalls.A big piece is much more satisfying than anything else.AriadnefromGreece!

    1. Your Balinese Dancer is stunning.
      I will still focus on my big WIPs during the weekend, as I have more free time to focus on them, unlike during the week.

  4. You made good progress on Moon Hare! Such a pretty design. Hope the rotation plan works for you....as long as you're enjoying your stitching, do what works for you :)

    1. Thank you Rhona.
      I am hoping by having a weekend plan for my "biggies", will help make progress on them all.
      I can already see that some will have more progress than others, as they are simply nicer to work on...

  5. So glad you got Moon Hare out again. I need to do that as well. I don't think it will be for this month though. Nice progress and of course I remember Blue Eyes, a beautiful design.

    1. Oh yes, you do have it too!
      I'm sure yours will be finished way before mine.
      I really do not like the chart with both colours & symbols.
      I did a B&W working copy but it's not ideal as some squares have no symbols and just different colours... What a pain!
      The hare looks gorgeous though and the colours are all so pretty!!

  6. That is a beautiful design, wish you a lot of happy stitching hours to finish this piece. Sunny greetings from New Orleans, Alice

      Simply trying to be organized for now. Not sure how long this is going to last but for now I'm happy to see progress being made on those WIPs :)
      Let's hope I don't fall behind with my smalls!

    1. Lol! I know I had more bigger projects than I thought!
      The is the tiger too and another sepia project I'll blog about soon... never ending!
      Let's hope this new plan will motivate me in adding a few crosses on all of them.

  12. Oh I love this rabbit. I'm so glad you pulled it out to work on again as I had not seen it being I'm rather new to blogland. I think it is going to be so gorgeous when finished. You are making wonderful progress. RJ

      I will try to focus on those biggies but I will work on one project at a time during those weekends.
      Let's hope I can add a few crosses there and there!

  13. You stitched a lot over the weekend, especially for a HaED. Too many WIPs make me feel bad too. We cannot neglect them!

    1. Thanks sweetie, that's how I feel.
      I started those projects because I love them, so why put them aside now?
      It must be all that Spring air playing up on me and making me sound all organized with rotation!!! How long is this going to last?

  15. Oh Mii, you've been really hard-working. So many beautiful cross stitches. Large and small works, and I like them all. It was a pleasure to see that you have also started Geranium, it is so wonderful and so are Under the Sea and Moon Hare.

  16. You made a good progress! I have my kitty litter project as a large project to which I have started dedicating my first week of month so that I am done with my frustration of not doing enough on the never ending project:) so far the plan is working. I hope your rotation will help you progress and more than that it will lower the anxiety levels of working with big projects. Good luck!

    1. Oh it's nice to know your rotation is working.
      I hope the same will happen for me. If I enjoy working on my smalls during the week, then I should be fine adding a few crosses on those scary never ending bigger projects.

  21. Great progress on the Hare. I decided to have one BAP as a focus per month, that seems to work well for me. This month it's Gathering Honey again as there's now a deadline!

  24. It's wonderful to see you working on a HAED Ingrid! :) After awhile big projects do become less overwhelming... I like to think of each page as a mini finish and focus on what has been completed rather than what's left to stitch. You've made fantastic progress!!! :D

    1. Awww thank you Megan!
      Yes, a HAED from mii... this is crazy! Probably will be my only one although I have 2 other charts in my stash.
      They are beautiful but take ages to finish. I'd like to think I have passed the half way point on the first page.

  27. I always get so excited when I see this hare, it has a special place in my heart - and judging by the great progress you made in just one weekend, you`ll finish this sooner than you`d think! ;) I hear you re: the chart though - I have to say, when I stitched it for WOCS, I ended up using the original B&W Haed chart but I think your working copy is a good idea - I`d probably mark those squares that only have colour with 1s, 2s, etc., maybe then the chart would be easier to follow...? Good luck with it and I`m looking forward to seeing your finish! :) xx

    1. Thank you so much for visiting & commenting!
      The coloured chart is truly the only let down for me.
      I am so worried of using the wrong colour, that I keep both B&W and colour with me at all time when working on it. Your suggestion of marking the squares is really good (why didn't I think of that?) and I will do that for the next time I'll be working on it.

  28. Good luck with these big WIPs! I know what you mean, I always feel so anxious when I have too many UFOs. Your stitching is lovely! :D

      As long as we keep stitching on it, one day they will be done and we won't feel guilty anymore :)

  29. A little bit of stitching is better than none at all. I bet you will surprise yourself at the amount you stitch over a period of a weekend.
